Kanye West tweets about receiving steroid injections for ‘too much texting’

Kanye West needs to cut down on his screen time.

The “Jesus Is Lord” rapper, 43, tweeted from the hospital Tuesday, where he was receiving injections of “cortisone mixed with a wittle sprinkle of lidocaine.”

“Too much texting bro,” he prefaced the rundown of his treatment with.

“Lidocaine worked instantly,” West wrote in a follow-up, which contained a video of the doctor injecting him. “The dexamethasone takes 24 to 48 hours,” he added, before capping things with “Modern medicine.”

West’s irony-free phone-based updates on receiving medical treatment for phone overuse follow a busy start to the month. His sit-down with Nick Cannon, published last week, saw him hold forth on the high cost of his Sunday Service concert series, abortion and the fact that God told him to run onstage during the 2009 MTV VMAs.

More recently, Eli Russell Linnetz — who directed West’s “Famous” and “Fade” videos — posted an odd, previously unreleased music video for Tyga and West’s 2016 track “Feel Me” to Instagram, which featured “Kylie coming out of Kim’s vagina,”  as Linnetz explained to E! News.

“The metaphorical meaning being that there would be no Kylie without Kim,” Linnetz added of the clip, which was shelved over West’s Christianity and reportedly cost $1 million to make.
