If you didn't hear, Kanye West has removed himself from both Instagram & Twitter this week after months of free-flowing thoughts were being spewed into the world by him. Well according to People, Kanye decided to delete his social media accounts because he realized his rants were becoming unhealthy.

“Kanye got to the point where he realized his rants were becoming unhealthy. This is why he deleted his account,” a source told PEOPLE. “When he gets into these Twitter rants, it’s very difficult for him to stop. It’s like an obsession and it actually affects his life. He knows it’s not healthy, so he wants to take things down a notch,” the source added.

However, it was all Kanye’s idea to remove himself from social media. The Chicago rapper has also been advised by his wife Kim Kardashian West to take a hiatus for the sake of their relationship and their kids. “Kim agreed it was time for him to take a social media break. She just wants him to focus on his family for a bit now,” the source says. “He can also focus better on his music and being creative when he avoids social media.”

This isn’t the first time, nor will it be the last probably, that Kanye pulls this stunt and takes time away from social media, but hopefully he can now start to work on his project with Chance The Rapper Good Ass Job, which we found out hasn't even been started on yet.
