Audio was leaked of Kanye West venting his frustrations during a private conversation with his staff backstage before his ‘Saturday Night Live’ performance last weekend. 

West was upset about a last-minute change to the set.

In the audio, you can hear West comparing himself to film director Stanley Kubrick, Apostle Paul and Picasso. And Escobar. (We're guessing Pablo Escobar, the Colombian drug lord.)

West goes on to say he is "50 percent more influential than any other human being... for the next thousand years."
