Kanye West sat down to have lunch with his president Donald Trump on Thursday. Dressed in all black and a red MAGA hat, the rapper matched Trump’s apparel in typical minion fashion. After a video of the pair admiring one another in the Oval Office was shared on Fox News, rapper T.I. couldn’t hold back his disgust any longer in an Instagram post:
View this post on InstagramNow I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye’& his antics... Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this shit is next level,futuristic Sambo,Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass shit Ye!!!! From what I can gather... This is the most repulsive,disgraceful, Embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen. Now I recall you asking me to come with you to have this meeting and I declined (naturally)... but bro... if ain’time I would’ve been in there wit you and you behaved that spinelessly in my presence,I feel that I’d be compelled to slap de’Fuq outta you bro For the People!!! You ass kissing and boot licking on a whole new level &I refuse to associate myself with something so vile,weak,& inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!! I’m a true believer in “It ain’t what you do,it’s how you do it.” And this shit is regurgitating🤮! At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you... now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you. To all the people who follow Ye musically,socially, or even personally....who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated.... Let me make this clear... THIS SHIT AINT COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! THIS IS A PLAY TO PUT HIM IN A POSITION HE’D LIKE TO SEE HIMSELF IN...WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS. Don’t follow this puppet. Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world,if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr.West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is... I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop,I’m officially DONE!!!! 🖕🏽Trump & His Lil Cookie Boy. #USorELSE✊🏽
“This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embracing act of desperation and auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen,” T.I. wrote.
T.I. pushed forward, reminding Kanye that he remembered a personal moment when Kanye requested that T.I. join him at the event, but the idea of the pair facing the controversial leader seemed less than favorable.
“If… you behaved that spinelessly in my presence, I feel that I’d be compelled to slap de’Fuq outta you bro,” T.I. said. “For the People!”
In April, the King of the South joined the Chi-town rapper in a song of political discourse titled "Ye vs. The People" after he was seen sporting a MAGA hat and espousing support for the 45th president.
T.I. concluded his heartfelt rant by reaching out to Kanye’s fans and letting them know that Ye’s actions aren't that of a person who should be idolized as the "All Falls Down" rapper once was.
“THIS S**T AIN’T COOL,” T.I. warned. “THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! THIS IS A PLAY TO PUT HIM IN A POSITION HE’D LIKE TO SEE HIMSELF IN… Don’t follow this puppet.”
According to a preview the White House sent to CNN, the goal of the meeting was to center the conversation around “President Trump’s historic work to benefit all Americans such as urban revitalization, the creation of Opportunity Zones, new workforce training programs, record highs in African American employment, the creation of manufacturing jobs, ideas from his meeting with African American pastors, potential future clemencies, and addressing the massive violent crime surge in Chicago.”
