Kanye West and his Sunday Service choir on Airpool Karaoke

Rapper Kanye West makes an appearance on James Corden's Airpool Karaoke with his Sunday Service choir this week.

He opens up about his marriage to Kim Kardashian, his desire to have seven children and his belief in God.

What's great about this interview is that they take breaks in between chatting to perform with the choir.

Sunday Service

James asks the artist why he decided to set up the Sunday Service choir.

Kanye explains, "When I went to the hospital a few years ago, I wrote in the hospital star a Church in Calabasas."

"It's something I had a feeling I needed to do that God put in my heart."

Religious references always seemed to make an appearance in Kanye's music.

For example, in his track Jesus Walks he says, "I need to talk to God but I'm afraid 'cause it's been too long."

James asks how he went from writing a line like that, to starting a church.

Kanye responds, "God's always had a plan for me and he always wanted to use me but I think he wanted me to suffer more and wanted people to see my suffering and see my pain..."

"So now when I talk about how Jesus saved me, more people can relate to that experience..."

Kanye was in a very dark place

He admits that before he found God, he was in a very dark place where a lot of people were praying for him.

"When I was all the way gone, at the MTV awards holding a Hennessy bottle running on stage..."

"People in my family were praying for me..."

When asked if he regrets the mistakes he made, he admits, "I have no regret and no shame."

"That's the biggest thing, me being a perfectionist, that's such a blasphemous statement to think that as a man you can perfect anything."

"God is the only thing that's perfect."

Music

Kanye is asked about the moment he knew he had made it as an artist.

He explains it was at a time when he was, "making beats for Jay Z."

"I remember when Virgin Mega Store was still around, I used to love to go [there] and just look at all the CD's..."

He recalls the time he was on an escalator, "I remember saying breathe in this moment because this will be the last moment that I can walk around in public."

The rapper explains he had just written the line, "She got a light skin friend look like Michael Jackson, got a dark skin friend look like Michael Jackson."

"I was like I will be famous after this line."

Marriage

Kanye's been married to Kim Kardashian for five years now and he admits it feels like it's been, "500 years."

"Marriage years are different than human- like you know how dog years so what is it seven years?"

He laughs, "Every marriage year is like 100 years."

"People thought it would be uncool to be married, and then I got married and people thought, "oh that looks cool.""

The presenter exclaims, "No one ever thought it would be uncool to marry Kim Kardashian."

Kanye agrees marriage is cool, "It's more than cool, more than cool as hell or something, It's heavenly, it's great, it's magnificent."

The artist goes on to share his desire to have seven children with Kim.

He says, "The richest thing you can have is as many children as possible."

Kanye says having seven children is something he and his wife have talked about.

Kim however, seems to imply in a recent episode of KUWTK that she doesn't want any more children.

"I really do feel like four is the perfect number for me."
