It’s been about three and a half minutes since Kanye West has been back in the limelight, and so far he’s promised new music and also shown support for a Black Lives Matter-hating conservative. Just so you know, the Kanye Krazy Train still has PLENTY of stops left and the next station stop is I Love Me Some Donald Trump Station. All aboard!
And before I even get into this, I told y’all Kanye was about to start showing his ass like a dancer in a Luke video soon. According to Vulture Kanye and Hot 97 radio host Ebro Darden got into a very heated discussion via telephone after Ebro posted a picture of Beyonce during Coachella to his Instagram and threw a slight dig at Kanye’s new right wing flirtation.
Kanye caught wind of the shady breeze and within moments he and Ebro were locked in a 30 minute phone conversation that took more twists and turns than an episode of Empire. During yesterday’s broadcast of Ebro in the Morning, the host decided to give a quick overview of his chat with Kanye.
First, Kanye confessed that the reason why he defended Candace Owens is because she challenges conventional black thoughts. He also told Ebro that he wanted to have an open dialog about the social injustices taking place. Ebro immediately interrupted with his hand up and said “Imma let you finish..”
“The conversation’s been open, bro. You’re just not a part of it. And you’re just chiming in right now because you got an album coming out.”
Round one goes to Ebro. Since Kanye knew he wouldn’t win the “Yeah I’m still woke” battle with his weak argument, he then went with something that was sure to garner some sympathy by revealing that his hospitalization in 2016 was due to an opioid addiction.
Kanye: “Nobody really showed love for me when I was addicted to opioids and in the hospital”
Ebro: “You’re a liar. I know people who personally reached out to (label mate Pusha T) and anybody they could, Scooter Braun and anybody close to you to come to your aid. People love you bro.’”
Round Two goes to Ebro, because I believe him more so than Kanye. And honestly The Kardashian Koven probably kept all of his well wishers away during that time because nobody is allowed to get any more attention than them.
Finally, the cherry on top of this shit-filled sundae was when Kanye flat-out spoke the words we’ve all been wanting to hear for years: “I do love Donald Trump”.
Throughout their conversation, Darden says Kanye professed his love for Donald Trump, explaining that he “reached out to Obama for years and couldn’t get anything done, but Trump gave me a meeting.” When Darden questioned the legitimacy of that meeting, saying he allowed Trump to merely exploit him for a photo op, Kanye said Trump is just busy. Kanye told Darden his ultimate goal is to “deprogram” people and “have people think differently than they thought before,” and that he doesn’t believe he’s out of touch.
Kanye, brotha, you’re more out of touch than the guy who just missed the trapeze and is now falling to his death. Also during the interview, Kanye stated that he feels as though he’s being demonized and just wants to lead with love. To which Ebro had to remind him that the people he chooses to align with are the exact opposite of leading with love. Bottom line, Yeezy is back again to provide the greatest hit he’s ever given us: sheer insanity. And Ebro sums it up perfectly.
“You think about who Kanye’s been the entire time; selfish. Trolly. Materialistic. Did I say selfish? And selfish. And self important.”
Ebro wins. FATALITY.
