While speaking with Joe Rogan, the 43-year-old Kanye West explained what was going on in his head when he cried on-stage.

"People say this clip of me crying, and some people didn't know what I was crying about. But I was crying about that there was a possible chance...that we -- Kim and I -- didn't make the family that we have today. That's my most family-friendly way to word that."

Kanye added that the idea of aborting a child just tore him up and said that he was "a part of a culture that promotes this kind of thing."

"I almost killed my daughter...my girlfriend called me screaming, crying. I'm a rapper. And she said I'm pregnant. She was crying," Kanye said.
