Kanye West Doubles Down On His Endorsement of Donald Trump


It’s official now: The Old Kanye definitely isn’t coming back. That era has been lost in history, drowned out by the asine tweets that this new “Sunken Place” Kanye has been spewing since his return to Twitter. The tweets have literally been all over the place. One hour, he’s dropping the names of artists that are supposed to be releasing new music this summer. The next hour he’s tweeting out quotes that only sort of make sense. Now, he’s deciding to hop back into political talk, at the urging of Kim Kardashian.

Let’s think about this one now. Kim Kardashian is now Kanye’s voice of reason. According to him, she’s the one that prodded him to hop back on Twitter and clarify his tweets champion Candace Owens and Donald Trump. Instead the “All Falls Down” and “Crack Music” rapper doubled down on his support of Donald Trump, even sporting a MAGA hat.

Let’s be clear. It’s not even about the fact that he’s showing support for Donald Trump or leaning on a Republican ideology. The man has the freedom to speak on what he wants and support whoever he wants to. It doesn’t really affect me in anyway. Well, at least until he runs for president. Nevertheless, I don’t like how Kanye has switched up. As fans, we have this concept about what the “Old Kanye” is. The Old Kanye was politically astute and was a trendsetter that set the stage for the Drakes of the world to shine. The Old Kanye was unafraid to speak truth to light no matter the consequences, hence his “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” soundbite from back in 2005.

However, we don’t have to go back that far to cite Kanye West’s hypocrisy. Just five years ago he created the song “New Slaves” and clamored about how he can’t be controlled and brought light to the Prison Industrial Complex. He rallied against Nike and other big clothing companies for not supporting fashion designers of color and threatened to expose them. Then again, let me pause and think. Was he speaking for us or was he speaking for himself all along, using our struggle as a way to come up. I’m starting to think so.

Let’s be clear about who Kanye is. Kanye is a raving hypocrite. He is an opportunist that has no problem stand on both sides of an issue for his personal gain. This should be Kanye’s removal from the black community as a whole. He’s one of them now. He’s so much under hypnosis that he doesn’t realize that he’s in the Sunken Place. At this point, that movie was the autobiography of his life.

As a fan of Kanye West, this hurts. And, seeing how things are going in America, we’re going to be seeing a whole lot more of Kanye in the political realm in the future.
