Kanye West continues to make news and drive culture. The super producer and rap impresario has made some great music over the years. In between producing Pusha T, Nas, Kid Cudi and Teyana Taylor, West has kept his name in the media with his support for President Trump. His recent pro-Trump rant on Saturday Night Live created a national stir:
The rant included Kanye’s thoughts about welfare, black fathers being removed from the home, his being in the sunken place, and being bullied for wearing his MAGA hat:
During the show, Yeezy performed “I Love It” and “K.T.S.E.” and during the show’s famous closing credits he grabbed the mic to perform “Ghost Town.” At this point, he was already wearing his Make America Great Again hat and then he begin to go into a rant about the sunken place, racism, Democrats and his worship of Trump.
He babbled, “So many times I talk to a white person and [they] say, ‘How could you like Trump, he’s racist?’ Well, if I was concerned about racism I would have moved out of America a long time ago.”
He then claimed Democrats took “fathers out the home and promote welfare.” He continued, “You wanna see the sunken place? Okay, Im’a listen to y’all now. I’ma put my superman cape on, because this means you can’t tell me what to do… You want the world to move forward? Try love.” He also said we need a” dialogue, not a diatribe.” Even though he was the one on a diatribe.
It also drew the ire of the entire hip hop community, including super producer Swizz Beatz.
