Charlamagne tha God and Kanye West will have a conversation about the power of overcoming fears and anxiety during The New York Times' TimesTalks on Oct. 17 at The Town Hall. The NYT bestselling author and radio personality from "The Breakfast Club" will participate in the talk about how anxiety has driven him to success along with the rapper/designer/entrepreneur. 

Earlier this year, West revealed in an interview with Charlamagne that his mental breakdowns were a result of "fear, stress, and control," and after dealing with those things, he is "in a stronger place than I ever was." 

The chat will be moderated by NYT pop music critic, Jon Caramanica and the event will also be live streamed on, the TimesTalks YouTube channel, as well as The New York Times Facebook page starting at 7 p.m. EST.
