Kanye West has big plans for his unborn son, but they aren’t really what you’d expect.
The 38-year-old responded:
“I don’t have a name for him, but what I hope for him is that he can feel purpose.”
What does ‘Ye mean by that? Well, he attempts to elaborate by rambling about one time when he watched some teenagers miss their bus, saying:
“The other night I was driving in Paris, and I saw these three high school kids running top speed. 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?'”
For those of you wondering why in the heck Kanye would want his child to experience the frustration of not being able to catch the last bus, he explains:
“Because once you’ve felt that, then none of these f*cking 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*ck about any of this. 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.”
So, what we think the rapper was trying to say was that he wants North West‘s little brother to know what it feels like to struggle, so he can appreciate those moments when everything finally comes together.
But, he admits that might be difficult, since he lives in the lap of luxury:
“Do I worry about being in the public eye and raising kids? Yeah… but it’s champagne problems. It’s people who can’t feed their kids. That’s something to worry about more… These aren’t real issues. There’s people at war. There’s people trying to make it to London right now…. That celeb sh*t, it’s not real sh*t… You know what, I’m alive. I’m breathing… I have no problems.”
In fact, he adds that being a dad has changed his outlook on a lot of things:
“Three years ago, after this interview, I would’ve been on the train back to Paris to see the last of the shows to get that inspiration. Now, I’m on the first flight home to see my greatest inspiration, that’s my daughter.”
Even if you’re still confused about Kanye’s bus rant, one thing is clear: his wife, daughter, and future son are the most important things in his life:
“I just love my family.”
Awww! He DOES have a soft side!
