Rapper Kanye West’s father, Ray West, is battling cancer.

According to TMZ, Ray has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and not stomach cancer as has been widely reported.

Kanye has dropped everything to help his father upon hearing the news. Ray is currently being treated in Los Angeles and sources say he’s responding well.

The diagnosis comes just over 10 years after the death of Kanye’s mother, Donda, to whom he was very close and whose death led to his mental breakdown in 2016.
