Kanye West defends Trump in new song

Kanye West Twitter

By contrast, West has always been known for his pro-black politics: he once stood next to Mike Myers on live TV and accused George Bush of not caring about black people post-Katrina; he's talked about being the "great grandson of slaves" and written lyrics like "hands up we just doing what the cops taught us".

The musician, after lighting up the internet with his controversial support of USA president Donald Trump, debuted Ye VS. Today, West released a new song called "Ye Vs".

West references Get Out's metaphorical "sunken place", and also professes a frustration with people pigeonholing black Americans as liberals: "See, that's the problem with this damn nation/All blacks gotta be Democrats, man, we ain't made it off the plantation". I'm going to apologise to you because I think I'm taking up your airtime, but I will not be on the show and I will not discuss any of that.

Woke fans: Another person wrote: 'Wowwwwww, so yea this was just a publicity stunt #YeVsThePeople... There was excitement within the hip-hop community over Kanye's new music.

Kanye took down his album Yeezy from iTunes in 2013 over his "dislike" of the corporate culture.

Kim's response was to be expected, but now, there's an iCarly fan account called iCarly Brasil that has responded to Kanye's tweets with the most freaky messages.




This is his first solo track since he released his critically acclaimed 2016 album, The Life of Pablo.

Representatives for 40-year-old West are yet to return a request for clarity. However, things went downhill once he revealed his political ideas.

Hot 97 launched audio following day, in which the rapper can be heard telling Ebro repeatedly, "I love you".

West raised eyebrows on Wednesday when he sent a flurry of since-deleted tweets criticising former president Mr Obama and supporting his "brother" Mr Trump.

Coincidentally he had announced a new book and two new albums on Twitter just days beforehand.

"Make America Great Again had a negative reception". Trump responded on Twitter, "Thank you Kanye, very cool!"
