Kanye West has quite the growing support group as Chicago emcee, Chance The Rapper, rallied alongside the laundry list of artists and personalities showing their support for the exhausted GOOD Music Boss.
Chance seized a moment amidst his BBC Radio 1Xtra performance and vocalized his thoughts regarding the issue at hand. “I want to extend a very special prayer to my big brother, Kanye West I know there's a lot of weird folks out there but you already know that I'm a hundred grand. I want to just extend this prayer and this love from all the way in Britain. We might come home early to see this man. Happy Thanksgiving.”
The short speech was taken between his performance of “All We Got”, later adding “I think everybody goes through it. And I think right now, probably what he needs more than anything is his real, close friends and family around.”
West was recently admitted at a Los Angeles hospital yesterday afternoon, and while many have voiced criticism regarding his “erratic behavior”, several have commented otherwise. “I hope [we] all [ray for [Kanye West] too. He's not just an artist but he's a father, son, a husband, and above all, human,” tweeted actor Marlon Wayans.
“Been knowing the brother upwards of thirteen years. Mental healing is a serious thing, no matter what. Stay strong Kanye West,” posted Hip-hop figure 9th Wonder. Likewise, producer Andy Lassner tweeted, “The easy thing to do is make Kanye West jokes. The compassionate thing to do is hope he's ok and gets the help he needs.”
