Kanye West does his first on-camera KUWTK interview with wife Kim

Kanye West played his biggest ever role in Sunday's Keeping Up with the Kardashians – highlighting some testy exchanges with wife Kim.

'Part of the reason I even considered doing this interview is because of the movie The Incredibles – it starts off with the interviews,' he laughed of the kids' movie.

'Superheroes are giving interviews. The wife got a big butt, and I just see our life becoming more and more and more like The Incredibles until we can finally fly,' he said, with Kim joining him in laughter.

The episode, Chicago Loyalty, followed the couple as they took daughter North, five, to Kanye's hometown last September, with the singer central in many scenes as well as interviews throughout.

It gave an unusually intimate look into their marriage – with them awkwardly bickering and Kim complaining at having to mother her husband.

'Who's your favorite husband,' he at one point teased his wife, who was previously married to music producer Damon Thomas when she was just 19 and then NBA player Kris Humphries in 2011.

'You,' she smiled after an awkward pause.

Seeing her husband under fire – with Rhymefest claiming publicly that Kanye had said "f*** the youth of Chicago" – Kim had entered the feud, attacking him in return to her millions of followers.

Accused him of having 'sub par beats,' she tweeted: 'You have the audacity to use Kanye's mom name to try to shead[sic] a negative light on Kanye.'

'My problem that I have with Rhymefest is that he was using your mom to s**t talk you,' she told Kanye. 'I was being protective.'

'We got love, Babe,' Kanye told Kim, who admitted: 'You got love – I don't have all the love.'

It sparked awkward scenes between the pair, with Kim clearly frustrated at Kanye so readily willing to forgive his friend.

'You should be able to walk right in there without his permission. It's your home. He's not gonna bully me,' Kim told him during one car ride.

'He's not gonna bully me, either,' Kanye snapped testily. 'What you mean? Why you say it like that? Ain't nobody bullying me.'

Kim, clearly frustrated, asked: 'What's your rationale in being cool with him?'

'I'm not rational – I'm spiritual,' Kanye replied. 'Spirit is love. With love, they will grow.

'So whack,' Kim replied.

'I'm about forgiveness. I'm on that Buddha, yeah Ghandi, y'know,' Kanye said with a smile in a confessional.

'I see where you're coming from and I wanna be as good a person as you are,' Kim told him, just for Kanye to accuse her of wanting to 'be mad at somebody,' insisting: 'You just wanna be mad at anybody.'

'I just get really protective ... and then you just go and forgive them,' Kim complained.

She later video-chatted mom Kris Jenner, 62, to complain about her 'rocky day,' complaining of her husband: 'I'm just so annoyed because he just lets all of his friends back in that publicly talk s**t about him and it's like – I've just never dealt with close people like that.

'Those are like his brothers, you know?' she said.

'I can't babysit him and figure out who's f***ing him over today and who's he gonna forgive – I just don't have the energy for it,' she complained. 'It's so draining.

'You can have all the love in the world and wanna wish everyone well. But it is so frustrating to me to see him not care and let people walk over him.'

The cameras also captured them having special moments, including a tour of the historic Regal theater the rapper is restoring.

'I opened up for Jay-Z at the Regal,' Kanye recalled – with a flyer also showing him billed as a 'New 17 year old local' on a bill with Tupac, Notorious B.I.G. 'It's really beautiful to be able to give back to the community that helped make me who I am.'

He also showed Kim and North his childhood home, with Kim saying later: 'It's so special that North gets to see that life that Kanye lived that really made him who he is. That was really cool to see.'

After their earlier rockiness, Kanye told her husband: 'You don't have anyone else around to protect you so I feel like I have to double watch everything.

'So when it comes from a different perspective I'm not being a hater like you think I am.'

'It shows that you care,' Kanye responded. 'And I appreciate you for having that perspective.'

Kim insisted in a confessional: 'My favorite thing about Kanye is that he is a completely free thinker. It's good that he hears me out and we're having this conversation. I know that Kanye is alway gonna be Kanye and I'm never gonna try and change that. It's who I fell in love with,' she said, with the rapper, sat beside her, calling it 'a beautiful thing.'

They also finally made peace with Rhymefest, too, meeting him two months later in November.

'I'm definitely in a more calm place than I was when we were in Chicago when I felt like, "I'm gonna punch him in the face!"' Kim admitted. 'I'm way more zen now.'

She finally told Rhymefest – real
