Kanye West’s longtime songwriting collaborator Rhymefest, who has worked on songs including “Jesus Walks” and “New Slaves,” tweeted on Friday that he stopped working with West last month and that the rapper needs counseling.

Rhymefest, who’s real name is Che Smith, replied to a comment that he should be writing West’s Twitter posts as well as his song, saying, “my brother needs help, in the form of counseling. Spiritual & mental. He should step away from the public & yesmen & heal.”
