According to a close friend, the rapper has been suffering from memory loss since his hospital stay for exhaustion.
The source is Malik Yusef, a longtime friend and music collaborator of Kanye’s.
“I’ve been to his house. Sat down with him for about 6, 7 hours. Just walking through his health and recovery. His memory’s coming back. Yeah, his memory’s coming back, which is super good. And just healing. Spending time with his family. Saint [West, his child] is getting big and he’s walking and playing with toys so, you know, that invigorates him.”
Kanye started to show erratic behavior about a year ago and was ultimately hospitalized for a nine-day period of observation after the police received a call to help him. He had cancelled the tour that he has going on at the time, but following his hospital stay has begun to come back into the public light.
Malik also added that Kanye is “not working, not working, just going through processes.”
