Kanye West has been in the media in the last few months where he stated some outlandish things on outlets like TMZ. The hip hop artist and fashion designer however seemed to be calm in an interview with Breakfast Club host Charlamagne Tha God.
This led the radio personality to book a conversation about mental health since Kanye himself speaks candidly about it in public forums. Last week West visited the White House to speak with President Bush, but it entailed a lot theatrics which Charlamagne feels at this time no need to participate in another circus. He has cancelled the event as of this moment.
Normalizing being mentally healthy is a conversation that I really wanted to have with Kanye because he’s been so vocal about his own mental health struggles. Unfortunately I think to have that conversation with him right now would not be productive and a total distraction from the point of the convo which is to eradicate the stigma of mental health especially in the black community.
The conversation was originally scheduled for October 17 in New York City at The Town Hall.
