KANYE WEST was admitted to UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles earlier this week after suffering from ”exhaustion” and ”sleep deprivation”.

It came after days of erratic and angry behaviour on stage, which ultimately forced him to cancel the remaining 21 dates on his Saint Pablo tour.

Straight Outta Compton actor O’Shea Jackson Jr, who played his father, rapper Ice Cube in the hit biographical film depicting the career of gangsta rap group N.W.A, penned this letter to Kanye:

‘I woke up this morning with Kanye on my mind. Usually that’s the start of a dope day. But I felt like I should say something to him. Which, believe it or not, is not really possible for me. So I drew this on my iPad. It doesn’t mean “I Miss The Old Kanye”. I don’t even know what that means. We ask artists to grow by doing the same thing over and over? Nah. We love artists that break the mold. That change the game. Whether its production or style, Ye has always gone against the grain. But that s**t is what makes the cool Cool. It’s what makes dope , DOPE. But the world, just like all of us, isn’t always ready for change. The fear of the unknown intimidates man. That’s why we praise the ones who show no fear. Sin Miedo. Kanye you have plans. Ideas. Concepts. That the masses just aren’t ready for. And so what!? My mother says, “never feed a baby steak.” If you feed people things they’re not ready for, they will be regurgitated and never accepted. So stop telling them s**t! Show them! If they not ready to hear it, make them see! Because that’s what you’ve always done. You can change the world and you know it. But brotha you must always remember. “The revolution will not be televised.” We need to be shaken up a bit. We need to be shown the world outside of the box. We need GOOD music. Shiiiiet ….We need Ye to be Ye! So from us real fans, WAKE UP MR. WEST!!!!!’
