Kanye West is trying to find the words to describe his mental state.
In a preview clip from his upcoming interview with David Letterman on “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction”, the rapper offers his own take on what goes on inside his mind.
“What is the mechanism that is malfunctioning in your brain — do you know?” Letterman asks him.
West responds, “I wouldn’t be able to explain that as much, because I’m not a doctor. I can just tell you what I’m feeling at the time. And I feel a heightened connection with the universe when I’m ramping up.”
He adds, “It is a health issue. This is like a sprained brain, like having a sprained ankle. And if someone has a sprained ankle, you’re not going to push on him more. [But] with us, once our brain gets to a point of spraining, people do everything to make it worse!”
In the long-ranging interview, West and Letterman also discuss the rapper’s support for Donald Trump, his beef with Drake and more.
West’s episode of “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” premieres on Netflix on Friday, May 31, along with four more interviews featuring Ellen DeGeneres, Tiffany Haddish, Lewis Hamilton and Melinda Gates.
