The rapper, formerly known as Kanye West, shared a video of a choir singing on Thursday, November 25, with audio of himself addressing some of his behavior over the years, including spending money like crazy, his 2020 presidential bid, wearing a Make America Great Again hat, his drinking, and temper.
Kanye Ye West posted his video on his social media account and simply wrote, “Thanksgiving Prayer.” The video began with Ye saying his name, “Hello my name is Ye and this is my super, super, super, super, super long Thanksgiving prayer. On this Thanksgiving, I’m so thankful for family, my blood family, my fans, and our haters. We love you, too.”
However, the performer noted he wrote the prayer after taking his and Kim Kardashian’s son Saint West to his first football game. “My mini-me is a mix of two of my favorite things. Me and my wife’s face. All I think about every day is how I get my family back together and how I heal the pain that I’ve caused,” he said. “I take accountability for my actions. New word alert: mix actions. The one thing that all my successes and failures have in common is me.”
Additionally, West acknowledged that his “hair-trigger temper” was heightened by his drinking, which he said he did to “take the stress away.” Meanwhile, he also referenced Kim and their family multiple times, including in regard to the manic episode he faced in 2016. “I was placed under heavy medication,” he recalled. “Since then, I went on and off the medication which left me susceptible to other episodes, which my wife and family and fans have had to endure.”
However, in a section on politics, Ye candidly said, “Good lord, my wife did not like me wearing the red hat,” a reference to the “Make America Great Again” hat worn in support of former President Donald Trump and in connection with his presidential campaigns. Being a good wife, she just wanted to protect me and our family.
Addressing his past mistakes, Kanye confessed, “I made me and our family a target by not aligning with Hollywood’s political stance, and that was hard for our marriage. Ye added in his prayer, “Then I ran for president without proper preparation and no allies on either side. I embarrassed my wife in the way that I presented information about our family during the one and, thank God, only press conference.”
