Kanye West on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live

Kanye West, continuing his controversy tour 2018, spoke Tuesday to TMZ Live about slavery, free thought and his love for President Trump.

The rapper went on to add: "You were there for 400 years and it's all of y'all". West said. "That sounds like a choice". It's like we're mentally in prison. I like the word "prison" because slavery is too direct to the idea of blacks. "We're the human race", he continued.

But in the midst of the uproar, the most talked-about response came immediately following Kanye's rant, right there at TMZ's television studios in Los Angeles - and it wasn't from a celebrity.

He spoke to Charlamagne about his relationship with former U.S. president Barack Obama, which was damaged after a video leaked in 2009 in which Mr Obama, reacting to West's infamous outburst at the MTV Video Music Awards that year, referred to the rapper as a "jacka**".

T.I. and Kanye West argued USA political ideology on "Ye. vs the People", but the two had a very private conversation before the making of the song. "His whole thing is that we're choosing to be enslaved by choosing to listen to the media outlets". When you're a slave you are deprived of education. "That's not choice. That's by force". As he revealed new thoughts on Trump, conservatism, blackness, fashion, music and more, we accepted Kanye for who he was.

Kanye was defended, however, by fellow rapper The Game who tweeted that "Kanye' is a genius".

Mat Johnson likened West to Samuel L Jackson's character Stephen from Django Unchained, a twisted slave who sees himself as above other people of color. We need to update our conversation.

West went on to tweet, "They cut out our tongues so we couldn't communicate to each other. I will not allow my tongue to be cut. they can no longer stop our voice". "I'm going to fight, ' and white folks got on board, and everybody got on board and said, 'This is not okay, we're all American citizens and we should all be able to vote.' You change the laws, you change the mentality, but you can't pretend people were just saying, 'I'm going to say here because this feels really comfortable for me.' No!"

"Kim isn't mad about [the Trump] tweets", a source tells Us Weekly, "but she's anxious that people will think she shares the same views".
