Kanye West delivered a deeply personal Sunday Service over the weekend, where he opened up about his previous struggle with alcohol addiction.
The rapper has been very open about his bipolar disorder and his opioid addiction in past interviews, but Ye says that alcohol was also an issue for him as well.
Ye says his controversial moment at the VMA's was spurned on by his drinking.
"I never thought about the effect alcohol could have had on my life. I was drinking on the red carpet and then running on stage a few minutes later. And everyone around said, 'Nah, he ain't really no alcoholic.' And then you get to the point where you're drinking Grey Goose and orange juice for breakfast, thinking, 'Nah, I ain't really no alcoholic,'" he shared with his supporters.
"There was some vodka in the refrigerator at my office, and sometimes I would just go ahead and take a drink from it in the middle of the day, and I was walking toward that kitchenette area, and I stopped myself, and I said, 'Devil you're not gonna finna beat me today,'" he explained. "And it's something that we take on, day by day. Every day that I don't pick up that drink, I beat the devil."
