The rapper covers the February issue of Interview magazine, where he talked to "12 Years A Slave" director Steve McQueen about everything from the "Bound 2" music video backlash to family life with fiance Kim Kardashian and baby North West.
He faced some heat for his super sexy music video, but Kanye explained that it was just a look into his dreams.
"I think people are afraid of dreams, and that video is one of the closest things to the way that dreams look and feel, or the way joy looks and feels, with the colors," he told the mag."I don't think most people are comfortable with their own dreams, so it's hard for them to be comfortable with other people's dreams."
Kanye may want to keep his dreams to himself for his next video!
West also showed his softer side, dishing about family life with Kim and their daughter, 7-month-old North.
"It's all brand new, how it feels to be a father," the 36-year-old said. "There are some things that I understand, certain things that I don't understand, certain things that I like to get off my chest in interviews, certain things that I want to talk about. But when we talk about love, I don't have an answer. All I can say is that I'm happy I have it."
He does seem happier than ever!
