Pusha T is the latest rapper to pay tribute and send well-wishes to Kanye West, following the rapper’s hospitalization for severe exhaustion.
The frequent collaborator and president of West’s GOOD Music label posted a photo on social media of the art work for West’s My Beautiful Dark Fantasy, which came out six years ago this week and featured Pusha T on two tracks. In the caption, the rapper called it “one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever,” and thanked West for “setting me up to be the solo artist I never saw myself as.”
John Legend and Chance the Rapper have also posted messages to West. Most recently, Chance sent “a special prayer to my big big brother, Kanye West.”
West remains under observation at a Los Angeles hospital after being checked in after exhibiting erratic behavior. The move followed a series of odd incidents that began when West announced that he would have voted for Donald Trump and included an onstage rant in Sacramento.
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
