Talking about the humbling experience with Radio 1’s Annie Mac, the Life of Pablo hit maker said that it put him in a depressed state.
“I don’t usually get nervous, I prepare, I get fully prepared,” he said. “When that music messed up in the beginning, it tapped into my nerves and when you’re nervous or vulnerable, something special and something different can happen.”
Saying that he was a “bit of a perfectionist,” the rapper said the experience made him recall when he was in high school and was fired from his job. This was the time when he played his music for R Kelly and was promised to be signed in, Mirror UK said in a report.
Kanye West said that those were the days when he could not afford a haircut and could not even take his girlfriend to the movies.

In the interview, Kanye West also said he wanted to be a US president so people can be open-minded on what is going on around them. He first aired his desire to run for president last year at the MTV Video Music Awards.
