These days, he's known more for his explosive outbursts than he is for his music. But he says there are reasons for that - especially when it comes to wife Kim Kardashian.
On Steve Harvey's morning radio show, he explained his perspective.
"She broke boundaries with fashion where designers weren't trying to make clothes with women with shape, and now they're all about embracing and empowering women," he explained.
"[She's] empowering women in a matriarch society where women can make money. Like when she said, 'OK my husband might have invested everything he had into fashion, everything he had into creativity for breaking boundaries, but I put the money in the account.' All of those statements, means that can't nobody ever disrespect my wife, period."
Aww, we never thought we'd say this, but that's pretty sweet, Kanye!
Still, we worry that - regardless of his intentions - his outbursts, fiercely defensive ways, and public spectacles could ultimately be Kimye's undoing.
