Rucuss staffFebruary 13, 2016

Kanye West has found himself without a writer.

Chicago rapper and songwriter Rhymefest, who has co-written with West tweeted that he stopped working with Kim Kardashian’s husband last month. He claims he broke ties because West needs counseling.

Rhymefest, whose real name is Che Smith, has helped West write songs as “Jesus Walks” and “New Slaves.”

“My brother needs help, in the form of counseling. Spiritual & mental. He should step away from the public & yesmen & heal,” Rhymefest wrote in a series of tweets on Feb. 12.

Rhymefest also tweeted that West’s “mind” and “spirit” aren’t right, but didn’t elaborate any further. “I love my brother. I pray for his health not our entertainment”

West is in the midst of releasing his latest album, Life of Pablo. The set was scheduled for release Friday, but got delayed because Chance the Rapper was finishing vocals on the song “Waves.”
