Here's a sneak peek at Kanye West's interview with Kris Jenner, and not only does his voice sound different (seriously ... are we imagining this?), but it sounds like the angsty rapper has a new outlook on life now that he's a dad!
Yeezy gushes about baby mama Kim Kardashian and their two-month-old daughter North, and he even opens up about the passing of his mother Donda.
Speaking of his relationship with Kim, Kanye told her mom, "I could have people say, 'This is going to damage your credibility as an artist or designer.' And I say, you know, I don't care, I love this woman. Or someone could say, when the paparazzi surround you, people everywhere know you don't like paparazzi, but why you be with this person, and I'm saying I'm being with this person because I love this person. She's worth it to me." After mentioning the recent passing of his grandfather Portwood Williams, Sr., West added, "His whole thing was about joy, having joy in his life. [Kim is] my joy. She brought my new joy into the world..." Awwww!
West also opened up about the 2007 death of his mother, and he got rather emotional. "There were times [after her death], I would put my life at risk. I didn't have something to live for," he said. "Now I have two very special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for."
Who knew we'd ever see this side of the rapper?!
