Kanye West is at it again.

The 34-year-old hip-hop star had a pensive moment during a performance in England on Saturday night and likened himself to one of the biggest monsters in history -- none other than Adolf Hitler.

TMZ got ahold of a video of his monologue during the Big Chill Festival in Herefordshire, England.

"And once again I wake up, and I'm a monster. And I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street and people look at me like I'm f--king insane, like I'm Hitler," the singer explained.

The comment was immediately greeted with audible chuckles and "whoas" from the audience.

But that didn't deter the determined West. "One day, one day a light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did, ever said, was to throw myself on the blade for the sake of someone else, for the sake of people," he continued.

A voice in the video can be heard shouting, "Shut the f--k up!"

According to the site, West didn't stop there, saying that he was the Michael Jordan of music. "Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It's so much f--king going on in music right now and somebody has to make a f--king difference."
