[NEWS] Kanye West Says He Contemplated Suicide

Kanye told an audience of attendees who gathered to view his abstract 35-minute film, that he at one point considered taking his own life.

The screening for West's Runaway film was held in Los Angeles, California, Monday (October 18) and was said to include in various scenes the following: sheep, ballerinas, deer, rabbits, and a float depicting Michael Jackson among other things.

The film reportedly was shot with "boldly colorful visuals and off-kilter camera angles" with 9 new Kanye singles playing in the background of the scenes.

There is also narration done by rapper Nicki Minaj in the prelude of the film.

Kanye referred to himself as a "pop icon" and "soldier of culture", according to the Associated Press, right before opening up about his thoughts about how he considered suicide.
"There were times that I contemplated suicide. I will not give up on life again. There’s so many people that will never get the chance to have their voice heard. I do it for them." {Source}
