Kanye West is continuing to have people on social media scratching their heads. After posting several pro-Trump tweets, over the past few days, the rapper released two new songs.
On "Ye vs. the People" featuring T.I., West spits about Trump, former President Barack Obama, police brutality and more. Due to his recent tweets, many want to see exactly what his thought process is. So, this song did give some insight into it. But, we're still confused.
"I feel an obligation to show people new ideas / And if you wanna hear them, there go two right here," West raps on The Four Tops-sampled song. "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. claps back: "What you willing to lose for the point to be proved? This s**t 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 adds, "Starting to make it seem like Donnie cut you a check." Tip also wondered if West really was in "the sunken place."
West also dropped "Lift Yourself." However, things soon take an odd turn on it. West starts rapping, "What they don't really realize, though, this next verse, this next verse, though, these bars." And then, he raises eyebrows when he goes, "Whoopdedy-scoop, whoopdedy-whoop-scoop-poop/ Poop/ Poop." How Sway???
