You can say a lot of things about Kanye West, but you could never, not even for a minute, say he isn't incredibly passionate about everything he lays his hands on. Yesterday he sat down with Radio 1 host Zane Lowe for a follow-up to their widely-discussed 2013 interview, and to say things got emotional would be an understatement.

At about 26 minutes in, the two discuss the late British design professor Louise Wilson, who West said was a huge inspiration for him. He begins to say “I didn’t know we were going to lose her, and she told me, and she said, ‘You know, thank you for the times we came to performances and this is like really meant a lot to me, you know she would...” and breaks down crying before Zane asks if he needs to take a minute, and they cut to commercial.

They also talked about whether or not he wants more children, and it's apparent that he puts the same amount of energy into that as he does everything else, as he told Lowe “Oh, I’m practicing really hard, I try as many times a day as I can. Nori this one is for you…you need a sibling!”. The Twittersphere was ablaze when he discussed his love for Drake, saying “He’s delivering a level of product to humanity that is of a high quality” which is one hell of a compliment when it comes from Yeezus himself. The entire interview is available to watch below, and it offers a really great look into the mind of one of music's most creative - and often times, most ridiculed - artists.

Update: He also took to twitter to apologise to Beck and Bruno Mars:
