The American rapper opened up about his bipolar disorder, which he called his “superpower,” to Forbes in a cover story published online Tuesday.Kanye West Speaks On Being 'Crazy'

“ ‘Crazy’ is a word that’s not gonna be used loosely in the future,” the 42-year-old predicted to Forbes. “Understand that this is actually a condition that people can end up in, be born into, driven into and go in and out.”

West has previously been open about his mental health. In 2016, the rapper canceled the rest of his Saint Pablo tour to spend a week in a Los Angeles hospital due to exhaustion

The music icon has also spoken about his bipolar diagnosis, saying he views it as something that makes him more authentic.

“When you ramp up, it expresses your personality more,” he told David Letterman on “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” in May. “You can become almost more adolescent in your expression. This is my specific experience that I’ve had over the past two years, because I’ve only been diagnosed for two years now.”

West told Forbes “being in service to Christ” has helped him overcome his obstacles.

West added many so-called “crazy” people still found success.

“And there’s a lot of people that have been called that ‘C’ word that have ended up on this cover,” he said.
