We don't know if you guys have heard, but Kanye West is kind of a big deal. Not only is he a big deal, he's actually a present to us mortals from the big G-O-D upstairs. Don't believe us? Ask him yourself! We've collected all of Kanye West's boastful comparisons to celebrities throughout history, whether made in interviews, songs lyrics, or live performances. It's quite impressive, but obviously not nearly as impressive as 'Ye himself.

Kanye West isn't exactly famous for his humility or known to shy away from one of his infamous Kanye West public outbursts. He compares his "creative genius" to the likes of Andy Warhol, Walt Disney, and Socrates. He considers himself as both a God, and the prophet Jesus Christ. We're not making this up. He really said it. Check it out for yourself.

Under each person we have included a quote from Mr. West himself, and, as these are from the mighty lips of Kanye, read with caution. These are probably some of the funniest quotes and most ridiculous comparisons ever, but it's up to you to decide which are the craziest. Cast your vote below or Kanye will be very, very mad at you.
