Rapper T.I. confronted Kanye West about Trump tweets & MAGA hat

Rappers T.I. and Kanye West had a face-to-face discussion about a variety of topics before creating their debate track called, “Ye vs. The People.” T.I., real name Clifford Harris Jr., was part of an interview on “The Breakfast Club” touching on the Kanye subject. During the interview, he spoke about having a visit with West at his home and confronting him on his recent tweets, as well as Kanye’s donning of a “Make America Great Again” cap.

The recent interview involving T.I. comes after West appeared in an interesting interview conducted by Charlemagne The God. During that talk, Kanye spoke about his mental health situation, his relationship with Jay-Z, and being inspired by Donald Trump’s presidential run. Now T.I. has gone on record to talk about his interaction with the hip-hop star just before they collaborated on a track debating President Trump.

T.I. said he was invited to West’s Los Angeles home after reaching out to him. He mentioned that upon his telling Kanye about how he disappointed a number of his fans with his tweets and “MAGA” hat, it seemed to bring about some regret on Kanye’s part. However, Kanye reiterated that he was being a “free thinker” and expressing his thoughts.

T.I. also went on to say he wanted to reach out to Kanye to see where his mind was at wondering if there was a “punch line” for all of the hip-hop star’s tweets. The rapper mentioned that Kanye is like the “Michael Jackson” of the “black delegation” and “we can’t afford to lose him.”
