Check out Kanye West’s 1990 Dedication To MLK

Kanye West has always had something to say. Check out this dusty footage of him praising Martin Luther King, Jr.

The young poet said:

“A man who fought for freedom/A man who fought for equality/Those who were against him/Were too blind to see/What this man was fighting for/So Blacks, Hispanics, Jews and Asians could put their foot in the door/Yes, we know that this man is great/That’s why today we celebrate/Everyone lifts their voice and sing/For a man who wanted freedom to ring/Martin Luther King is who I’m speaking of/A man whose name means love.”
