The Kanye West-Trump support saga continues on the internet, as the rapper released on Monday a behind-the-scenes video giving fans an inside look at the making of his latest track, "Ye vs. the People".

"There's a class war happening right now. Stressing things that like create validation that I didn't need to worry about as much and just the concept of competition and being in competition with so many elements at one time", West said, when asked about contributing factors in his breakdown.

"When you hear about slavery for 400 years, that sounds like a choice", Kanye said. And while Yeezy's soft spot for Trump has caused a divide in current pop culture, one Philly-born musician took the news particularly hard. You was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all. "I felt the need to speak at this point", he said.


In a two-hour interview with USA radio host Charlamagne Tha God, the controversial rapper spoke about the incidents which he believes contributed to his mental decline.

"Me putting the hat on forces an evolution", West says.

"You know, he never called me to apologize", West said, explaining that Obama had met him and his mother before being elected president. We are following other people's opinions. We don't know how to think for ourselves.


"Half the shit Trump does I don't agree with".

West then walked over to Lathan's desk, saying, "I'm sorry I hurt you", while Lathan reiterated, "Bro, you've got to be responsible. It's just an innate feeling I want to express".

"There is fact and real-world, real-life outcome behind everything that you just said", Van told the rapper, who looked serious as he listened on. Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled, and brother, I'm unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something that's not real.


He then goes on to say that he's going to show Kanye how everyone "comes together" and warns Kanye that "we better not see you in concert".
