Kanye West Calls Slavery A "Choice" in Latest Interview with TMZ

Kanye West Calls Slavery A

The "Life of Pablo" rapper went to the TMZ newsroom on Tuesday where he was asked to explain his support for Donald Trump's Make America Great Again rhetoric.

West generated considerable controversy last week when he started posting a series of tweets on April 25 expressing his admiration for Trump.

Secretary Carson has remained in the rapper's corner, however. "Two days after I got off of opioids - I was addicted to opioids - I'm in the hospital", he continued.

It appears West was at least somewhat impacted by that response, then walking over to the man and saying, "Bro, I'm sorry I hurt you".

His closed his recently reopened Twitter account almost a year ago, he said, because, "I didn't have a lot to say".

"I went to Paris on that trip to protect her but not protect her physically but to just help her with her looks".

Carson blamed this sort of thinking on a so-called "herd mentality" by people who refuse to think about how the efforts of opposing groups have benefited them.

"When he handed [the pills] to me, he said, 'You know, this is used to kill genius.' Right, so I didn't take it", Kanye revealed. You was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all.

It's no secret that most people of colour disapprove of Trump and his divisive policies, as well as statements in which he disparaged African nations and supported racist organizations. That made me feel like I owed more than just the money itself, the fact that it came from him.

West then walked over to Van and said he was "sorry" he hurt him.

'You're entitled to your opinion.

'Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled, and brother.

West also spoke about his much-maligned Yeezy show at New York Fashion Week in September 2016 where he was accused of turning up two hours late (he maintains it was 45 minutes), while models fainted in the heat.
