Rapper Kanye West has been candid about his mental health issues, admitting that he has felt “suicidal” in the past.

The 44-year-old rap star has been candid about his mental health issues in his new Netflix documentary, “Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy,” in which he reveals that he told Kid Cudi about his mental health and substance abuse issues during a 2018 recording session, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Kanye shared: “Even me, when I already had the house and the wife and the kids and the plaques… (I) would still have times when I felt suicidal, would still have moments where I’m addicted to Percocets and don I don’t even realize it, you know what I mean?”

Kanye revealed in 2018 that he had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, while he was also hospitalized in 2016 with exhaustion and sleep deprivation.

Clarence “Coodie” Simmons – the director of the new three-part documentary – said it was “hard” to see Kanye go through his struggles so openly.

Coodie said: “It was hard seeing Kanye on TV knowing he was having mental health issues.

“They called him crazy, but to me it looked like he was screaming for help. In the past, Kanye may have pissed people off, but for the first time, it felt like he really lost people.”

Meanwhile, Kanye recently apologized for “harassing” Kim on social media.

The ‘Stronger’ hitmaker deleted all of his recent posts about his estranged wife, saying he was “learning in real time”.

Alongside a photo of himself on stage, Kanye wrote: “I’ve learned that using capital letters makes people feel like I’m yelling at them.

“I’m working on my communication. I can benefit from a team of creative professionals, organizers, mobilizers and community leaders. Thank you everyone for supporting me.”
