Kanye West considers himself a privileged man.
Musical success aside, the 21-time Grammy-winning rapper is counting his blessings when it comes to living with what he has called a mental condition. In a recent interview with Big Boy TV, the star explained how making his eighth studio album offered him an outlet and opportunity others do not have.
"Think about people that have mental issues that are not Kanye West, that can't go and make that and make it feel like it's all good," he said. "Think about somebody that does exactly what I did at TMZ and they just do that at work, but then Tuesday morning they come in, they lost their job and they can't go back and make that. That's why God put that on me at age 40."
