The 'Bound 2' rapper - who has 21-month-old daughter North with his wife Kim Kardashian West - used an analogy of a marble table to explain how he felt as though he was full of "douchebaggery" in the past.

He said: "I feel like now I have an amazing wife, a super-smart child and the opportunity to create in two major fields. Before I had those outlets, my ego was all I had.

"I have this table in my new house. They put this table in without asking. It was some weird nouveau riche marble table, and I hated it. But it was literally so heavy that it took a crane to move it. We would try to set up different things around it, but it never really worked.

"I realised that table was my ego. No matter what you put around it, under it, no matter who photographed it, the douchebaggery would always come through."

One thing that has never changed for the 37-year-old star, though, is his desire to have his own fashion brand.

He added to the New York Times newspaper's T magazine: "I dreamed, since I was a little kid, of having my own store where I could curate every shoe, sweatshirt and colour.

"I have sketches of it. I cried over the idea of having my own store."
