Kanye West: "I Still Had A Lot Of Pain..."
The controversial rapper talks about his hip-hop career...
Rapper Kanye Westhas touched a bit more on his return to hip-hop.
Speaking in the October issue of XXL Magazine, Yeezy recalls getting the urge to come back to the rap scene at the start of 2010:
"I spent the last year improving every element of myself as a person. By default, my raps are way better now, because I'm at a point where I don't have to come up with lines - I just think of what I'm really doing and make it rhyme.
"January first of this year, I started back in the studio. I knew for a while I was going to start that day. I still had a lot of pain, and I needed to write that pain out, and it's on my new album. But toward the end is when the Kanye West music really came.
"I think they could both carry that sound better than I could, and also being that Cudi helped design that sound. That style of music is very night-time, very streetlights. It's, like, 'streetlights glowing.' All that."
