(AllHipHop News) Kanye West caught heat over the weekend after the G.O.O.D. Music head endorsed controversial right-wing commentator Candice Owens. This came after Kanye told the world he would have voted for Donald Trump and even met with the then president-elect at Trump Tower in 2016.
West's embrace of what some people see as public figures that promote racist ideologies upset many of the rapper's fans. A running meme on social media is that Ye is now in the Sunken Place, a reference to the movie Get Out where African-Americans' consciousness has been taken over by Caucasians.
Following the latest round of backlash directed at him, Kanye actually joked about the negative reactions. The Chicago native tweeted, "I'm hand producing all the albums I tweeted about. Been chopping samples from the sunken place."
Ye is reportedly overseeing entire projects by Pusha T, Teyana Taylor, and Nas. There is also a new solo Kanye West album as well as a joint LP with Kid Cudi set for release.
Kanye may not be too bothered about the Get Out jokes, but his wife has expressed she doesn't find them funny. Kim Kardashian told Elle in March, "Another dumb f-cking Kanye/Get Out reference. People are so f-cking dumb and stupid."
