Warryn Campbell is happy to hear Kanye West is finally talking about his bi-polar disorder. After years of collaborating with Kanye on his albums Graduation and Late Registration amongst other projects, Campbell was not surprised that West was so forthright about his mental health issues.
“I commend him for doing that and for consistently always putting out great music,”Campbell told HipHollywood while promoting his new TV One reality series We’re The Campbell’s. “When the album [Ye] dropped I was like my man is back, my man is back.”
“He is one of those guys he will tell on himself, he will control his narrative,” he added of West opening talking about his bi-polar diagnosis. “That’s his power, if you let someone else tell your story you are powerless.”
But what Campbell was surprised about was West’s dealings with Donald Trump – wearing a MAGA hat and saying things like, “slavery was a choice” while on TMZ.
“He’s one of the most militant people I know,” said Campbell, “So it was shocking.”
That was until Campbell realized Ye was actually doing it all for publicity for the new album, or at least that’s what he believes.
“When he dropped an album, I didn’t know he was going to drop the album, but it made the other stuff he was doing make sense. He’s just doing exactly what Donald Trump did [when he was running for President] to get attention on him because he has the album coming out” he said.
