Rapper Kanye West released a new song over the weekend where he defends his controversial support of President Donald Trump.
The song, which reportedly debuted on Los Angeles radio station Power 106 on Friday, is titled, “Ye vs. The People.” The track features West and fellow rapper T.I., whose real name is Tip Harris, debating West’s support of Trump.
The song is about 3 minutes in length.
What do the lyrics say?
“I know Obama was Heaven-sent. But ever since Trump won, it proved that I could be president,” West says in the opening lines.
T.I. responds, saying West’s outspoken Trump support comes at a cost and goes against much of what West has previously taught. He says West has a “selfish agenda.”
“Bruh, I never ever stopped fightin’ for the people. Actually, wearin’ the hat’ll show people that we equal,” West replies. “See that’s the problem with this d*mn nation. All Blacks gotta be Democrats, man, we ain’t made it off the plantation.”
“This s**t is stubborn, selfish, bullheaded, even for you. You wore a dusty ass hat to represent the same views as white supremacy, man, we expect better from you,” T.I. responds. “Have you considered all the damage and the people you hurt? You had a bad idea, and you’re makin’ it worse.”
