Kanye West says he thought about killing himself, but now feels a responsibility to make a meaningful contribution to pop culture and art.
The 33-year-old rapper told an audience at a screening in Los Angeles for his new film, Runaway, that although there have been times when he “contemplated suicide,” he “will not give up on life again.”
West is credited as director of the abstract 35-minute film, which features portions of nine new Kanye West songs, boldly colorful visuals, and off-kilter camera angles.
