Like him or not, Kanye West is a man who lives his brand

 

He's more than a musician.
More than a producer. And more
than his shoes, blogs and books.
Though many things come to mind,
one word that will forever describe
the Kanye West brand, is artist.

 

His need to speak out against injustice (sorry Taylor), his sensitivity to issues, and even his overconfidence all speak
to the inner conflict that frankly,
makes an artist an artist.

 

To live your brand, it has to be honest. Your emotions have to be pure.
If you align yourself with things you're passionate about, push yourself to
be your personal best, and stay true
to your beliefs you will ultimately thrive. 

 

The Kanye brand is evidence of that.
