*Kanye West broke his six-week Twitter silence this week to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the Watch the Throne tour and to revisit his childhood home during the tour’s Chicago stop.
The clips, via the $5-monthly service VOYR, shows Kanye putting on gold bracelets and Air Yeezy sneakers, as well as pontificating about the types who will show up at his homegoing.
“I was just thinking about my funeral and stuff a couple days ago and thinking who would be at the funeral,” he says. “People who I want to be in the funeral? I wanna have world leaders that were, like, affected, that said, you know, ‘Kanye gave me my shot here.’ Or ‘he pushed me,’ or ‘he told me to believe in myself,’ or ‘when I saw this, it made me feel like that.’ I wanna affect people like that when I, like, pass away.”
The VOYR website was set up to showcase the behind the scenes footage to show what went into creating the Watch The Throne album and tour.
The second five-minute episode shows West returning to his old neighborhood, his primary school and his childhood home, as well as backstage footage, concert footage, and a meet with director Spike Lee.
He talks about drawing football players when he was five, his childhood pet dog Genius, and drops a little inspirational pep talk.
