Many celebs have spoken out about Kanye West since his recent health scare that landed him in the hospital.

O’shea Jackson Jr. is the latest star to speak out about the iconic rapper and express his understanding and admiration for him. The Straight Outta Compton actor wrote, “I woke up this morning with Kanye on my mind. Usually that’s the start of a dope day. But I felt like I should say something to him. Which, believe it or not, is not really possible for me. So I drew this on my iPad. It doesn’t mean “I Miss The Old Kanye”. I don’t even know what that means. We ask artists to grow by doing the same thing over and over? Nah. We love artists that break the mold. That change the game.”

I woke up this morning with Kanye on my mind. Usually that's the start of a dope day. But I felt like I should say something to him. Which, believe it or not, is not really possible for me. So I drew this on my iPad. It doesn't mean "I Miss The Old Kanye". I don't even know what that means. We ask artists to grow by doing the same thing over and over? Nah. We love artists that break the mold. That change the game. Whether its production or style, Ye has always gone against the grain. But that shit is what makes the cool Cool. It's what makes dope , DOPE. But the world, just like all of us, isn't always ready for change. The fear of the unknown intimidates man. That's why we praise the ones who show no fear. Sin Miedo. Kanye you have plans. Ideas. Concepts. That the masses just aren't ready for. And so what!? My mother says, "never feed a baby steak." If you feed people things they're not ready for, they will be regurgitated and never accepted. So stop telling them shit! Show them! If they not ready to hear it, make them see! Because that's what you've always done. You can change the world and you know it. But brotha you must always remember. "The revolution will not be televised." We need to be shaken up a bit. We need to be shown the world outside of the box. We need GOOD music. Shiiiiet ….We need Ye to be Ye! So from us real fans, WAKE UP MR. WEST!!!!! 🎓🐻🕶🙏🏽

He continued on with a little advice for one of his favorite rappers, “My mother says, “never feed a baby steak.” If you feed people things they’re not ready for, they will be regurgitated and never accepted. So stop telling them shit! Show them! If they not ready to hear it, make them see! Because that’s what you’ve always done. You can change the world and you know it. But brotha you must always remember. “The revolution will not be televised.” We need to be shaken up a bit. We need to be shown the world outside of the box.”

O’shea ended the post pleading for Kanye to do what he does best, get back to the music. He wrote, “We need GOOD music. Shiiiiet ….We need Ye to be Ye! So from us real fans, WAKE UP MR. WEST!!!!!”

We’re sure the Yeezus-hive agrees.
