"One time I was at the dentist's office and I was given nitrous gas and I was vibing out," the 37-year-old said. "I guess that's my version of Steve Jobs and his LSD trip -- when I had this first thought: What is the meaning of life?”

He went on: “And then I thought, To give. What's the key to happiness? Happiness. What do you want in life? When you give someone something, should they give you something in return? No. We don't have to expect to be compensated by the person we give to. Just give."

“I heard a comment -- a joke -- about the Tidal press conference being an Illuminati moment,” he said. “If there was actually an Illuminati, it would be more like the energy companies. Not celebrities that gave their life to music and who are pinpointed as decoys for people who really run the world.”

He continued: “I’m tired of people pinpointing musicians as the Illuminati. That's ridiculous. We don't run anything; we're celebrities. We're the face of brands. We have to compromise what we say in lyrics so we don't lose money on a contract…F—k all of this sensationalism. We gave you our lives. We gave you our hearts. We gave you our opinions!”

“I believe that everyone is a fashion insider, because it's illegal to be naked,” he said. “But in all seriousness, the fashion world can say, ‘Yo, you know what I mean: the inside insiders.’ I saw this article that asked, ‘Should Kanye leave fashion to the professionals?’ That question is really ignorant, in a way, because the second I sell my first T-shirt or my first shoe, doesn't that make me a professional?”
