The Hip-Hop community is feeling a bit bamboozled, because it was just a week before the rapper was placed into a mental facility stemming from "Kanye West likened himself to Donald J. Trump at a concert on Saturday in California before tumbling into a 17-minute, free-associative speech addressing radio programmers, MTV, his friends and collaborators Jay Z and Beyoncé, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg and more." according to The New York Times. (See article here). Now it's a viral social media trend, and the entire country seem to be outraged. To some this is no different from Jay-Z and Beyonce meeting and partying with the Obama's. Why the double standard?
Immediately in a series of tweets Kanye West explains the conversation he had with the Donald. "I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change. These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculum's, and violence in Chicago.I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues."-Kanye West
Not only has Kanye West meeting with Donald Trump a positive mark in history, but if West successfully performs at the 2017 inauguration he will also go down in history as one of the greatest rappers of all time to perform at one of the biggest events of 2017.
