Charlamagne Tha God Explains on ‘The Late Show’ Why He Cancelled on Kanye West

Charlamagne Tha God stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night (October 23) and revealed why he decided to cancel a public event with Kanye West.

“Me and Kanye have a relationship,” the 40-year-old radio host and author explained to Stephen. “Not as close as him and Trump, but we have a relationship. Every interview that he’s done over the past couple of years, including the interview I did with him earlier this year, he’s always talking about his mental health. He’s always talking about being bipolar; being on medication. I felt like everybody was bypassing that conversation.”

Charlamagne were scheduled for a New York Times Talk to discuss their battles with mental health. The talk, which was promoting Charlamagne‘s new book, Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks on Me, was canceled shortly after Kanye‘s last visit to the White House.

“When I saw him in the White House he said he wasn’t on his meds, he got misdiagnosed, and it was sleep deprivation,” Charlamagne added. “So I was just like, ‘I think he needs to figure that out.’ What I’m trying to do, which is elevate the conversation about mental health in the black community and trying to eradicate the stigma around mental health, I just didn’t think it would be a good conversation. It’d be a distraction.”
