In a 105-minute sit-down with Charlamagne Tha God and an appearance at TMZ, the rapper addressed everything from racism to his fraught relationships with two presidents.
The rapper’s very public upheaval, amid high productivity, has him facing new scrutiny.
At two concerts last week, Mr. West voiced support for President-elect Donald J. Trump; then, he canceled the rest of his shows.
Performing on hovering platforms as cameras projected views of him, Mr. West was simultaneously host and reveler at his “Saint Pablo” concert in Indianapolis.
Kim Kardashian West released snippets of a conversation between Kanye West and Ms. Swift in which he appears to get her support for lyrics that refer to her.
The rapper’s latest meant-to-shock clip features realistic likenesses of the pop singer, along with those of Donald Trump, Rihanna and Caitlyn Jenner.
The rapper will bring his ever-changing album “The Life of Pablo” to arena stages starting in August.
