Kanye West talks about public meltdown on interview with Charlamagne

Kanye West talks about public meltdown on interview with Charlamagne

His closed his recently reopened Twitter account almost a year ago, he said, because, "I didn't have a lot to say. For 400?! That sounds like a choice." said Ye. "Like, you was there for 400 years and it was all of y'all?" I think we're mentally in prison. I like the word "imprisoned" because slavery goes too directly to the idea of blacks ... so prison is something that unites us as one race. Holocaust, Jews. Slavery is blacks. And it's fascinating to see T.I., in a sort of disapproving-wise-uncle role, attempting to remain cordial with West while at the same time letting him know that what he's doing is wrong. West was asked about his recent pro-Trump social media postings and embrace of pro-Trump policies, activists and campaign gear.

"And that sharpens the diamond-our mind, our consciousness, the way we are thinking, just breaking some shit".

In the interview, Kanye also opens up on his decision to wear one of Trump's "Make America Great Again" caps - describing it as a fight for equality.

John Williams, accused of killing sheriff's deputy in ME , in custody
Williams was identified as the primary suspect Wednesday, as a large police presence began searching the Norridgewock area. The sheriff also thanked community members for their patience and support while law enforcement searched for Williams.

West, 40, who dropped "Ye vs. the People" - a collaboration with T.I. TMZ reporter Van Lathan shot back and called West's comments the "absence of thought".

"Sometimes they'll be like, 'damn I'm talking to Ye, I'm not expecting to talk about this.' You know, I'll talk through things, and I put that as advice to people: use people around you as your therapist, cause they probably know more about you. Y'all have me scared of myself, of my vision", he said.

"There is fact and real-world effect behind everything you just said", Van said. People say "feel free", but they don't really want us to feel free. I'm just trying to figure where you're trying to go with this. "Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled and I am unbelievably hurt that you have morphed into something, to me, that is not real".
