Admittedly, it does seem like an awkward way to go over such details (the letter was given to The Blast, and was then posted to the site), but Adams says he’s open to a meeting, which Kanye seems excited about.
“This is amazing,” Kanye wrote in a retweet of the letter on Monday. “Thank you for this connection brother. I can’t wait to sit with you and start healing.”
