“Normalizing being mentally healthy is a conversation that I really wanted to have with Kanye because he’s been so vocal about his own mental health struggles,” he explained in the caption. “Unfortunately I think to have that conversation with him right now would not be productive and a total distraction from the point of the convo which is to eradicate the stigma of mental health especially in the black community.”-
The conversation was originally scheduled for October 17 in New York City at The Town Hall.

In light of Kanye West’s most recent antics — which include a pro-Trump rant following his appearance on Saturday Night Live and a poorly conveyed message about abolishing the 13th amendment — Charlamagne Tha God has announced another sit-down conversation with YE.
The conversation is scheduled for October 17 at The Town Hall in New York City.
Charlamagne made the announcement on Instagram.
“Join me for a @timestalks with @kanyewest about Anxiety, Therapy, PTSD and all the other Mental Health stuff we don’t discuss enough,” he captioned the photo. “Also discussing my new book #ShookOne “Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me” moderated by @joncaramanica of the @nytimes. Buy tickets before they’re gone link in my bio!!!”
Over the past week, YE has caused a flurry of controversy. On Monday (October 1), he pushed the Yandhi album release date to November 23, which also outraged his fans. He had originally promised the album would arrive on September 29, the same night of his SNL performance.
Kanye told TMZ he was heading to Africa with his “alien YE” alter ego to finish the album.
Tickets for Charlamagne’s conversation with Kanye are available here.
