In an upcoming interview premiering on Netflix, the Chicago rapper explained how he gets discriminated against. 

He claims that people wouldn’t take what he says seriously. In an article, he said, people would cut his sentences off halfway, and his words didn’t “mean as much.”

According to a source he said, “It’s a health issue that has a strong stigma on it and people are allowed to say anything about it and discriminate in any way.”

Kanye continued, 

“This is like a sprained brain, like having a sprained ankle. And if someone has a sprained ankle, you’re not going to push on him more.”

Yeezy spoke on the different moods he goes through. He said when he’s going through a severe episode it feels like “hyper-paranoia.” He also said when he’s in a “ramped up” mode, his personality is expressed more.

He also spoke on having to have a deep level of trust for the people around him when he’s in a mental facility. 

“They have this moment where they put you – they handcuff you, they drug you, they put you on the bed, and they separate you from everyone you know. That’s something that I am so happy that I experienced myself so I can start by changing that moment.”

Looks like Kanye is taking the necessary steps to keep his mental condition under control. He was diagnosed back in 2017.
