“When you said I hadn't read this book, I actually haven't read any book,” he said. “Reading is like eating brussel sprouts for me. And talking is like getting the Giorgio Baldi corn ravioli.”

Also during the interview, Kanye took aim at Gap and Adidas as his relationship wiens with both companies, however he didn’t directly address his standing with both.

“I honestly believe that Gap and Adidas are part of a bigger plan to marginalize American companies and American industry,” he said. “Which is the opposite of what Danny’s doing. … In this prison of finger pointing and name calling, a little crack of light, a little Shawshank Redemption came through that prison cell at that factory today.”
