Malik Yusuf Dispels Kanye Mental Health Rumors
In a video released earlier this week, it sounded a lot like Malik was taking credit for TLOP and dry-snitching on ‘Ye’s clinically unstable mental state. But today, he’s clearing up the confusion and letting everyone know how much he respects Kanye and explaining exactly how his words were taken out of context…
I understand that some media (not all) will embellish a story in order to create sensationalism and I’m not against that. However, I am against lies, especially when they are used to intentionally hurt, demoralize, discredit character, and intentionally mislead the general public for the purpose of selling a story.
I was quoted as saying that I wrote the entire “Life of Pablo” LP and that’s completely false. When asked about my contribution to the project, I simply stated that I contributed to every song, not that I wrote every song.
For the record, Kanye West has never been medically diagnosed as being bipolar or schizophrenic. I wouldn’t change who Kanye is as a person and because people are always making disparaging comments about his behavior, I was simply stating that regardless of what anyone says (including medical professionals), is that Kanye is fine just the way he is and doesn’t need medication. He also doesn’t need to change a single thing about himself. Staying true to his character is what gives him the priceless ability to create art.
I choose to embrace Kanye for who he is, not for a watered down version of him that people would be most comfortable around.
The G.O.O.D. Music and West family is strong and tight. We build, uplift, and protect one another. At no point will we ever tear down, destroy, or attack one another.
Interesting. Well, it’s good to see that Yeezy’s homeboy isn’t flipping on him…because it definitely sounded off at the time.
