Overcoming the Odds
Three years earlier, Oprah pulled up next to Kanye at a stoplight to ask about his car, which was the same model she owned. Kanye told Oprah he was a rapper from Chicago, and one day he was going to be on her show.
"People say that to me all the time," Oprah says. "But you're the first person that ever made that true!"
"I'm living a dream. If you're in a dream and things are going bad, you mentally can change that and adjust your dream," Kanye says. "So I live this life like it's a dream, and I speak it into fruition. 'I will be on The Oprah Winfrey Show one day.'"
