Kanye West lost the lyrics for his latest LP ‘The Life of Pablo’ when his two-year-old daughter, North West, dropped his phone on which they were stored down the toilet.
The 38-year-old rapper stored all his words for the 19-track album on his Apple iPhone but had to start writing them again after his two-year-old daughter – whom he was wife Kim Kardashian West – decided it would be fun to drop it in the water of the toilet.
Kim, 35, shared the amusing anecdote of her husband’s misfortune with her sister Khloé Kardashian on the final episode of her chat show ‘Kocktails with Khloé’.
The 35-year-old beauty – who has also has four-month-old son Saint with Kanye – said: “Kanye had every single rap in his iPhone before he started really working on Pablo and then North flushed it down the toilet and they could not be retrieved. We sent it to like four places.”
And the ‘All Day’ hitmaker added: “And no Apple Genius was genius enough.”
Kanye revealed he gets his extreme self-confidence from his family and his refusal to conform to other people’s expectations of him.
Speaking on the show, he said: “I think it was just my grandfather, mostly. But my parents also. Just like not having a slave mentality, because so many people what holds them back is they don’t see themselves in a higher position.”
