I saw this picture earlier and thought about how powerful it is. Someone captioned it "mental slavery" but I see this as something far deeper.
Kanye has been the discussion of the group chat a couple of times now. Is it mental health? Is he just a dick?
Being mentally enslaved means you're stuck in a mentality that holds you back and resistant to change or leading down a new path.
Ye has pushed the boundaries, period. As an artist, as a designer, as a producer and with the trauma he has been through losing a parent too soon, I imagine being a husband and father hasn't been easy either.
Mental illnesses do cause us to feel trapped. In our own thoughts, in dark places that exist only in our minds and sometimes feeling alone and wary of those around you. I can't imagine navigating my own mental health with the whole world watching and scrutinising at every opportunity.
I'm a huge fan of Ye, his creative genius and as a visionary, he is one of the greats of my generation. I'm here for the music. Not to pick him apart. I just hope the support and care he needs around him is genuine 👑
