Warren went to Instagram Thursday (December 1) and likened Kanye’s recent mental pain to the loss of his own mother.

“Man, keep your head up, Kanye West. I been through the same thing, man, I lost my moms, so, I know what it’ll do to you. You just gotta stay strong – for everybody out there who went through that. It’s no joke with added on pressure from all this other crazy industry stuff. You just gotta keep your head up. Keep your head up, Kanye, that’s real sh*t.”


Yesterday (November 30), reports surfaced about Kanye getting checked out of a California hospital.

TMZ has confirmed Kanye is at home with Kim Kardashian and their kids. We’re told he left the hospital under the care of Kim, and his personal physician, Dr. Michael Farzam … who called 911 the day Kanye was admitted. Our sources say Kanye is not out of the woods … he needs ongoing psychological and medical treatment. (TMZ)

Earlier reports claimed Ye wanted to make music from his hospital bed.

A West source told PEOPLE that it remains unclear when the rapper will be able to return home, but claimed that a recent update was a positive one. “They tell me he’s doing good,” the source said, adding that “he’s been really eager to make music and to work even from the hospital bed.” In regard to questions about the rapper’s mental state, the second source said that West’s mental health is “very private,” and “between him and his family.” (People)

Recently rap star Wiz Khalifa offered up his solution for Ye’s speedy recovery.

“Nah man, nothing like that – he needs to smoke some weed,” Wiz told paparazzi when asked for his opinion on Kanye West. “Smoke some KK, make your day day all better. [laughs] I’ma send him some to the mental institution.” (TMZ)
