Kanye West: I am the Beethoven of music today

London: Rapper Kanye West says he has created the greatest modern music.

West, 35, who started his musical career in 1996 as a producer, said he is brilliant as a musician but has got many flaws as a human being, reported Sun online.

"I am flawed as a human being... But my music is perfect. You could go back to Beethoven and but as far as this lifetime, though, this is all you got," he said.

The Grammy-winning rapper performed a gig in New Jersey during the weekend and ranted about his perfection.
