Kanye West is set to discuss his battle with bipolar disorder in an episode of David Letterman’s talk show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.”

The 41-year-old rapper will appear on season two the Netflix show — which launches on May 31 — where he will talk about his mental health, especially his struggle with bipolar, which he says leaves him feeling “erratic.”

In a trailer for the upcoming season, Letterman can be seen talking to Kanye after visiting his fashion warehouse.

West tells the television icon in the clip: “When you’re bipolar you have the potential to ramp up and it can take you to a point where you start acting erratic — as TMZ would put it.”

The “Heartless” rapper’s episode will launch on May 31 at the same time as the other four episodes in the new season, which feature the likes of Tiffany Haddish, Ellen Degeneres, Lewis Hamilton and Melinda Gates.

Meanwhile, his wife Kim Kardashian West — with whom he has North (5), Saint (3), Chicago (14 months), and a newborn son whose name is not yet known — recently revealed West doesn’t take the medication he was prescribed to help manage his bipolar, because it “changes who he is.”
