Kanye held nothing back on his newly released track, “I Thought About Killing You,” on which he raps, “Today I seriously thought about killing you / I contemplated, premeditated murder / And I think about killing myself, and I love myself way more than I love you, so."
But while he shocked fans when he opened up about his mental health struggles on the cover of Ye, which includes the words “I hate being bipolar, it’s awesome,” he told Rolling Stone that he hasn’t allowed the diagnosis to present a challenge for him: “That's why I said on the album, 'it's not a disability; it's a superpower.'"
Still, he extended his condolences to Kate’s family in the wake of her death, tweeting “all the love to her family” along with a magazine spread documenting her longtime “depression battle.”

As just one of millions who suffer from mental illness across the world, Kanye taking the time out to acknowledge Kate seemed very important to him, especially since he recently told Big Boy TV, “I think everybody got something.”
