I applaud Kanye West's efforts in always saying what's on his mind. Regardless of the headlines, he does get people talking, right?
The Sun reports that the Grammy Award-winning rapper's latest mouthful comes in praise of Coldplay. He's proclaimed that the English alt-rock foursome — Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion — are better than Britain's original Fab Four, The Beatles.
"America has, and probably always will, dominate music across the globe but it's always been the British who pull out that very special band," West said.
He explained further that while the U.S. has birthed highly influential acts like Nirvana and Guns N’ Roses, it's the British who ultimately have the most talent.
"In 30 years, when Coldplay are old men, people will look back and say, 'These guys were more talented than The Beatles'," West added. "I have worked with Chris Martin and the man is a genius – as a performer and a songwriter he is on the same level as John Lennon."
Martin lent West a hand with the chorus on "Homecoming", which is included on his double-platinum 2007 album, Graduation.
"I am not saying this sort of s*** lightly, it's really how talented the guy is. And Coldplay can go down as the best ever – even bigger than The Beatles."
