Kanye West wants the world leaders who have been affected by his music to come to his funeral.

“They say, he must had an angel, cuss look how death missed his ass. Unbreakable, what you thought they’d call me, Mr. Glass?” ~ Kanye West

With the recent passing of influential soul and jazz poet Gil Scott-Heron on May 27, 2011 and Kanye West’s recent tribute at his funeral, where he performed the song “Who Will Survive in America” co-written by Scott-Heron – it shouldn’t come as any surprise that many of us have a little voice in the back of our minds which has an idea of how our funerals will be held; who will attend; and how we’ll be remembered.

Recently, for the 34 year-old rapper and recording producer, West has taken into consideration aspects of his own mortality and expressed what his final sendoff would entail. Much like how Johnny Depp recently expressed interest in having his cremains mixed with whiskey for friends and family to drink from, or how Hunter S. Thompson envisioned his ashes be fired from a canon, West explained in a commentary for his behind the scenes daily video document of the West and Jay-Z “Throne Tour” exactly who would attend his funeral and how he would be remembered.

“I was just thinking about my funeral and stuff a couple days ago and thinking who would be at the funeral and people who I want to be in the funeral” West said. “I wanna have world leaders that were, like, affected, that said, you know, ‘Kanye gave me my shot here,’ or ‘He pushed me,’ or ‘He told me to believe in myself,’ or ‘When I saw this, it made me feel like that.’ I wanna affect people like that when I pass away.”

While he has said he was thinking of his own funeral the last couple of days, West has had recent misfortune in his life beginning with the loss of his mother Donda West on November 10, 2007 due to complications from cosmetic surgery. Further, West was the subject of an Internet hoax, in which a news report claimed he had been killed in a serious car crash on October 20, 2009. While the rumors quickly spread throughout the social networking circles such as Twitter, followed by a series of tribute videos, the news was quickly refuted.
