The rapper said that he wants to inspire the world's most powerful people to the point where they would attend his funeral when he dies.
"I was thinking about my funeral a couple of days ago. The people I want to be there are like world leaders," he said in his 'Watch the Throne' tour diary entry, titled 'World Leaders'.
"Ones that say, 'Kanye gave me my first shot, he told me to believe in myself'. I want to affect people like that if I pass away.
"When the light bulb was invented it wasn't to stop a war. I'm not saying what I'm doing is the most important thing that's happening on the planet. But it's necessary. Just like one teacher teaching in a class."
West recently admitted that he believes he is on "a pursuit of awesomeness".
