Kanye West Details a Nitrous Trip That Changed His Life

Kanye West Details a Nitrous Trip That Changed His Life

Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West walk through JFK Airport after arriving in New York City from Los Angeles on Tuesday morning (April 21).

The 37-year-old rapper took the cover of this month’s issue of Paper magazine, where he discussed a life-changing nitrous trip at his dentist’s office.

“One time I was at the dentist’s office and I was given nitrous gas and I was vibing out,” Kanye told the magazine. “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? 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’m a Christian so I’ll speak in Christian terms: God will give you tenfold. Then I said in my mind — I’m still under the gas and getting my teeth cleaned — But I just want to be remembered. And I immediately corrected myself. I said, It doesn’t even matter if I’m remembered.”

“I came out of the gas and had a completely new attitude on everything,” Kanye said. “It’s fine to not get credit for everything; it’s almost better. For the amount of things that I really want to do, it can only work if I’m credited for about 20 percent of them. Because if I’m really credited for the amount of things that I’m going to do and what I want to do, it’s just too much. The reward is in the deed itself. The times that I’ve looked like a crazy person — when I was screaming at an interviewer or screaming from the stage — all I was screaming was, ‘Help me to help more! I’ve given all I’ve got. I’ve gone into f—ing debt. It’s all I’ve got to give. But if I had a little bit more opportunity, I could give so much more.’ That’s what I was screaming for. Help me to help more.”

    somewhere that dentist is like, really?

    To bad he didn’t just go to heaven from to much gas. That foul gas coming out of his mouth is $hit anyway.

    OMG. Saddest cliche spiritual journey story ever…”I got enlightened on the dentist’s chair.” Hilarious how stupid K&K are.

  • Mental Floss

    All I can say is that Kanye’s teeth must have been really bad to be given gas in order for them to be cleaned.
    To the experience in the dentist chair, I say, bull. Kanye is trying too hard to be something he is not and never will be. He’s too much of a narcissist to be anything else.
