The rapper and political activist, Charlamagne Tha God has been extremely open about his own struggles with anxiety, stress, and fear in his recently published book, “Shook One”.
A planned discussion on mental health issues with the rapper and pro-Trump supporter Kanye West was planned as a highlight of the upcoming series of “TimesTalk” events, but Charlamagne Tha God has now canceled the planned New York event.
The event was planned for as an extension of “The Breakfast Club” interview in which Kanye West opened up about his struggles with mental health issues to Charlamagne Tha God.
One of the main reasons for the planned event was to heighten awareness among members of the African-American community about the issue of mental health in young black males. The New York Times event was planned for October 17, but this has now been canceled as the growing series of issues surrounding the rapper husband of reality TV star, Kim Kardashian. During the interview between Charlamagne Tha God expressed his happiness at the openness of Kanye West regarding his reported misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder.
However, the activist is feeling unhappy about the direction Kanye West’s behavior is heading but has not yet used this as the main reason why the interview has been canceled. The rapper recently attended a lunch in the Oval Office with president Donald Trump which descended into a media circus with pro football legend, Jim Brown also in attendance.

Some of those involved with the event have expressed the view the statements regarding throwing away his medications may have led to the decision to cancel the event.
