America has had a love-hate relationship with superstar Kanye West over the years. From the loveable “College Dropout” from Chicago that produced hit after hit for who’s who of today’s artists over a decade to what media calls “Kanye rants” on fashion, his musical artistry and most recently politics, everyone has their opinion on Kanye.
But fans are now concerned Kanye West is under observation at a Los Angeles hospital following an abrupt cancellation of his concert tour on Monday.
The cancellation comes after a series of what people call “strange” behavior from the artist. Calling out Jay-Z and Beyonce’ at concerts and aking for Black people to to stop talking about racism. But is speaking passionately about a subject really all that “strange?”
A source close to West’s family told CNN that the rapper is being treated for “exhaustion” at UCLA Medical Center.
The decision to hospitalize West came after Los Angeles police responded to a
disturbance call, according to the source.
Many don’t know, but this is also the anniversary of Kanye West’s burial of his mother, Dr. Donda West. Dr. West taught at the collegiate level for over 24 years and died in November of 2007 of complications from a cosmetic procedure.
In many interviews, Kanye blamed himself for the death of his mother, his biggest supporter.
“If I had never moved to L.A. she’d be alive,” West told Q magazine in an interview. “I don’t want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears.”
Dr. West has been the inspiration behind several of his career highlights: multiple albums, singles like “Hey Mama” and “Only One,” his multidiscipline design and content company DONDA — the list goes on and on. However, the 58-year-old former chairwoman of Chicago State University’s English department died Nov. 10, 2007, the day after receiving multiple cosmetic surgeries and was buried just 10 days later on November 20th.
Despite her passing, West remains a major influence throughout her son’s recent endeavors, including the released third edition of his sold-out fashion line Yeezy Season 3 as well as his latest album, The Life of Pablo. As his biggest fan, she watched her son rise from being a wannabe music producer to one of the biggest names in the industry.
What people are saying about Kanye being exhausted or having been fatigued can be linked to depression.
Depression and chronic fatigue syndrome are two conditions that can make someone feel extremely tired, even after a good night’s rest. It’s possible to have both conditions at the same time. It’s also easy to mistake feelings of fatigue for depression and vice-versa.
