Kanye West spoke at Los Angeles Trade Technical College on Friday, May 29, 2015. It’s the same school where he taught in fulfillment of a community service requirement after his 2013 assault of a paparazzo.
In his address he said in part, “It’s a tough world out there. You’re going to prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hating employees ,and usually when you’re the absolute best, you get hated on the most.”
He went on to say, “Even for me, as a successful musician, in order to make the transition it was really all but impossible,” said West, adding, “People always try to box you in to what they know you best for.”
