Kanye West talks Kim Kardashian and their daughter North West in a new interview with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show. The rapper endears himself to the public by saying that he has learned compromise with his wife and that Kardashian and their daughter have made him a “better human being”.

He told the talk show host, “I’ve definitely learned how to compromise more. Which is something you have to understand when you partner with people in business.”

A photo of himself and the reality star kissing for the first time as husband and wife flashed in the background, to which the rapper said, “And I’ve learned how to shut up more. Yeah, I think I’m a better human being because of her, and because of my daughter.”

He continued on to say, “I always have someone to think about going home to. And, you know, something for me to be brave for what I want to do for humanity, but also to be more protective of myself for my family too. Cause there are things I’ve done in the past that were considered negative, but I was really jumping in front of the tank for other people or for culture in a way, so now I always have to have that in my mind that I have a family that I have to protect, too.”

DeGeneres responded, “You are calmer, I think. You don’t seem like, angry…And I think your emotions are grounded in a way that they come out in protection and love. They’re channeled in a different way.”

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian welcomed their daughter North in June 2013 and were married in May 2014, but he has since seen the err of his ways, professionally. He said, “I think I was going through my version of my terrible twos. My daughter, she wants to express herself, and she just doesn’t have the words for it. And for me, there was so many things I wanted to do with film and clothing, and I just didn’t have the words or the resources or the backing or the perception that I could do it being that I was a rapper.”

He went on to say, “The definition of crazy is trying to do the same thing and expecting a different result. So I tried something different over the past couple of years and I actually got some really good results from it too.”

West and Kardashian are definitely trying to add to their family. The rapper added, “Yeah, we’re trying” and said that he “just wants whatever Kim wants.”
