Kanye West has addressed those questioning his mental health in new Pusha T song What Would Meek Do?
The Stronger rapper returned to Twitter in April and posted a variety of seemingly random, philosophical tweets and renewed his support for U.S. President Donald Trump. His online outbursts led people to question if he was of sound mind, and his wife Kim responded by insisting her husband wasn’t mentally ill.
Kanye has now addressed speculation about his well-being in a verse of Pusha T’s new song What Would Meek Do?, in reference to rapper Meek Mill, taken from his album Daytona, which was released on Friday, 25 May.
“Am I too complex for Complex Con? Everything that Ye say causes a new debate, See, I’m keeping out of touch, she cannot relate, This hallway’s too long, b**ch too bad, Gotta surrogate this kid, get two dads,” he raps.
“You gotta watch who you’re calling crazy, Yeezy the newest billion dollar baby, You both feel right ’til I feel like [businessman] Phil Knight, Go off for six wins like I feel Mike, Seven pill nights, you know what this feels like, No more hiding the scars I’ll show ’em like Seal, right.”
Kanye, whose third child with Kim was born via surrogate, had previously revealed to TMZ that he was on seven pills when he left the hospital following his mental breakdown in 2016
He added that doctors want him to take three pills a day now but he takes only one or two a week.
Although he didn’t mention Trump by name in the verse, he alluded to the Make America Great Again (MAGA) cap he wore on Twitter, sparking controversy.
“If you ain’t driving while black, do they stop you? Well MAGA hats let me slide like a drive-through,” he rapped.
Kanye helped produce Pusha T’s new album, and reportedly spent $85,000 to put a picture of the late Whitney Houston’s drug-strewn bathroom on the cover of Daytona.
