It’s already well established that Kanye West is far from boring. Indeed, one of the major reasons why West remains such an interesting and exciting figure to keep an eye on is that he’s not one to shy away from making incredibly boastful and unintentionally hilarious declarations. On the contrary, he seems to embrace it.
To wit, West, during one of his epic Twitter rants yesterday, matter-of-factly stated that his new album was a “30 out of 10”, which of course was preceded by West boasting that he is this generation’s version of Walt Disney and that he’s also rich enough to buy furs and houses for his family. For anyone who has followed West throughout his career, it should come as no surprise that these examples represent just a small fraction of West’s outlandish and comical boasts.
With that in mind, an emerging hashtag on Twitter dubbed #Outboastkanye has the masses poking more than a little bit of fun at the man famously married to Kim Kardashian. As the hashtag implies, tweets under that hashtag feature users making claims that are so bizarre and out there that they rival, if not surpass, anything that West himself might ordinarily say. Of course, some are comically ironic as well.
Below are a few of the better gems we’ve come across so far.
