Dame Dash: Everyone Who Thinks Kanye West Is Crazy Is NOT A Billionaire
Kanye West has found himself in the media lately after his controversial campaign rally in South Carolina, followed by a few sets of cryptic tweets from his account, which made his fans and celebrity friends worry about his mental state.
Dave Chappelle was the first celebrity to openly pay Kanye West a visit at the rapper’s Wyoming ranch.
Dame Dash took to his Instagram to let his followers know that he was checking in on Kanye West too. In the caption of the picture, he wrote,
No matter what the world may think about his friend, Dame Dash is slamming all rumors that Kanye West is “crazy.”
“People think he lost his mind just because he cried. The way he lost his mind and jumped on a jet and then jumped off the jet to come back to his 40,000-acre ranch? Yeah, I’d like to lose my mind like that.”
Adding that the follow-up to Kanye’s Jesus Is King and Jesus Is Born album is dropping soon,
“There’s definitely people around him that love him and he’s going to be all right. We are praying, we are working. People think like we are in an insane asylum [but] we got an album coming out.”
Kanye West announced the news of his forthcoming LP “Donda” dropping tomorrow (July 24) on Twitter:
West raised fears for his health Sunday at a campaign rally for his presidential bid in South Carolina, where he appeared on stage wearing a bulletproof vest, denied that Harriet Tubman freed slaves, and wept as he claimed that he and Kim nearly aborted her first pregnancy.
When Dame Dash was asked about the Kardashian families concerns for Kanye West, he says,
“I don’t give a f**k about none of that. I see him…he’s cool. I don’t give a f**k what they say. He’s a little tired but he’s happy.”
He compared the work environment to Willy Wonka, stating that the ideas are flowing.
“Why are you talking about [his mental health]? He’s in a big room with 40 different companies. Ideas development. It’s a laboratory going on over here. Just think of Willy Wonka.”
Dash added that the people who think Kanye West is crazy is not a billionaire,
“People watched the rally and think he’s crazy, but that’s how the average person thinks. Everyone that listens to him [who thinks] he’s crazy is not a billionaire. But some reason Elon Musk doesn’t think he’s crazy. I don’t think he’s crazy. Billionaires don’t think it’s crazy because he talks that billi talk. And most people don’t talk that talk. He speaks like the general to people that are generally soldiers.”
As we previously reported, the 43-year-old Yeezy designer and artist went on a Twitter rant Monday (July 20th) that left many people concerned for his well-being.
Following the series of tweets he sent out, #Prayforye trended on Twitter as his fans expressed their worries for the ‘Power’ rapper.
In his most recent Twitter rant that took place early Wednesday morning (July 22nd), Kanye West shared in a now-deleted tweet that he has been trying to divorce his wife Kim Kardashian-West. He tweeted
“I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for prison reform.”
“Meek is my man and was respectful…That’s my dog… Kim was out of line…”
Kanye West also made statements against her mom, Kris Jenner.
“Kriss and Kim put out a statement without my approval…that’s not what a wife should do white supremacy”
Kim Kardashian West made her first public statement about her husband’s public battle with his mental health. She posted the following messages to her Instagram Story:
“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because i am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health. Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor…”
As many have pointed out, Kim attributes a part of his emotional nature to his mother, Donda West‘s, 2007 death:
“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause string emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions…”
Kim ended by pleading with the media to express compassion in their reporting of recent events:
“…I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well being… With Love and Gratitude, Kim Kardashian West”
Kanye and Kim married in 2014 in Florence Italy. The couple has 4 children together, ranging in age from seven to one.
