Kanye West has continued his weird/crazy album rollout, this time releasing the discussion he had with T.I before making their joint track “Ye Vs The People.” During the four-minute clip, Kanye West is seen sharing his thoughts behind wearing Donald Trump’s “MAGA” hat, saying that him wearing the hat “forces an evolution because, even for me, I know so much more in the past 3 days because I’m getting this energy, positive or negative, agreeing with me or disagreeing with me and that sharpens the diamond of our mind and our consciousness.
Kanye also added that him wearing that hat is, “like a fight for equality, like ‘oh, I can wear that hat too.”
T.I. is also seen replying to Kanye by asking Ye which parts of Trump does he agrees with, to which Ye responded that the “ability to do what no one said you can do, to do the impossible, it’s most inspiring thing to me.”
After a brief exchange, Kanye West plays T.I. a clip of “Ye Vs The People,” directing T. I . of his approach he wanted him to take on the track, and how he wanted to replicate the discussion they were having.
Watch the clip above.
