Kanye West was at Oxford University today.

Kanye West visited Oxford University on Monday and students live blogged some of the crazy things the US rapper came out with. Yeezus spoke at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History at a function hosted by the Oxford Guild Business Society, which dates back to 1897.

The society announced the news on Facebook yesterday after "a great deal of hard work and extensive negotiations." Naturally, when the man himself actually took to the stage, there was much excitement. More than 1,600 people said they were attending on Facebook.

Students kept the public updated about their special guest on a standalone publication called "Versa" and tweeted about the goings on using hash tags such as #YesWeKanye. The Tab, the country's cross-uni student newspaper, also did a live blog on Twitter.

Kanye got going at 3pm and talked for around half an hour. Versa noted initial doubts that the whole project could have been a "monumental troll," but just before the hour mark confirmed that he was in the building. The President of the Oxford University Student Union tweeted this photo of the event:

We all know about West's antics, odd thoughts, and love of Steve Jobs - and his university "lecture" didn't disappoint. It follows a very different setting to his Nando's exploits last month, and his most recent moment of absurdity at the Grammys, of course.

Some of the things he said during his speech at Oxford University, documented by Versa in full, have to be among the most memorable.

Here are a few highlights from The Tab on Twitter:

And here are some more from Versa:
 
Kanye: "Now I understand that I'm just serving, and with my voice and my ability to build relationships, and call Elon Musk or Obama out of the blue, with that I have a responsibility to serve. Why I say the Matrix is like the Bible and what is my definition of the Matrix?"

K: "
You're looking for this moment where you sit in your BMW and you look at all of the work that you've done and how big your house is, and somehow you think you're gonna get that level of joy that my daughter had when she was seeing those wolves."
