In an interview with 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen, the 36-year-old loquacious rapper dished to Interview magazine about why he considers his fiancé and daughter to be his "astronaut" family.
"You know, becoming famous is like being catapulted into space—sometimes without a space suit," Kanye said. "We've seen so many people combust, suffocate, get lost in all these different things."
"But to have an anchor of other astronauts and to make a little space family ... I mean, it's not like I'm the guy in The Hunger Games  begging for people to like me. I'm almost the guy with the least amount of "likes." I wanted a family. So God gives you opportunities, and you make sacrifices for something that's greater."
The hip-hop mogul and his ladylove welcomed their daughter last June and are currently making plans to wed overseas this summer.
