Kanye West is off his meds again, and people close to him believe some of the comments he made on TMZ Live were a result of that. Kanye admitted he was shunning doctors who ordered him to take 3 pills a day, saying it seriously messed with his mind in a big way and has whittled it down to 1 or 2 a week. According to TMZ, Kanye has talked about slavery before as a metaphor, and did not properly articulate himself when he said slavery was a choice. In fact, Kanye tweeted, “the reason why I brought up the 400 years point is because we can’t be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years. We need free thought now. Even the statement was an example of free thought … It was just an idea.”
It seems that his meds have been problematic, and doctors aren’t even sure what works and what doesn’t. This has led to Kanye controlling his own destiny by self-regulating…for better or for worse.
