After two month absence, Kanye West sends a message to his fans on his website. He said:

Thank you for all your support."

He goes on to reveal that a little friendly competition while playing the classic strategy game "Connect Four" helped him through a difficult time:

"When I was in Europe I would play this game for hours and hours… it helped me zone out. Everybody would get envolved [sic]… DERRICK DUDLEY (COMMON's manager) and CONSEQUENCE were the best other than me… I beat LEXI… DON C beat JAY… TONY WILLIAMS beat Common… but every now and then people would speak of this legendary connect 4 champion……….. BEYONCÉ!!! I had 2 play her!…so last night at Jay's new 40/40 club in Las Vegas (which is sidebar, crazy big w/ 24krt gold flooring, Black Jack tables, $500 slot machines, the biggest projection screen in the universe and the best turkey burgers I've ever had in my life) she beat me 9 times in a row! (and I didn't even spaz lol) here's a photo of the only game I won! Happy new year everybody!"
