The 'Jesus Walks' rapper talks about moments he put his life at risk and the thrill of being a father.

Kanye West opened up about the death of his mother to Kris Jenner during his interview on her chat show this week.

The 'Gold Digger' star spoke for the first time since becoming a dad and said he truly has "something to live for".

"After I lost my mother, there were times... Well I put myself at risk,'' he explained. "I felt like sometimes I didn't have something to live for."

The rapper continued: "Now I have two really special people to live for. A whole family to live for. A whole world to live for."

Kanye also said that he has no problems with people's perception of his relationship and the damage to his credibility.

Watch Kanye West talking to Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian's mother, about his private life below:

"I had people say 'this is going to damage your credibility as an artist or a designer'," he said. "But I say 'I don't care, I love this woman'."

Kanye is also said to have shared the first picture of his daughter North with the audience on the show.

Meanwhile, the rapper will head to the MTV VMAs 2013 this weekend.
