Chance The Rapper Prays for Kanye West, Covers Drake’s “Feel No Ways”
Chance The Rapper recently stopped by BBC Radio 1Xtra to chat with host Trevor Nelson, his Magnificent Coloring World Tour embarking on its UK leg. Chance performed his Coloring Book cut "All We Got" as well as a cover of Drake's "Feel No Ways," using the former of the two as an opportunity to extend well-wishes to Kanye West, who was hospitalized Monday night (Nov. 21).
“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,” he said. “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.”
West was taken to a Los Angeles area hospital “for his own health and safety,” his management and law enforcement convincing him it was in his best interest. Details surrounding the hospitalization remain fuzzy, a recent report stating that police were called to come get Kanye for “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration.”
Chance was asked about what's going on with Kanye, though he didn't offer any specifics. “I think everybody goes through it," he said. "And I think right now, probably what he needs more than anything is his real, close friends and family around.”
Prior to being hospitalized, Kanye had canceled the 21 remaining dates on his Saint Pablo tour, citing exhaustion and a desire to spend more time with his family. Listen to Chance's remarks courtesy of the BBC, his Kanye quotes starting around the 2 hour 16 minute mark.
