With Kanye West currently hospitalized, his protege Chance The Rapper offered a special message to his close collaborator. After stopping by BBC Radio 1 to perform a slew of cuts with The Social Experiment, the Chicago rapper took a quick timeout to send West a special prayer right before Thanksgiving.

"I want to extend a special prayer to my big brother Kanye West," said Chance during his performance of "All We Got." "I know there's a lot of weird folks out there but you already know that I'm a hundred grand. I want to just extend this prayer and this love from all the way in Britain. We might come home early to see this. Happy Thanksgiving."

On Monday night (Nov. 25), audio that TMZ obtained of a 911 call surfaced, revealing that 'Ye was suffering from "temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration."

Earlier in the day, he canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour after going on bizarre rants during his last two shows, delving into his support for Trump to his seemingly sour relationship with Jay Z

Earlier this year, Chance The Rapper and West teamed on several tracks including The Life of Pablo standout "Ultralight Beam" and the Coloring Book track "All We Got." Chance's manager, Pat, also extended his support to West on Twitter.
