kanye-suicide-230.jpgKanye West dropped a major bombshell last night during his concert with Jay-Z in Los Angeles when he admitted that he once contemplated taking his life.

During a performance of We Made It In America, a source for Hollyscoop reports that Kanye "became emotional and confessed to the entire audience of the Los Angeles Staples Center that three years ago, after his mother passed away, he was on the brink of suicide."

Kanye then told the crowd, people tell you to always be humble, humble, humble, [but] when's the last time anyone told you to be amazing, great, or awesome?"

Later in the show, Yeezy got teary during his performance of "Heartless", but he calmed down and told concert-goers that he's in a better place now. I will not give up on life again, Kanye said. Theres so many people that will never get the chance to have their voice heardI do it for them.
