Mental illness should never be taken lightly. 2 of my childhood friends committed suicide by self inflicted gun shot wounds. After the tragic loss of people close to me I realize that depression and sparatic behavior is something some people can't seem to shake. I believe very artistic people battle with mental illness more because they don't identify with the rest of the world. Not to mention Kanye West loss his mother and has not seem to recover from her passing. Before being admitted to the hospital Kanye canceled the remaining 21 dates of the Saint Pablo tour. Kanye is in my prayers.
