Pusha T sent West words of encouragement, as well as longtime collaborator Twista.
“I pray for my man Kanye, and i ask everyone to do the same too, wanting help doesn’t show weakness, it actually shows character and it lets people know you too are you human and you too have feelings too,” Twista wrote in a heartfelt open letter.
6 yrs ago today I was apart of one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. You invited me to Hawaii and said "pick whatever tracks you love and write to all of them." I got greedy, I stopped going to play basketball with you every morning and proceeded to write to 8 songs on your album. U kept me on 2, "Runaway" which was your platinum single, and "So Appalled" which put me on a song with you, Hov, Cyhi, Swizz, and produced by Rza. Thinking back on it, it really was all a set up. You were setting me up to be the solo artist I never saw myself as. So on the 6th anniversary of MBDTF and as the President of your label G.O.O.D. music I wanna say thanx for the endless opportunities you have brought to me. P.S. I think it's time we all head back to Hawaii @kanyewest ::whenever you ready:: #GOOD
Stylist Tameka Foster has spoken out in defense of West, reminding those who’ve bashed the artist that ‘Ye is currently under tons of stress, with November being the anniversary of his mother’s death.
“If you are bashing Kanye please don’t tag me. GRIEF is real people. This man was VERY close to his mother. I knew her and was in their presence several times… this is the Anniversary month of her passing,” Foster wrote. “Everyone is wired differently. The smallest thing can be a trigger. Don’t judge what you don’t understand.”
