(AllHipHop News) Mr. West was back in the news this week, thanks to a new interview. Kanye returned to his hometown of Chicago, and he stopped by local radio station WGCI for an hour-long discussion.
Clips of the Q&A went viral on Wednesday, but 107.5 has now posted the full conversation on YouTube. The Ye album creator talked about the rumored feud with Drake, his support for Donald Trump, and he offered a mea culpa for his statements about slavery.
"I don't know if I properly apologized for how that slave comment made people feel, so I want to take this moment right now to say that I'm sorry for hurting, I'm sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment," offered Kanye.
He added, "And I'm sorry for people who felt let down by that moment, and also I appreciate you guys giving me the opportunity to talk to you about the way I was thinking and what I was going through and what led me to that."
A few weeks ago, Kanye appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The late-night host asked Ye why he believes Trump cares about black people. West didn't respond at that time, but he finally gave an answer on WGCI.
"I feel that [Trump] cares about the way black people feel about him, and he would like for black people to like him like they did when he was cool in the rap songs," said Kanye.
The G.O.O.D. Music leader continued, "He will do the things that are necessary to make that happen because he's got an ego like all the rest of us, and he wants to be the greatest president, and he knows that he can't be the greatest president without the acceptance of the black community."
