On his new album, ye, Kanye West revealed that he has bipolar disorder — a brain disorder characterized by significant changes in mood and energy, from emotional highs to devastating lows.
Kanye's experiences with the disorder are woven into the lyrics of his new album and the album cover art itself.
On the track "Yikes," Kanye raps:
That's my bipolar shit, nigga, what?
That's my superpower, nigga, ain't no disability
I'm a superhero! I'm a superhero!
This line in particular is being called out by some people for glamorizing or mischaracterizing bipolar disorder.
