The radio host "Breakfast Club" Charlamagne that God canceled his next TimesTalks with the controversial rapper, saying it would not be "productive". The two spoke on Wednesday in New York City about the negative stigma surrounding mental health within the black community.

"Normalizing mental health is a conversation I really wanted to have with Kanye because he has expressed his mental health problems," Charlamagne wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. Your message was attached with an event brochure that read "CANCELED".

The radio announcer continued: "Unfortunately, I think having that conversation with him at this time would not be productive and a total distraction from the point of view of eradicating the stigma of mental health, especially in the black community."

The New York Times, which sponsors the show, reflected the change of plans on its website: "Charlamagne tha God and Kanye West have canceled their appearance for a TimesTalks scheduled for October 17."

This would not have been the first time that West and Charlamagne talk about mental health.
