Kanye West: 'My number one enemy is my ego'

Kanye West's "number one enemy" is his ego.

The 'Only One' hitmaker took to microblogging site Twitter to admit he has succumbed to his own ego at times.

In a post for his 19 million followers, he wrote: "My number one enemy has been my ego... there is only one throne and that's God's ... (sic)"

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old rapper - who has two-year-old daughter North and two-month-old son Saint with his wife Kim Kardashian West - previously hit back at criticisms he had "dissed" Taylor Swift after he claimed he made her famous.

In a series of tweets, he wrote: "I did not diss Taylor Swift and I've never dissed her ... First thing is I'm an artist and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship ... 2nd thin I asked my wife for her blessings and she was cool with it ...

"3rd thing I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings ... 4th Bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word n***a

"5th thing I'm not even gone take credit for the idea... it's actually something Taylor came up with ... She was having dinner with one of our friends who's name I will keep out of this and she told him ... I can't be mad at Kanye because he made me famous! #FACTS ... (sic)"
