What an unusual Father’s Day gift.
The rapper shared a photo of two Apple Pro computer mice adorned with the autographs of Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak saying, “One of the other gifts my girl gave me for fathers day.”
Woz got wind of ‘Ye’s Tweet via Gizmodo and gave his account on how he came to sign the mouse.
“I signed this mouse right in front of Kanye, after chatting and joking with him for an hour or two, right in the hospital where Kim had given birth,” he wrote on Gizmodo’s site in the comments section. “I included a couple of other gifts. Kim went as far as she could to do the best things she could think of for Kanye and I’m impressed with her. I’m lucky to have the same with my wife Janet.”
West is a big admirer of the late Jobs and in fact thinks of himself as the “Steve Jobs” of his own industry.
“I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means,” he said in a recent interview with the New York Times. “I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.”
