Kanye and T.I literally went full on debate on Yeezy’s new single “Ye VS The People” following the backlash from Kanye’s recent…..(should we call it support) towards President Trump, and he launches his side of the conversation by pointing out the possibility of becoming President ever since Donald Trump took the office.
T.I is the voice of reasoning that’s trying to keep Ye in check, remarking that what fight Kanye is looking to start it better be the sort that stops black folks from getting shot. Kanye however claims that by wearing the ”Make America Great Again” hat he was proving that blacks and whites are equal. To some of his expressions T.I points out that Kanye was defended when he was going crazy, so he should let everyone down now.
Here are some notable lines from back and forth we enjoy on the new single.
Kanye: I know Obama was Heaven-sent / But ever since Trump won, it proved that I could be President.
T.I. : Yeah you can, at what cost though? / Don’t that go against the teachings that ‘Ye taught for?
Kanye: Yo, Tip, I hear your side and everybody talk, though / But ain’t goin’ against the grain everything I fought for?
T.I. :Prolly so, Ye, but where you tryna go with this?
It’s some shit you just don’t align with and don’t go against
Kanye: See that’s the problem with this damn nation / All Blacks gotta be Democrats, man, we ain’t made it off the plantation.
T.I. : Fuck who you choose as your political party / You representin’ dudes just seem crude and cold-hearted / With blatant disregard for the people who put you in position / Don’t you feel an obligation to them?
Kanye: I feel a obligation to show people new ideas / And if you wanna hear ’em, there go two right here / Make America Great Again had a negative reception / I took it, wore it, rocked it, gave it a new direction / Added empathy, care and love and affection / And y’all simply questionin’ my methods.
TI : What you willin’ to lose for the point to be proved? / This shit 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 / All them times you sounded crazy, we defended you, homie / Not just to be let down when we depend on you, homie / That’s why it’s important to know what direction you’re goin’ now / ‘Cause everything that you built can be destroyed and torn down.
Kanye: You think I ain’t concerned about how I affect the past? / I mean, that hat stayed in my closet like ’bout a year and a half / Then one day I was like, “Fuck it, I’ma do me” / I was in the sunken place and then I found the new me / Not worried about some image that I gotta keep up / Lot of people agree with me, but they too scared to speak up.
What does this say about the upcoming Kanye West album??
