Kanye West compared himself to Picasso, Steve Jobs and, er, Walt Disney during another expletive-ridden rant in Paris on Monday night (February 26). watch it below.

Following on from his tirade that covered everything from corporate sponsorship, the Grammy Awards and Justin Timberlake & Jay-Z's 'Suit & Tie' at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday (February 23), West had another tirade about pop commercialism.

The rapper told the crowd at Paris' Le Zenith: "There's no motherfucking awards or sponsorships or none of that shit that can stop the dedication to bringing y'all that real shit."

He continued: "No matter how they try to control you, or the motherfucker next to you tries to peer pressure you, you can do what you motherfucking want. I am Picasso. I'm Walt Disney, I'm Steve Jobs."

West's latest rant echoes his outburst at London's Hammersmith Apollo at the weekend, where he told the crowd: "They trying to put their logos on every concert and shit. For the meet and greet, you gotta meet the execs and their daughters. And they'll show you what they just bought her..."

He continued: "So, you gonna help me put on a better show, corporations? Can you please support me? Please? Me, Kanye West. I swear I'm a nice leader now. I swear I'll put the pink polo back on. I swear to you. Please. Just for $3 million. I need it so bad. I need a pool in my backyard! So I'll tell all my fans your shit is cool. And if they believe in me, then they’ll also believe in you."

Kanye West returns to the UK this Friday (March 1) when he plays a third date at London's Hammersmith Apollo.
