Kanye West’s eighth studio album, Ye, debuted Friday with an unexpected subject matter at the forefront: his bipolar disorder diagnosis.
West’s mental state has been examined by fans and the media, particularly within his current musical era.
Some of the most jaw-dropping bars are when he essentially confirms his diagnosis.
“That’s why I f—k with Ye. That’s my third person,” West, 40, rapped.
“That’s my bipolar shit, n—a what? That’s my superpower, n—a ain’t no disability. I’m a superhero! I’m a superhero!”
West further opens up about being bipolar through his album’s cover art, which features a mountain range with a highlighter green caption, reading: “I hate being bi-polar. It’s awesome.”
