Kanye West: "I know Obama was heaven-sent. But ever since Trump won, it proved I could be president" [View all]



Kanye West unveiled his new single "Ye Vs. The People," a response to his controversial week on social media, on Los Angeles' Power 106 Friday night.

The track pits West versus the people, with T.I. serving as the voice of the millions who questioned West's Trump-loving, #MAGA hat-wearing tweets of the past week. "I know Obama was heaven-sent / But ever since Trump won, it proved I could be president," the rapper declares in his opening.

"I feel an obligation to show people new ideas / And if you wanna hear them, there go two right here," West says on the Four Tops-sampling track. "Make America Great Again had a negative reception / I took it, wore it, rocked it, gave it a new direction / Added empathy, care, love and affection / And y'all simply questioning my methods."

T.I. fires back, "What you willing to lose for the point to be proved? This shit is stubborn, selfish, bullheaded, even for you / You wore a dusty ass hat to represent the same views as white supremacy / Man, we expect better from you." T.I. later notes of West's Twitter feed, "Starting to make it seem like Donnie cut you a check" and wonders whether West is in "the sunken place."

West retorts, "Y'all be leading with hate, see I just approach it different / Like a gang truce / Like the first Blood to shake the Crip's hand."
