Greatest rapper alive? How Kanye West devolved into just another internet troll

Greatest rapper alive? How Kanye West devolved into just another internet troll

Kanye West with Adidas CMO Eric Liedtke; Jonathan Leibson/Getty Images for ADIDASGlobal sneaker brand Adidas has decided not to ditch Kanye West as their celebrity ambassador, nor of his Yeezy shoe design duties, in the wake of his recent comments about slavery during his controversial interview on TMZ Live.

In the previous video, Van blasted the Chicago rapper for his slavery remarks and said he was out of touch. "Kanye has been, and is, a very important part of our strategy". "I'm not going to comment on every comment that he or somebody else are making". "That sound like a choice", Kanye said.

"For many, many years we have been a member of the USA human rights declaration, which speaks very clearly against slavery, racism, child labor". "You were there for 400 years and it was all of y'all?" Really? Slavery was a choice? He then backpedaled tweeting that he was only talking about mental slavery and that his free thinking should not be criticized.

But West made bigger headlines during a free-wheeling appearance at TMZ Live, part of the Hollywood gossip site.

"Unless Kanye chooses to have much more staged interview moments, we have to ignore some of the stupidity while paying attention to the moments of genius", McCunes said.

"My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved", he added.

I saw the comment as you have seen it.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, I believe it's the ideal time to address Kanye West's recent behavior. "Kanye will always be a friend of mine & although I might not necessarily agree with his views on certain topics, that is what separate us as individuals". "They don't want nothing to happen to Ye, they just want to beat some sense into me.' I love Daz, I love the Crips, I love the Bloods, I love everyone".

The Gold Digger rapper has been hitting headlines ever since he returned to Twitter last month (Apr18) and pledged his support for controversial USA president Donald Trump.

"There clearly are some comments we don't support", he said, according to the report. "You want to think freely, that's fine".

He later explained that Kanye's just being Kanye and as soon as people accept that, they'll be "more comfortable you'll be when you slide back into your Yeezy's".
