  • Kanye West recently landed up in hospital and needed to have an X-ray done.
  • The rapper shared on Twitter his hand and wrist injury was caused by "too much texting".
  • After getting cortison "with a wittle" local anaesthetic, the rapper seems in tip-top shape again.


Kanye West says "too much texting" landed him in hospital.

The rapper, who announced his bid to run for president on Twitter two months ago, took to the social media platform once again, this time to share he'd gotten an X-Ray.

"Too much texting bro," he wrote. "Had to get the cortisone mixed with a wittle sprinkle of lidocaine."

He previously shared the lidocaine – which is a local anaesthetic used to reduce discomfort and pain – "worked instantly".


It seems Kanye is hard at work, texting away, after his much-needed family vacation with Kim Kardashian and their kids.

The couple decided on the trip after the reality star started worrying about her husband's mental health following an emotional campaign rally and a series of erratic tweets – one even accusing Kim of trying to lock him up, comparing the situation to the movie Get Out.

But all seems well now for the power couple. While Kanye continues to work on his campaign, music and fashion line, Kim is working on Skims and a new fragrance, after announcing the family's long-running show Keeping Up with the Kardashians will end in 2021.
