In a wide-ranging interview with Charlamagne that God, Kanye West talked about his 2016 breakdown that led to a hospitalization, and even looked back on it fondly, saying, "There were elements of going to the hospital ... that was fire ... it was incredible." He also discussed his sometimes-strained relationship with Jay-Z, and the fact that he was hurt by Jay and Beyonce's decision not to attend his wedding to Kim Kardashian. Kanye also spoke about not one, but two presidents: Obama and Trump.
