"I want people to be the best version of themselves," the 38-year-old artist added. "And I will be the best version of me."

Meanwhile, in the tweets immediately preceding those above, Kanye indicated that he may be leaving his days of releasing physical CDs behind him.

After The Life of Pablo's exclusive Tidal release reportedly more than doubled subscriptions to the music streaming service, Kanye wrote on Monday, "I was thinking about not making CDs ever again... Only streaming."

"The Yeezus album packaging was an open casket to CDs r.i.p," he wrote, referencing his 2013 album, which famously lacked any artwork and was released in a clear jewel case with red tape.
