Rapper Kanye West says slavery in Africa was a choice

Rapper Kanye West says slavery in Africa was a choice

"Kanye and Yeezy is a very important part of our brand from a revenue standpoint.It's a very important part of how we promote our products, particularly in the USA and other parts of the world".

"Best believe, I'm going to take the stigma off the word 'crazy'".

As for West, he said on TMZ Live that he found the threat to be sweet. For the last few weeks, Kanye has been in the media for his provocative tweets, being seen wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and confessing his support for Trump. West appeared volatile and erratic, first admitting that he was addicted to opioids and eventually delivering this jaw-dropping statement: "When you hear about slavery for 400 years - for 400 years?"


"Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all a y'all?" Kanye said he was addicted to opioids that doctors prescribed after he received liposuction.

Multiple sources told Us on Wednesday, May 2, that the couple are paying the legal bills for Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old woman who is now serving a life sentence in prison on a nonviolent drug conviction. "That's my question!" Budden said in reference to Kanye's recent interview and fans' defense of the controversial comments. He then backpedaled tweeting that he was only talking about mental slavery and that his free thinking should not be criticized.

Adidas has partnered with West since 2013, in what has been one of its most significant business relationships with a non-athlete. "That's pretty much the party line at this stage", he said. And the reason why I feel like that is because, Kanye, you're entitled to your opinion.


The Wrap reports that a new Reuters poll shows that support for President Trump among African-American men "doubled from 11 percent, for the week ending April 22, to 22 percent, for the week ending April 29". I know the music is gonna be fire, every time he drops it's a cultural moment, it's an event. "They don't want nothing to happen to Ye, they just want to beat some sense into me.' I love Daz, I love the Crips, I love the Bloods, I love everyone".

"We need free thought now".

Rorsted said that he had not spoken to West. However, these examples highlight the complexities of mental illness and how many of us are quick to just think it is amusing.
