Well this is pretty interesting. Hypebeast has unearthed a very rare & exclusive Kanye West interview from 2013 that showcases the artist before his YEEZY fashion line and adidas partnership.

Shot for the Stones Throw documentary Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton, the intimate & candid, one-on-on interview finds Kanye getting deep in thought & talking about his relationship with the late Detroit producer J Dilla, who he compared to being the “Margiela of hip-hop,” his upbringing in Chicago, fashion parallels to artists and designers, and much more.

Running 22-minute long, the interview gives fans a good insight into Kanye’s mindset before he took on fashion with Adidas & even married Kim K. for that matter. Check out the rare & intimate conversation (below).
