Kanye West Pays Tribute to Robin Williams
Kanye West hasn’t tweeted since he promoted his fashion collaboration with A.P.C. in July. He returns under tragic circumstances.
Robin Williams shocked the world Monday (July 11) by reportedly committing suicide at the age of 63. The terrible news has been met with an outpouring of grief and condolences from multiple communities, including hip-hop. West is the latest to pay tribute.
The rapper kept it simple with a short tweet and a picture of him with Williams holding up the diamond sign, obviously marking his time with Roc-A-Fella Records.

Despite being what many consider egotistical, West pays his respects when necessary. He denied claims that he compared himself to Nelson Mandela after his death in December and honored him on Twitter. Those claims originally stemmed from a parody site’s report.
