MCQUEEN: To me, “Bound 2” looked like a Prince video. Aesthetically, it had that kind of feel. It wouldn’t have looked out of place if it were part of Purple Rain .
WEST: Well, I’d be biased to think that the community of Geminis is the most consistently in tune with what their spirit is telling them to do or why they have breath in their lungs. But I do think that creative Geminis—Tupac, Biggie, Prince, Miles Davis, all being Geminis—have, throughout history, been really in tune with those things. You know, some different friends of mine have been showing me these interviews that Tupac did and how they’re very simple and to the point. I watched them, and one of the things that Tupac kept saying is that he wanted thugs to be recognized. Now Jay-Z is a multi-hundred-millionaire who came from the streets, so Tupac’s mission, in a way, has been realized.
Actually, the whole article is a good read – the power of your dreams, art, streamlining your life, fuq the haters etc. But i love Kanye. He is in fact Sun conjunct Jupiter in Gemini – so he is like an uber-Gemini, Gemini magnified.
Jay-Z, he might be annoyed to grok, is a Sagittarius. Beyonce wrote Signs about him.”I fell in love with a Sagittarius.” Jay-Z also has Pluto Rising in Virgo. That will get you off the streets lol. Bieber has Pluto Rising as well. It’s a powerful mentor but not exactly mellow.
