Kanye West has compared his daughter North to Prince William and Kate Middleton.

North West, Kanye's daughter with fiancee Kim Kardashian, was born in June of this year. Kate Middleton gave birth to her son George in July. Speaking on US radio station Power 106, West said that his daughter's level of fame is only comparable to that of the royal couple.

"[My] daughter is in a position of a level of royalty like the prince and princess in London," West commented during one of many radio interviews he has given while touring new album 'Yeezus' around America in the past two months.

Speaking in a different radio interview earlier this week, West confirmed that he has signed a deal with sports brand Adidas. His relationship with Nike broke down when they refused to let him take royalties on his products. West claimed he was seeking more money now that he is a father and that his new deal will see him become "bigger than Walmart".

It was reported that West is planning to release his next solo album in Summer 2014.
