Kanye West has no regrets when it comes to speaking out publicly on social media and even (gasp!) reads the comments.

The 38-year-old outspoken rapper, fashion designer and husband of Kim Kardashian talked about his career and family in an interview on the Big Boy's Neighborhood radio show on hip-hop radio station Real 92.3 in Los Angeles Friday.

Earlier this year, Kanye made headlines over a slew of tweets about himself, his outlook on life, his finances and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who he urged to invest in "Kanye West's ideas." The rapper later said his "number one enemy" has been his ego. On Big Boy's Neighborhood, Kanye said he does not regret anything he does or anything he posts on Twitter, adding, "We're going to be gone in 100 years. I can't say enough."

He said Kim sometimes asks him about his tweets and he has to explain to her why he posted them.

He also does something that may not be great for his, well, ego.

"I wake up in the morning and go read comments," he said.

He says most words don't affect him, unless they're about his family.

"I'm crazy about my kids," he said. "I'm crazy about Kim."

One of his career inspirations appears to come from his and Kim's eldest child, daughter North West, 2. The two are also parents to 6-month-old son Saint West.

"I'm so happy to be a father," Kanye said. "I want to learn what my daughter has to say. What she learns. I just want to learn how she learns in this world. I'm extremely protective."

"When I left Nike for Adidas I did it for my daughter," he said, referring to his deal with the latter shoe company to market Yeezy sneakers. "There was an opportunity to grow. There was love and admiration at Adidas, this was to make a better life for my daughter."

In his interview on Big Boy's Neighborhood, Kanye also talked about his music. The rapper, who released new album The Life of Pablo in February, dropped a new track, "Champions," featuring a slew of other artists, including Big Sean, 2 Chainz and Gucci Mane.


He said he is "usually constantly working on new music."

"I'm a champion. I'm a winner. I came to innovate. I came to change," he said. "This is like Michael Jackson level."

"You need a guy like me in the game," he added. "I only know how to give 1,000 percent."
