London: Rapper Kanye West says he edits his songs so he doesn`t offend people.

The 35-year-old `Stronger` hitmaker said that he occasionally reviews his lyrics to ensure there is no unnecessary swearing as he prefers to use expletives as a tool rather than just to shock, reported Contactmusic.

"I will admit that I sometimes go back an omit cursing from my records. I like to use profanity as a tool and not a crutch," West said.

West`s admission comes after a fan questioned him on the use of the word "bitch".

The singer, who has penned a track called `Perfect Bitch` about his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, said that his musings were not to make a definitive decision on language but he wanted to think out loud with his fans.

"I`m not tweeting to say what we need and what we don`t. I just wanted to think out loud with you guys today," he said.
