Jay-Z made Apple buy Beats

Written by Nick Farrell

Kayne West’s bizarre claim

Popular beat combo artist Kayne West claims that Apple was forced to buy beats after Jay-Z started working with Samsung. West is an archetypal Apple fanboy who last year actually claimed he was Steve Jobs which required a piece of metaphysics of which we are unfamiliar with. He also tried to get the Cannes Advertising Festival renamed Cannesye Advertising Festival, but failed. At Cannes he was trying to tell anyone that Samsung was the devil.

He said "throughout my entire life, because of how my parents raised me, I have to work with the No. 1."

“I can't work with anyone but Jay Z, because he's No. 1. I can't be with any girl but Kim, because that's the girl whose pictures I look at the most and get turned on by. I'm not going to represent any company but Louis Vuitton, because that's No. 1. ... Samsung is not quite Apple, but it showed that Jimmy [Iovine] and Dre would be able to connect with the No. 1 influencers."

In other words Jimmy and Dre are nearly at West's exalted level now that they have become part of the mighty Apple cult.

When asked if Jay-Z was number One, what's he doing working with a number two like Samsung? It is a bit of a philosophical conundrum which Kane seemed to want to avoid talking about.

He said Steve Jobs was his biggest influence. “Just seeing the way he fought to make things easier for people. After he passed, I made it my life's mission to do what he did inside of that company. I dream to help raise the palate and raise the taste level of a generation and also be involved with the production and distribution and advertising of that thing everyone's begging for."

Begging for? Hmmmm… no to easy.
