Kanye West Drops New Music: 'Lift Yourself'


"Yes, we have the right to independent thought and I independently think that Kanye has lost his mind", Colbert fired-back.

The track shows how Kanye's friends disagree with him, with T.I. answering: "Yeah you can, at what cost though?" As preposterous as the proposition might sound on paper, initial tweets like "I recently did an interview where I placed a high value on time".

After Kanye West was blasted on social media for tweeting pro-Trump videos, he doubled down on his comments, and many believed that fellow rapper Chance, whose real name is Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, was following in his example.

"Thank you Kanye", Trump tweeted three hours later.

Chance wrote that his defense of West, whom he described as his "family", does not translate to support for Trump - or even support for people who support Trump.

Kanye West posted a private text message between him and John Legend to Twitter on Thursday.

Street artist Lushsux did a mural of West with the meme character Big Brain Wojak coming out of his head this week.

West, who met the then president-elect Mr Trump in December 2016, also tweeted to say he was neither a Democrat or a Republican. "Unfortunately, my attempt to support Kanye is being used to discredit my brothers and sisters in the movement and I can't sit by and let that happen either".

The unusual song caused confusion among fans, who were unsure whether the track - featuring lyrics sounding like "scooptity doop, scoop dadee doop, scoop dadadi poop" - is genuine or a joke.

And despite allegations of manipulation, the two seem to be on good terms with Kanye sending out yet another tweet, this one to promote Legend's new album, shortly after. (It is the same telethon Chance referenced in his tweet.) West reportedly told Myers that he was "going to ad-lib a little bit" and famously proceeded to blurt out, "George Bush doesn't care about black people". "The People", the Atlanta rapper spent one entire day with West, and later took to Instagram and revealed despite 'Ye's sturdy stance on his profound Trump advocacy, he will remain optimistic and concludes the task as a "long term work in progress".
