5 Shocking Things We Learned from Kanye About Kanye in GQ

GQ magazine caught up with Kanye West just ten days after his extravagant wedding to Kim Kardashian. He shared his thoughts on married life, being a father and his forthcoming album.

Here are the five most shocking things we learned from Kanye about Kanye in his GQ cover story:


1. Kanye believes he is "no longer the most popular man in rap."

He thinks the most popular man in rap is now Drake.


2. Kanye is a blowfish, not a shark.

When asked about the TMZ video that leaked showing Kanye hitting his head on a pole while walking away from paparazzi with Kim, the rapper pointed out that he never intends to hurt anyone. He is just defending and protecting his loved ones. 


3. His forthcoming album will most likely come out in the fall of this year.


 "…I think most likely September. I go back and forth. Like, should it be September or should it be October? Should it be November?" 


4. He was going to drop the new album in summer, but pushed it back to fall so that he could spend time with his baby North.


Looks like Kanye has his priorities straight. Family first, new album second.


5. Kanye is finally happy.


He loves the stability of having a wife, a child and a family. He's happy to have someone to call mom again (Kanye's mother passed away in 2007).
