Kanye West has proclaimed himself the "greatest of all-time" on a number of occasions, but regarding his upcoming album WAVES, he's reeling it in a bit.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday (Feb. 2), Ye said the forthcoming project is "NOT" the greatest of all-time... out of respect to the greats before him.

"Out of respect for Q-Tip, Puff, Hov, Lauren, Pharcyde, Mary, Stevie, Michael, Hendrix, James, Pete Rock, Pac, Marvin... this new album is ONE of the greatest albums not the greatest just one of ..." he tweeted.

Kanye goes on to say that he made the album "to honor my idols".
