Watch Kanye West Talk About His Mental 'Breakthrough' with Charlamagne tha God

May 1, 2018

By Erin Thibeau

Kanye West has shared an in-depth interview he gave to Charlamagne tha God at his home in Calabasas. 

The conversation runs an hour and 45 minutes long. It was recorded on April 18 (notably before Kanye really went off on Twitter and declared his love for Donald Trump).

Kanye talks about how he's been since his mental breakdown, or "breakthrough," his disappointment in the performance of "The Life of Pablo," Kim's robbery in Paris and more.

"I use the world as my therapy," he tells Charlamagne, "Anyone I talk to is my therapist."

"I wanna change the stigma of crazy," he continues. 

On his return to social media, Ye explains that he didn't have much to say during his absense, but now, "I felt the need to speak at this point...I'm not trying to say the right thing; I'm just saying exactly what I feel, out of love."

He also touches on his relationship with JAY-Z. Kanye says the the $20 million Jay gave him, referenced on the album "4:44," was in fact a touring deal from Live Nation, not a personal gift from Jay.

Kanye says he and Jay are on better terms these days, however, "I haven't seen him, but I can feel him."
