On Monday, Kanye took to Twitter to show his 9,643,066 followers the unique present that girlfriend Kim Kardashian had bought for him on behalf of his daughter, who was born just two days before Father's Day: a pair of computer mice signed by Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.
hop star, who does not tend to share much with the public – he has just seven
tweets to date – was clearly delighted with the surprise. He wrote, "One
of the other gifts my girl gave me for fathers day," along with a photo of
the accessories. The rapper, 36, and his reality TV star girlfriend had kept quiet since the
birth of their first child on 15 June, but he couldn't keep the excitement – or
the unique gift – to himself any longer.
A long-standing fan of Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, Kanye thinks of himself as the Steve Jobs of the music 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... I think that's a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: 'This is the level that things could be at,'" he explained. "So when you get something that has the name Kanye West on it, it’s supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities."
Even though Steve Jobs sadly died in 2011 after his battle with pancreatic cancer, Kim and Kanye have become friends with Steve Wozniak. The mogul was even one of the first of close friends and family to meet their new bundle of joy – before Kim's brother Rob. "I have seen a lot of babies, and a baby represents the love between the people and that meant more to me and the love that Kim was showing to Kanye," Steve told Piers Morgan. He explained that Kim had arranged for him to meet beau Kanye for his 36th birthday – which he celebrated in June – because he 'was interested in technology and companies.'
