Kanye West on the cover of Complex Magazine April 2009
Kanye West hits the cover of Complex Magazine in a unique transformation for the April/May issue. The photo was done by Chris Milk and Graphics Lab at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies for the concept.
Youâ€™re driving us through L.A. with no driver or bodyguardâ€”
Kanye West: Yeah. Iâ€™m rich and Iâ€™m famous, but I try not to be extra with it.
[Laughs.] Has the recession affected you?
Kanye West: Yeah, I try to avoid it overly affecting me. But some shit has happened, like Best Buy was supposed to [shoot and produce] the tour DVD and they pulled out of it. I definitely got hit with that, because not shooting it was not an option, so I had to pay for it.
