Kanye West wants to become as legendary as The Beatles

By Staff

Washington, Nov 24 : Kanye West has urged his fellow music artists to work extremely hard to become as legendary as The Beatles.

At the 2008 American Music Awards on Nov23, 08, the rapper took the stage to accept his award for Favourite Rap/Hip-Hop Album, reports Contactmusic.

While receiving the award, he said: "I want to thank everybody who accepted me trying to break new boundaries in music. I wake up in the morning and just think about what stereotypes I want to break and we push the envelope with the last album, with Stronger, with records they thought wouldn't play on urban radio.

"And it's our responsibility as musicians to keep pushing each other and keep competing with each other. It's a really great competition. I see artists like Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Chris Martin all in the dame music. And we're going to push music to the point where it was like in the 60s in the 70s where you talk about Led Zeppelin and Hendrix and The Beatles - we will be the new Beatles, the new Hendrix."
