Kanye West Knows an Alarming Amount About 'Wreck-It Ralph'

In the third part of Kanye West's psychological evaluation/interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, Yeezy got really comfortable. Like, TMI comfortable. Like, went-on-a-30-second-rant-about-Wreck-It-Ralph comfortable.

Kanye touched on many peculiar topics with the radio DJ, including his frustrations over not being taken seriously as a fashion designer and how the only two words onlookers should be allowed to speak to artists are "Thank you." But 'Ye summed up the chat session with one of his weirdest references yet (next to that Waterboy line in "New Slaves"): Kanye likens himself to a character in 2012's Disney film about a video game villain, Wreck-It Ralph

Of course he does.

In the middle of a tirade about his grandfather's vintage furniture store, Yeezy suddenly shifted gears: "Do you know how many times I sat with people and said, 'Hey, I wanna make a store!' And they said, 'How could you make a store? Blah, blah, blah...' It's in my code. It's in my code! Have y'all ever seen Wreck-It Ralph?"

He continued by comparing himself to Wreck-It Ralph's main female lead, who is a computer glitch in the video game. "You telling me [people] don't look at me like the motherf-cking glitch?! You telling me people don't look at Kanye West like the glitch right now? And she was on the side of the video game! The whole time!"  

While we continue trying to process the idea of Kanye West LOLing in a hotel room by himself to a computer-animated movie for kids, at least we know he'll have no problem sitting down with daughter North West to watch all the advanced screening DVDs of new Disney movies. Probably repeatedly.

See all of Part 3 of Kanye's BBC Radio 1 interview above. Wreck-It Ralph stanning begins at 13:39.
