(Newser) – Kanye West has declared himself “the voice of this generation,” comparing himself to basketball’s biggest star and running down Justin Timberlake in the process, the AP reports. “When Justin went on vacation I made albums,” said the Grammy-winning rapper-producer. “It's one thing to say you want to do it and it's another thing to really end up being like Michael Jordan.”
