The new single Touch The Sky by Kanye West features a mini-nervous breakdown, which he suffered when he was a struggling musician.
According to Contactmusic.com, West raps about how he felt when his music was not selling. He said: "I had one nervous breakdown I talk about on Touch The Sky, when I bursted out crying. My girlfriend and I were in a room together, listening to the first Lil' Kim CD, Hard Core. I would listen to Lil' Kim, then listen to my beat - another Lil' Kim song, then my beat."
He added: "It sounded like the same calibre to me, but I couldn't sell a f**king beat. And I just stood next to that stereo and busted out crying and shaking. I didn't have control of my emotions. It didn't make any sense. I was living in New York, 600 miles away from home, and had $300 in my bank account."
