Kanye West has reportedly declared himself the new King of Pop.

The hip-hop star has decided that he is the right artist to take over Michael Jackson's crown and has said that he is as popular as the late pop icon, according to Scrape TV.

West said: "You know everyone loves and respects Michael but times change. It's so sad to see Michael gone but it makes a path for a new King of Pop and I'm willing to take that on. There's nobody who can match me in sales and in respect so it only makes sense for me to take over Michael's crown and become the new King.

"First there was Elvis [Presley], then there was Michael, now in the 21st century it's Kanye's time to rule. I am the new King of Pop."
