Kanye West compares Jay-Z to Sinatra

KANYE WEST has said friend Jay-Z is like Frank Sinatra.

The R&B star said the rapper was one of many of today's musicians who he described as "the champions" and all show similar characteristics to icons such as Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters.

Writing on his online blog, West said: "I look at our current superstars like legends in the Justin is the new Mike, Beyonce's the new Tina Turner, GaGa's Madonna, Jay is Sinatra...Wayne is Hendrix, Thom Yorke is Roger Waters.

"These are the champions and should be documented as such."
He also used his blog to praise a paparazzi photograph of Rihanna, which he said had not only captured the singer's beauty, but had brought the idyllic landscape to life.

He added: "Why can't all paparazzi photos be this good? Well, obviously because most celebs just aren't Rihanna, LOL!

"But on the real, this pic is hardcore. Peep the perspective shot of the city in the back. Sometimes the paps overexpose the lens or have the flash too high taking all the emotion out of the moment.

"This moment is captured in time now. Good job on this one!"
