Damon Dash is currently spending time with his friend Kanye West at the Wyoming ranch and has denied that Kanye is “crazy.” He also says he doesn’t “give a f***” if his wife, Kim Kardashian West and her family disagree.
According to the Daily Mail, Kanye and Dash were spotted together at the bank and Walmart.
“People think he lost his mind just because he cried. The way he lost his mind and jumped on a jet and then jumped off the jet to come back to his 40,000-acre ranch? Yeah, I’d like to lose my mind like that,” Dash said.
“There’s definitely people around him that love him, and he’s going to be all right. We are praying; we are working. People think like we are in an insane asylum [but] we got an album coming out.”
After a Sunday rally for Kanye’s presidential bid in South Carolina, there were many speculations regarding his mental health after he appeared onstage wearing a bulletproof vest, attacked the legacy of Harriet Tubman, and then wept as he claimed that he and Kim nearly aborted their daughter North.
A series of Kanye tweets also made rounds on social media, including one that claimed Kim and her mother, Kris Jenner, tried to get him “locked up.”
On Wednesday, Kim addressed Kanye’s recent behavior and asked for “compassion” as he battles his “painful” bipolar disorder.
However, when asked by Page 6 about the Kardashian family’s concerns, Dash said, “I don’t give a f–k about none of that. I see him — he’s cool. I don’t give a f–k what they say. He’s a little tired, but he’s happy.” He also claimed West is being “productive” and having fun.
“Why are you talking about [his mental health]? He’s in a big room with 40 different companies. Ideas development. It’s a laboratory going on over here. Just think of Willy Wonka,” he said.
“People watched the rally and think he’s crazy, but that’s how the average person thinks. Everyone that listens to him [who thinks] he’s crazy is not a billionaire. But some reason Elon Musk doesn’t think he’s crazy. I don’t think he’s crazy. Billionaires don’t think it’s crazy because he talks that billi talk. And most people don’t talk that talk. He speaks like the general to people that are generally soldiers,” Dash added.
