Kanye West believes his job is as risky as a soldier's because he puts his life on the line on stage
Kanye West claims he's putting his life at risk on tour.
The controversial rapper believes he's as brave as a soldier in a war-torn country because his 'Yeezus' tour set is so daring he could easily slip and break his neck.
Speaking on SaturdayNightOnline radio show, Kanye said: "Like, I'm just giving of my body on the stage; I'm putting my life at risk, literally! When I think about when I'm on the 'Can't Tell Me Nothing,' and 'Coldest Winter' moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped...
"You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I'm like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something."
The 'New Slaves' hitmaker thinks it's important to take risks for his family, five-month-old daughter North and his fiancé Kim Kardashian, and will continue to put his life on the line until his tour draws to a close.
He added: "Like you literally [sic] going out to do your job every day, knowing that something could happen. Something can happen to you.
"I'll explain to my daughter one day, that me and her mother, we had to fight for this position that we'll finally have."
The pressure is clearly getting to the 36-year-old star since he launched into an expletive-filled rant and storming off the stage during his recent gig at the Tampa Forum in Tampa when he wasn't happy with the venue's lighting and sound.
