In this week’s music beat, Q102’s Mike Adams snags an interview with the man, the legend: Kanye West. The rapper was in town performing at the Wells Fargo Center in support of the critically-acclaimed “Yeezus,” and Mike gets the inside scoop on what it was like making the album. Plus, hear how Kanye thinks he stacks up to rappers like 2Pac and BFF Jay-Z.

The outspoken performer has been making headlines lately, having just picked up Grammy nominations for best rap song (for “New Slaves”) and best rap album (the aforementioned “Yeezus” is up for that honor). On top of that, he’s been getting a lot of attention for his elaborate proposal to Kim Kardashian and the couple’s provocative music video for his new single “Bound 2.”

Mike finds out how Kanye thinks his style has evolved since his “College Dropout” days and at what moment the artist first considered himself a rapper. Take a look!
