President Donald Trump was the subject of the 37-year-old Grammy winner's new opposing single featuring West - titled Ye vs. the People - which just dropped Saturday. Though in recent provocative comments about slavery, #Kanye West might face his biggest scandal yet.

Wednesday morning, the co-hosts played a clip of the rapper's controversial remarks during his appearance on TMZ followed by his enthusiastic endorsement for the current president.

Yesterday, Kanye West released a 105-minute video interview in which he participated in a thoughtful, well-articulated discussion. "For 400 years? That sound like a choice", West said on the show Tuesday. We can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years.

In Mubi, local volunteer Habu Saleh, who was involved in the rescue effort, described the aftermath of the bombing as "chaos". USA military officials in Abuja have recently questioned Nigerian tactics faced with guerilla tactics from Boko Haram.

".I think the overall point and what I was trying to impart on Kanye West is that the most unsafe person you could give a gun to is a child and the reason why is because, in the child's innocence and ignorance, they don't know how risky the weapon is", Lathan said. Unfortunately, any goodwill that came from the interview was immediately diminished when Kanye and conservative provocateur Candece Owens made their way to TMZ on Tuesday afternoon.

Speaking to Charlamagne tha God, West said he was upset that Obama invited other rappers to the White House such as Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z. We need free thought now'.

West received a fair amount of backlash after the interview, and quickly clarified on Twitter that he was referring to "mental enslavement", not the brutal and physical act of being captured and sold into bondage - but Goldberg was not sure that it really cleared anything up. Outraged and upset followers began voicing their thoughts and opinions regarding the rapper.

In response to the public outcry, U.S. artist and social activist Will.i.am appeared on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday and labelled Mr West's comments about slavery as "ignorant". #IfSlaveryWasAChoice was the No. 1 trend on Twitter last night, and Kanye's comments were dissected throughout the evening by cable news networks, political pundits, and shell-shocked fans alike.

The musician tweeted about the parallel between slavery and prisons, writing, "its not & never was by choice".
