Kanye West Unpacks the Many Layers of His Life in New Interview With Charlamagne [VIDEO]
Just two weeks after being spotted outside of his Calabasas office, Kanye West has released the one-on-one sit down between her and Charlamagne Tha God.
The two have publically had their battles on Charlamagne's syndicated radio show "The Breakfast Club," but the two have taken a liking and have an understanding of each other.
The interview that is nearly two hours long, covers a variety of topics including public perception of his music after the Taylor Swift incident, his mental health, and his return to Twitter.
On the lack of radio play after releasing The Life of Pablo in 2016:
"Every since the Taylor Swift moment it just never been the same -- the connection with radio. It's like whatever powers that be, it was much harder after that."
On why he doesn't go to therapy:
"I use the world as my therapist. Anyone I talk to is my therapist. I will pull them into the conversation of what I'm feeling at that point and get their perspective. Sometimes they're like, 'Damn, I'm talking to 'Ye, I'm not expecting this.' I talk through things with anybody I'm around, and I put that as a vice to people. It's like, use people around you as your therapist, 'cause they probably know more about you."
On the feud with JAY-Z and the line about him in "Kill Jay-Z":
"That's what frustrated me because actually, that was... he got it from Live Nation. Roc Nation was managing me at the time, that's something normal that someone would give someone a touring deal. it was a touring deal. But the fact that it was worded that it came from him... I'm a very loyal, emotional person. That made me feel like I owed more than just the money itself for the fact that it came from him. It just put me under a bit more kind of controlled situation. I'm only acting out of love, I don't need to be controlled, I just need to be inspired and informed, and I can be the best 'Ye in that way."
