If you thought Kanye West’s slavery rant was bad, think again--it gets worse. TMZ released the full video of West’s time in their studio and it turns out he pulled the “black-on-black” crime card.
Yooooooooooooooo https://t.co/AGW43CvSfJ— julia craven (@juliacraven) May 2, 2018
“Black people have a tendency to focus and march when a white person kills a black person or wears a hat, but when it’s 700 kids being killed in Chicago it’s okay. It's okay for blacks to kill blacks,” West said in the clip. "There's been more focus and more marches on whites killing blacks than kids in Chicago killing each other."
Van Lathan was having none of it, shouting, "That's a lie."
The conversation got more heated after conservative commentator Candace Owens joined.
Kanye also took the time to pontificate on the nature of reality, arguing that "this reality has been forced upon us; it is a choice, just like when I said, 'Slavery is a choice.'"
The rapper suggested that the uglier trappings of reality could be transcended through love and by focusing on the "now."
Following up on that note, Yeezy said he wanted some love from Lathan.
“I love you and I want to give you a hug. I feel like you wanna fight me right now but I love you,” West said.
“I don’t fight with my fists, man. I been through that,” Lathan replied.
Does anyone else want to throw their phone out a window?
