Kayne West has been a very polarizing figure since 2009 when he showed up to a red carpet drinking Hennesey, and then stole the mic from Taylor Swift. However, what got him “canceled” was when he decided to endorse Trump, sporting his Make America Great Again hat.. Ohh and then said that slavery was a choice on TMZ! If you don’t remember what he said here is the clip. Here

But, did Kanye just make a power move? He is known for being extreme, but lying to the entire world for 4 years.. This is something new, even for Kayne! 

According to Kayne’s childhood friend and G.O.O.D music artist GLC claims that Kanye has thrown away all of his MAGA hats and will not be supporting Trump any longer, and the only reason why he wore the hat was to get the attention of the President… for a positive reason.

According to GLC who appeared on The Red Pill Podcast with Van Lathan earlier this year, Kanye told him,  “Bro, I’m just tellin’ you that we got that amazing woman out of jail in Florida, right?… We didn’t really get to have that meeting until I put the hat on. So he lookin’ like it as, more so, OK, I wear the hat, I get the stones thrown at me, I’ll have people hating me, but people gonna get free.”

Looks like Kanye really took one for the team and only put on this huge production, so that he and Kim could help get justice for those in prison.

In an effort to help unite the Black community and do his part in the fight for social injustice, TMZ reported that Kanye participated in a protest in Chicago, and donated $2 million to George Floyd’s daughter’s college fund. He has also donated to Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor’s families to help cover legal fees in their ongoing investigations.

Kanye has also donated to several Black owned businesses in his hometown of Chicago and nationwide who have been affected by the global pandemic.
