Kanye West told an audience at a screening of his film/extended music video, ‘Runaway,’ that he thought about killing himself.

Now Kanye feels a responsibility to make a meaningful contribution to pop culture and art. ¬†Describing himself as a pop icon and “soldier for culture,” West, 33, told the crowd “there were times that I contemplated suicide.” However, he said, “I will not give up on life again.”

“There’s so many people that will never get the chance to have their voice heard” as loudly as his, West said Monday. “I do it for them.”

West, who didn’t say when he had considered suicide, is credited as director of the abstract 35-minute film, which features portions of nine new West songs, boldly colorful visuals and off-kilter camera angles. The mostly dialogue-free piece, set to premiere this weekend on MTV, VH1 and BET, will accompany Kanye’s upcoming album, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,’ which will be released Nov. 22.
