Fox News: Kanye West Releases New Song, Doubling Down on Support for Trump

‘West’s opening verse starts with a Trump-Obama comparison: ‘I know Obama was heaven-sent but ever since Trump won, it proved that I could be president.”

Kanye West has made headlines again, after he released a new song on Friday which looked to double down on comments he made this week on Twitter in support of Donald Trump’s presidency.  

“Ye vs. the People” was first played Friday night on a Los Angeles hip-hop radio station, The Washington Post reported. The lyrics seemed to obviously depict the ongoing twitter battle West, aka "Ye," has engaged in with his fans and Hollywood, most likely “the People,” since first enthusiastically voicing his support for Trump.

The song illustrates a back-and-forth between the rapper and fellow artist T.I., who attempts to criticize West for his comments “that go against the teachings” that he initially “taught.”

“But ain’t goin’ against the grain everything I fought for,” he rebukes.

West’s opening verse starts with a Trump-Obama comparison: “I know Obama was heaven-sent but ever since Trump won, it proved that I could be president.”

The song also refers to the signed “MAGA” hat the rapper showed on Twitter.

“I never ever stopped fightin’ for the people. Actually wearin’ the hat’ll show people that we equal,” he says. “Make America Great Again had a negative reception. I took it, wore it, rocked it, gave it a new direction.”
