Keep your nose out the sky, keep your heart to god, and keep your face to the raising sun.— Kanye West

I know how to swim through backlash. I can tread water through backlash… If anything, that’s all giving me power.— Kanye West
For me, money is not my definition of success. Inspiring people is a definition of success.— Kanye West
