Huffington Post- Kanye West has revealed that he was diagnosed with a “mental condition” at the age of 39, and considers it a “superpower” that apparently helps fuel his creativity.

West, 40, talked about his diagnosis in an interview with radio personality Big Boy after debuting his new album, “Ye,” at a listening party in Wyoming’s Jackson Hole on Thursday.

“I had never been diagnosed until I was like 39 years old,” the rapper said, clarifying that he was “diagnosed with a mental condition.” But “like I said on the album,” he added, “it’s not a disability, it’s a superpower.”

The rapper didn’t name the condition, but he has referred to bipolar disorder on “Ye.” The artwork for the album also features a photo of mountains, with a hand-written scrawl reading: “I hate being bipolar it’s awesome.”

Kanye said he “completely redid” his album after the backlash from his inflammatory comments on TMZ last month where he stated slavery “sounds like a choice” (and that he’s a fan of Donald Trump). He said he even “took out a bar” referring to his position because it was “just too sensitive to talk about that topic.”
