Pusha T wants Kanye West to know he’s there for him. The rapper and head of West’s record label G.O.O.D Music reached out to West in an Instagram post Tuesday, a day after West was reportedly hospitalized for sleep deprivation.

In his post, Pusha T noted the sixth anniversary of West’s opus, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy — “one of the greatest hip hop albums ever,” in Pusha’s words. The former member of the rap group Clipse jumpstarted his solo career when he flew out to Hawaii to work with West and a roster of other artists. Pusha wrote on eight songs, and West kept Pusha’s contributions on “So Appalled” and “Runaway,” one of West’s signature tracks.

“Thinking back on it, it really was all a set up. You were setting me up to be the solo artist I never saw myself as,” Pusha T writes. “So on the 6th anniversary of MBDTF and as the President of your label G.O.O.D. music I wanna say thanx for the endless opportunities you have brought to me. P.S. I think it’s time we all head back to Hawaii @kanyewest ::whenever you ready::.”

See Pusha’s full post below.

6 yrs ago today I was apart of one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. You invited me to Hawaii and said "pick whatever tracks you love and write to all of them." I got greedy, I stopped going to play basketball with you every morning and proceeded to write to 8 songs on your album. U kept me on 2, "Runaway" which was your platinum single, and "So Appalled" which put me on a song with you, Hov, Cyhi, Swizz, and produced by Rza. Thinking back on it, it really was all a set up. You were setting me up to be the solo artist I never saw myself as. So on the 6th anniversary of MBDTF and as the President of your label G.O.O.D. music I wanna say thanx for the endless opportunities you have brought to me. P.S. I think it's time we all head back to Hawaii @kanyewest ::whenever you ready:: #GOOD
