Kanye West and His Dad Eat Plate of Bugs to Celebrate Beating Cancer
Kanye West's father Ray West recently beat prostate cancer. In celebration of the joyous turn of events, Yeezy celebrated with his pops in a peculiar way, by apparently eating a whole plate of bugs.
As previously reported, it was revealed that Ray was diagnosed with prostate cancer back in July. 'Ye immediately went to be by his father's side while he was being treated in Los Angeles. Over the summer, he appeared to be responding well to treatment.
Now, it appears Ray has a clean bill of health. Kanye revealed the good news on Tuesday (Oct. 2) on social media. West hopped on Instagram and posted a photo of a plastic container of dead bugs. He captioned the photo, "Overcome fear. My dad and I are going to eat this plate of bugs to celebrate him beating cancer. No more fear."
Kanye and Ray have gotten closer as of recent. Kanye invited his pops out to sit in on recording sessions in Wyoming for the Ye album earlier this year. While there, Ray even tried to talk Kanye out of his support of President Trump. “He expressed that he felt that some of the policies were hurtful and that I’m a person that does not intend to hurt people, never hurts people with intention," Kanye revealed to The New York Times in June. Kanye clearly didn't take heed.
