He’s been pretty active in the Twitterverse as of late, and Kanye West's latest rant contains something of a confession.

Following his remarks about being the best musician alive, the “Jesus Walks” hitmaker tweeted, “Man, I was thinking about when I commented on the idea of ‘taking the rap throne’… That statement hasn’t been sitting well with me… That’s a dated mentality. I’m not on that. Every rapper is somebody’s favorite. Some rappers got the club. Some got the radio. Some got the conscience. Some got the streets. Everybody has something they do the best.”
