Kanye West’s Dad Allegedly Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer

Kanye West

Kanye West’s father, Ray West, has reportedly been diagnosed with prostate cancer and is being treated in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.

On July 29, the tabloid news site debunked rumors that Ray West was battling stomach cancer. Sources close to the rap star’s father claim he is responding well to treatment.

Kanye is said to have dropped everything to help his dad since learning of the diagnosis. He and his wife, Kim Kardashian, and their children live in a Calabasas home just an hour outside of Los Angeles. In June, Ray West was seen sitting next to his son during the entertainer’s birthday celebration.

Although Kanye’s career is often credited to the influence of his late mother, Donda West, the rapper has spoken about his dad’s career. During a 2013 interview with Zane Lowe, he spoke about his father being a Black Panther and photojournalist.

“My father was a Black Panther. My father was a journalist, a paparazzi, a photojournalist. He was a paparazzi. We had a dark room in our house. Like seven years ago, he lived in a homeless shelter,” Ye told Lowe. “Not because he was homeless, because he wanted to help the ex-drug addicts. He wanted to get that close. He started a foundation called Good Water, and moved to the Dominican Republic to help right there, to help with the prostitution, to help with the extortion, to help right there; he stays in the Dominican Republic right now.”

Donda West passed away following complications with cosmetic surgery nearly 11 years to the news of Ray West’s cancer diagnosis.

The “Only One” rapper recently tweeted about what can fuel suicidal thoughts and the importance of love in society.
