Kanye West Has An Epic Rant On Ellen

Kanye has delivered the wildest talk show rant we've seen since Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah's couch.

This isn't Kanye's first tirade this year. Far from, actually.

However, his latest episode on The Ellen Degeneres Show was quite alarming, to say the least.

About a minute and a half into the interview he started on a 7-minute long tangent. 

"I feel that if I had more resources, I could help more people. I have ideas that can make the human race existence within our 100 years better," he said when asked about the time he Tweeted Mark Zuckerberg for a hand out.

"Whatever perception you have of me, starting with the truth. Starting with what everyone's thinking. Start there. Put some dope shit with it."

If you're wondering if that makes any sense - it doesn't. But wait, there's more...

He moved on to talk about his father living in homeless shelters and his mother being the first black female chair of the English department at Chicago State University, concluding: 

"I was raised to do something, to make a difference."

We're not sure if that is true, but let's let Kanye explain...

"We're one race. Human race. One civilization. We're a blip in the existence of the universe. And we're constantly trying to pull each other down, not doing things to help each other. That's my point."

While that part actually made a really important point, it quickly descended into absurdity again with mentions of Pablo Picasso, Barack Obama, Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Jackson:

"There was a time when Michael Jackson couldn't get his video on MTV because he was considered to be 'urban'. The Michael Jackson. So I literally have to be the Michael Jackson of apparel in order to break open the doors for everyone that will come after I'm gone. After I'm dead. After they call me 'Wacko Kanye.'"

In all seriousness, we have to wonder if Kanye maybe needs a bit more help than we're giving him.
