Kanye West reportedly suffered memory loss following his 2016 hospitalization, according to one of the rapper’s collaborators.
Malik Yusef, who has worked with West on hits such as All Of The Lights and Promised Land, spoke to Popsugar at the Grammy Awards on Sunday when he provided an update about West’s current health. “I’ve been to his house and sat down with him for about six, seven hours, just walking through his health and recovery,” Yusef said. “His memory is coming back, which is super good. [He’s] just healing, spending time with his family.” Youngest child Saint is getting big and is walking, playing with toys, so that invigorates Kanye,” he added.

West was hospitalized on Nov. 21 last year after police responded to a report of an altercation between West and another person at the home of his personal trainer, according to a Los Angeles Times report.
The Life of Pablo rapper was reportedly experiencing “temporary psychosis” caused by dehydration and sleep deprivation. He checked out of the UCLA Medical Center after his nine day stay under the care of his wife, Kim Kardashian, and physician, Dr. Michael Farzam.
Well I hope He’s better now?
