It. Was. Everything.

The two discussed the end of the Yeezus tour ("It's kind of sad when it's over"), and why he wore a mask onstage for almost two hours ("It's freeing").

"The mask is great," Kanye said. "It's freeing. A place where you can express yourself to your audience, to everyone, without being judged, without having to live up to whatever you represent, whatever your name means or doesn't mean. To feel like a new artist again."

And he revealed that his new album would have "artistic, intellectual, kid-friendly songs" now that he's a father.

With Kanye already back in the studio, Meyers asked whether baby North and being a first-time dad will influence his work. "Yeah, totally, everything," he said. "In my approach to life, in everything, it's changed it."


But that doesn't mean there won't be cursing for artistic effect.


"It'd be like if you sat down and talked to Quentin Tarantino and was like, 'Are you gonna make G-rated movies now?' ... It's Quentin Tarantino."
