Kanye West Says 400 Years of Slavery 'Sounds Like a Choice'
Kanye West continues to stir controversy. After showing love to President Trump, the G.O.O.D. Music boss is under fire for his controversial comments about slavery.
“When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years? That sound like a choice,” said West during a visit to TMZ. “You was there for 400 years, and it’s all of y’all? We’re mentally in prison. Slavery goes to direct to the idea of blacks. Slavery, Holocaust, Holocaust is Jews, slavery is blacks. Prison unites us as one race…We’re the human race.”
West went on to say that he won’t budge on his love for Trump and criticized others for doing so. “I just love Trump,” he said. “That’s my boy. You’ll look at a video of Snoop Dogg loving Trump, but then he gets into office and now you don’t love him.”
In another portion of the interview, West revealed information about his health. The Chicago-born artist said he got hooked on pain killers following liposuction surgery leading up to his 2016 breakdown. “I was drugged the fuck out, bro,” he said. “I was addicted to opioids. I had plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y’all.”
He went on to say that he isn’t taking the medication that he’s been prescribed. “I’m not drugged out,” he said. “These pills they want me to take, three of a day, I take one or two a week maybe.”
