Kanye West Compares Himself To Moses And Suggests He Doesn’t Sleep Much

Kanye West again wiped his Instagram page, but returned on Sunday with a new Stories post.

The 45-year-old rapper shared a grim message in which he seemed to place himself in the same league as the biblical Moses.

He also seemed to suggest that those around him were concerned about his sleep schedule, or were not.

West’s Insta Stories post featured white text on a simple black background, similar to many of his posts over the past few weeks.

“No one asked Moses how much he slept,” he wrote.

Kanye apparently wanted his 17.2 million followers to see the correct sentiment, as he initially posted a version of the text with a typo, before deleting it and reposting a corrected version.

West has previously been open about suffering from bipolar disorder, a condition that involves major mood swings between elevated states of mania (or less severe hypomania) and depression.

In manic or hypomanic states, people can sleep significantly less than usual, and lack of sleep can also cause manic states.

In 2020, amid his doomed presidential campaign, West’s then-wife Kim Kardashian discussed his diagnosis publicly on social media, appearing to suggest it was related to his bizarre behavior at the time.

For the past few months, he’s been arguing with her and her ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson, and he’s also launched barrages against her for parenting their four children.

His latest Instagram entry comes after an ongoing feud with his business partners Gap and Adidas.

He announced plans to end his clothing partnership with Gap last week, and he has shared several critical posts about Adidas after alleging the brand stole its Yeezy designs for some of its new projects.

Kanye, who also goes by the name Ye, recently sat down and opened the new Alo Mind Full Podcast with Alo Yoga co-founder and CEO, Danny Harris.

During the 36-minute interview, the Flashing Lights singer, 45, briefly talked about his past relationship with Kim, 41, and co-parenting North, nine; Saint, six; Chicago, four; and Psalm, three.

Their divorce was filed in February 2021 last year, and the performer stated that the TV personality is currently “basically raising children 80 percent of the time.”

Midway through the podcast episode, Kanye started talking about better preparing for the future, saying “everything happens for a reason.”

The rapper added: “You know, you get to a point, and every time you get to that point, everyone wants to say, ‘Oh, it’s sanity,’ and everyone wants you to apologize a million times.”

“Because everyone wants everyone to be so doped, so controlled, that you can’t even pay for the things you give to your family,” he continued.

“The idea of ​​taking control and opinions or anything from the mother or the father takes away one’s meaning in life,” emphasizing that “your home is your original church.”

“So to this day I still give Kim advice on things that can help, because that goes to the kids. She still has to raise those kids, actually 80 percent of the time.’

The two stars began dating years back in 2012, and tied the knot at a luxurious wedding ceremony in Italy in 2014.

However, after seven years of marriage, Kim has filed for divorce from the Grammy-winning singer due to “irreconcilable differences.” In March 2022, The Kardashians star was declared legally single.

Earlier this month, the 45-year-old furiously posted screenshots of a text dispute between him and Kim over where their kids should go to school, which he simply captioned with a popcorn emoji.

Their children are currently attending private school in Los Angeles, but Kanye apparently wanted them transferred to his own newly opened Donda Academy.

In the lyrics, Kanye angered Kim, “You don’t have to say where the kids go to school,” before asking, “Why [do you] to get [a] say. “Because you’re half white?”

Kim replied by sending him a message from Kris herself, begging him to stop berating her for “stressing” her at her age.

“You don’t have that kind of thing about my black kids and where they go to school. They won’t make playboy and sex tapes,” Kanye retorted, poking at Kim’s star-studded porn video and her Playboy cover. “Tell your Clinton friends to come get me. I’m here.’

Days later, however, Kanye returned to Instagram to reveal that he and Kim had seemingly sorted things out. “Hi guys, I’m baaaaack. Sorry it took so long to post. I just had a good meeting with Kim about the schools.’

“People are ashamed of the concept of mental health. It is the lowest form of discrimination. Even a madman can call you mad. It’s an interesting weight to carry. It’s like a mark of the beast on my ego.’

“I can do something crazy in the best way, but if a random person on the street says, ‘That was crazy,’ I feel like it.”

“It hurts as a person, it hurts my feelings. Then I start talking about how I made all this money to try to compensate for people who bring me down,” the star continued. concluded.
