"I've definitely learned how to compromise more," the Grammy winner told Ellen DeGeneres on her show Wednesday. "I've learned how to shut up more. ... I think I'm a better human being because of her and because of my daughter."
The A-list couple tied the knot in May and are already parents to North West, who appears in West's new video for "Only One," which just premiered on his website.
"I have always someone to think about going home to," Kanye said. "There's things I've done in the past that were considered negative, but I was really jumping in front of the tank for other people or for culture in a way. Now, I always have to have that in my mind that I have a family I have to protect, too."
DeGeneres added that West seemed "calmer" and that his emotions were channeled in a more grounded way. West responded that earlier, he was going through his version of "my terrible twos," referencing his past, and relating to his little two-year-old at home.
"My daughter, she just wants to express herself, but she just doesn't have the words for it," he said. "For me, there's so many things I want to do with film, with clothing, and I just didn't have the words."
He added that "There's no amount of money that someone can give you to make you not be creative ... a lot of times people try to block you, control your creativity with money."
West said with his new Adidas deal, he's got more control over his clothing line and that it's like "a little bit of oxygen." Unlike his past, West explains, "You guys were seeing someone suffocated by perception."
As for more kids, West said, "Yeah, we're trying ... I just want whatever Kim wants." The rapper also revealed that he's still working on a title for his next album. "We're still trying to find the vibe," explained 'Ye. " this transition from what I felt when I did Yeezus to what I feel now and we’re just creating, so we haven’t found it yet."
