Kanye West may have an endless bank account, but he once was a struggling rapper and he wants his future son to know that feeling too. The rapper opened up in a new interview about his plans for his baby boy, and it’s actually amazing — watch!
Kanye West, 38, isn’t a man of few words, so it’s no surprise he got really candid in a new sit down interview. The soon-to-be father of two, spoke in a nearly two hour-long interview for SHOWstudio’s about his BIG plans for his future son with Kim Kardashian, 34.
Anna Wintour knows just what questions to ask Kanye. The rapper sat down for an interview during Paris Fashion Week, and the fashion icon submitted questions for him asking, “What will you name your son, and what do you hope for him as he gets older?”
Kanye responded with, “I don’t have a name for him, but what I hope for him is that he can feel purpose. The other night I was driving in Paris, and I saw these three high school kids running top speed,” he recalled. “I didn’t know if they were chasing a guy or what, and there was a bus on the side of the street that was about to pull off, and they were beating on the side of the bus. And I looked at the time and it was like, 1 a.m., so that might be the last bus of the night, and I was just like, really saddened. I was like, ‘How can I make my son feel that?'”
Kanye himself knows the true feeling of struggle and he hopes his future son will recognize that he is blessed. He added, “Because once you’ve felt that, then none of these f–king questions matter. When you’ve missed that last bus before, when you have the opportunity to get on the bus? You don’t give a f–k about any of this,” he admitted. “And having to sleep downtown in a parking lot, it’s almost like not feeling anything. It’s almost like being numb because of what I went through.”
Kanye On Raising Kids In The Public Eye — Watch
Kanye also went on to address raising his kids in the public eye. “Do I worry about being in the public eye and raising kids? Yeah, any situation you’re in you’re going to worry about raising kids, but it’s champagne problems. There’s people who can’t feed their kids. That’s something to more to worry about. So I’m not going to sit here and complain about the so-called problems I have. These aren’t real issues. There’s people at war…That celeb s–t, it’s not real s–t… You know what, I’m alive. I’m breathing… I have no problems.” Wow, it’s nice to hear Kanye doesn’t put his problems on the same level as people who live in poverty.
