However, in an interview with David Letterman, the famous rapper goes off once again about those who disagree with his politics, basically labeling Liberals as bitter motherf-ckers.
West, of course, is an unabashed Donald Trump supporter.
He loves to wear his Make America Great Again and he held court in the Oval Office several months ago.
Kanye has come under fire for these beliefs from critics who think President Trump is a narcissistic, dumb racist — and he’s very annoyed about it!
“This is like my thing with Trump — we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” West tells Letterman in a chat that will debut on Netflix on May 31.
He goes on to say that rocking a “Make America Great Again” hat is “not about politics,” but rather an attempt to break the stigma around showing support for Trump.
There’s an odd hill to wanna die on, right?
In the discussion, Letterman brings up the Republican-led voter suppression efforts during the recent midterm elections.
“So if I see a person that I admire talking about Donald Trump can think whatever he does,” he says, “I wonder if those thoughts, indirectly, aren’t hurting people who are already being hurt.”
In other words: Donald Trump’s policies are having a harmful effect on African-Americans.
Doesn’t Kanye realize that his support is therefore contributing to this pain and suffering?
West ignores this question and replies that Trump voters are “treated like enemies of America because that’s what they felt.”
After Letterman makes a case that Trump actually is not helping those who vote for him, that it’s just one giant con perpetrated by the President, West shoots back:
“Have you ever been beat up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?”
Simply put, he adds:
“Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!”
It really is pretty sad.
All those Trump supporters want to do is deport foreigners, take away the rights of LGBTQ members and cheer on corruption at the highest level in peace.
Give them a break, Liberals! Leave them alone!
Elsewhere, Kanye brings up his issues with Drake at one point, although he refuses to mention the artist by name.
We had a little beef last year,” West tells the comedian.
“He has this line that I love that says, ‘I told my story and made history’ – like made his story and made history. That’s what we do, we tell our story and then people relate to that story.”
Continues Kanye, sort of on this topic:
“I have a friend who told me that my power is my influence. And I said my power is my ability to not be influenced.”
We’re not totally sure what Kanye is talking about here, either.
But check out excerpts from the interview below:
Megan Thee Stallion is working on a film screenplay
Megan Thee Stallion has confirmed she is working on a film screenplay.
Megan had previously alluded to a feature film development in a NME Big Read interview last month. In a new interview, the Houston rapper confirmed her work in progress and said she was a big horror film fan, but did not specify whether her own work would be part of the genre.
“It’s gonna be something that definitely blows your mind; you’ve never seen it before,” she told Variety.
The rapper also confirmed she would appear as a judge in the renewed second season of Legendary 2, though it still has not begun taping.
“Seeing how hard they work to kill it for three minutes, it made me think, ‘If I’m not going that hard, I need to change my work ethic’,” she said of the show.
Megan did not speak about a shooting incident in July, in which she sustained gunshot wounds in her foot and rapper Tory Lanez was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed weapon in his vehicle. Variety was reportedly told the topic was “off-limits”.
Megan is set to release a collaborative single with Nicki Minaj on Friday (August 7), titled ‘WAP’. Details of her anticipated debut album remain scarce, though she said it would definitely address the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Even though I haven’t already come out with a song with that messaging, I definitely plan on it.”
In July, Megan told NME lockdown had helped her finish the album.
“When I’m by myself, that’s when my creativity comes to me. The whole album was basically written in the living room, the shower, the backyard – just visualise it with me,” she said.
iDKHOW announce debut album with new single ‘Leave Me Alone’
iDKHOW, the new project from former Panic! At The Disco member Dallon Weekes, have dropped a brand new single, ‘Leave Me Alone’, also announcing details of their forthcoming debut album, ‘Razzmatazz’.
‘Leave Me Alone’ is the first offering from ‘Razzmatazz’, set for release in October and the next chapter in the iDKHOW storyline, a complex world of Weekes’ creation.
The new track is released with an accompanying lyric video. Watch it below.
Weekes explained the inspiration behind the song in a press release, where he stated, “When you’re in a toxic situation, the phrase ‘Leave Me Alone’ is the last civil thing you say before things get uncivil.”
iDKHOW, an abbreviation for I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME, are a duo, comprised of Weekes and ex-Falling In Reverse drummer Ryan Seaman.
“iDKHOW was initially believed to have been a band from 30 plus years ago that never got their big break,” said a statement in the band’s press release. “But in 2017, an anonymous source began to release recovered video footage of iDKHOW.
“The videos that span the years 1964 to 1983 have been released out of sequence and display a mysterious genesis that has yet to be understood.”
Four years ago, Weekes introduced iDKHOW in a Los Angeles club, only to deny the project’s existence in the following months.
P!ATD and Weekes fans rejoiced when iDKHOW’s 2018 debut EP ‘1981 Extended Play’ was released, which has since reached audiences of more than 64 million across various platforms.
‘Razzmatazz’ out October 16 via Fearless Records. Pre-order here.
Watch Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra play ‘Moth Into Flame’
Metallica have shared another sneak preview of their upcoming concert film S&M2, performing ‘Moth Into Flame’ with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.
Watch it below.
The forthcoming live album/concert was recorded at two shows that took place in 2019 to mark the 20th anniversary of the metal band’s seminal live album ‘S&M’.
S&M2 was first screened in a one-night-only event in October that year.
The band have previously shared renditions of ‘Nothing Else Matters’ and ‘All Within My Hands’ from the film.
As with its predecessor, the 20-song feature contains symphonic versions of some of Metallica’s greatest hits, with at least one track lifted from each of their ten studio releases.
The film will be released in a variety of formats on August 28, including 4xLP vinyl, 2xCD, DVD and Blu-ray versions and a limited edition colour vinyl 4xLP + 2xCD + Blu-ray “Deluxe Box”.
Drummer Lars Ulrich defended the infamous snare drum sound on the band’s 2003 album ‘St Anger’ in an interview last month.
Fans and other drummers have long criticised the thin snapping sound of the drum heard throughout the album.
“I stand behind it 100% because, at that moment, that was the truth,” Ulrich said.
“Whether it’s Metallica always thinking ahead, or in my personal life, or in relationships, whatever I’m doing — I’m just always thinking ahead. Sometimes, arguably, I spent too much time in the future, but I rarely spend any time in the past. And so the only time this stuff really comes up is in interviews.”
