Twista is one of the many artists coming forward with well-wishes for Kanye West after the rapper was reportedly hospitalized in Los Angeles Monday.

In a personal note shared with FakeShoreDrivethe longtime collaborator and friend of West sent prayers to the fellow Chicago rapper while also asking everyone else to to do the same. "I woke up this morning and I felt the need to prayer for those who might not have a voice to pray," he wrote before describing the music business as "a very stressful business to be in."

"I pray that Kanye finds that one thing that money and fame can't buy," Twista added before closing the note off by telling Kanye that their shared hometown of Chicago "loves you bro."

West was hospitalized Monday evening after his personal physician reportedly called 911 claiming that West was suffering "from temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration," according to TMZ. The police reports obtained by TMZ also stated the doctor told police he had placed Kanye on a 5150 psychiatric hold after West attempted to assault a staff member at the gym.

Friends of West and members of the hip-hop community have since come out voicing their support for West. Chance the Rapper sent a "special prayer to my big brother Kanye West" during his performance of "All We Got" while John Legend told CBS Tuesday, "Hopefully he is getting some rest and some time to figure things out."
