'I had a completely new attitude on everything': Kanye West in new interview recalls an epiphany he had during 'nitrous gas trip' at the dentist!

A memorable dentist appointment left Kanye West with more than FourFiveSeconds of new perspectives.

And for the April 2015 issue of Paper magazine, the 37-year-old outspoken rapper recalled a life-changing experience in the dentist’s chair telling the publication: ‘One time I was at the dentist’s office and I was given nitrous gas and I was vibing out.’

The husband of fellow Paper cover star Kim Kardashian confessed he gained a ‘completely new attitude on everything’ thanks to some laughing gas sedation.

Although his wardrobe for the photoshoot was kept simple, his interview was far more in-depth and revealing.

‘One time I was at the dentist’s office and I was given nitrous gas and I was vibing out – 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,’ he said.

‘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.’

The father of 22-month-old child North explained his deep life inquiries were rooted in his religious beliefs.

‘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,’ he shared.

‘I came out of the gas and had a completely new attitude on everything. 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.’

His new lease on life seemingly leaned more on philanthropic efforts of giving and not looking to receive anything in return.

‘The reward is in the deed itself. 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,’ he continued.

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**king 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.’

Kanye began visiting his wife’s dentist in Los Angeles where mother-in-law Kris Jenner has taken her extended family – Khloe, Kendall and Kylie – since the early days of their Keeping Up With The Kardashians fame….read more
