"Kanye invited him to come, and it's a big deal for him to be able to come," she said. "I'm excited. For him to have this, you know, this is a milestone for him to be able to travel. So, baby steps. But this is a big one. This is a huge step for him."

"It's a really short [trip]," she added, explaining that Lamar is "ready" to handle the outing. "I think it's a great thing for him to be with the family, and come out and do something that we're all a part of, and he really wanted to support Kanye. He really wanted to be here for him, because Kanye was very instrumental in part of his recovery."

"Kanye would go to the hospital and play him music, and that's what he really, really responded to," she continued. "He was amazing. Lamar started rapping again before he could talk. Isn't that wild?"

Another big part of his recovery, of course, was Khloe.

"She's a very realistic girl," Kris said. "So, when he was going through some dark times, Khloe sort of braced herself, you know? But she's the strongest girl in the world. So, I said to her, 'I'm now changing my medical directive because of you and the way you were with Lamar.' If anything ever happens to me, I want Khloe there! Because she's amazing. OK, Kourtney, you're out. Khloe's in!"
