50 Cent Wants to Know What’s Going on With Kanye West
The week in Kanye West took a troubling turn Monday night (Nov. 21) when it was reported that the rapper was hospitalized “for his own health and safety.” The news came after West cancelled the remaining 21 shows on his Saint Pablo tour, citing exhaustion, and according to NBC News, his hospitalization came with no criminal activity attached. Many are curious as to what's going on with West, 50 Cent among them, who posted the above to Instagram, writing, "Damn what the fuck is going on."
Kanye and 50 are linked by history, Kanye's Graduation dropping the exact same day as 50's Curtis (Sept. 11, 2007). The TMZ story that 50 screengrabs is somewhat misleading, the detail about handcuffs suggesting there was something more nefarious at play. The initial report states that Kanye was acting erratically but by the time paramedics arrived, he had calmed down, his management and law enforcement convincing him hospitalization was in his best interest. He was handcuffed to a gurney, per standard protocol, and taken to UCLA Medical Center.
Some of Kanye’s industry friends have expressed their support for him on Twitter, 9th Wonder writing, “Been knowing the brother upwards of 13 years. Mental healing is a serious thing, no matter what. Stay strong Kanye West.” Check the gallery below for a sampling of fan reactions with the overriding consensus being a hope that Kanye takes care of himself moving forward. 50's own reaction is included up above.
