(AllHipHop News) Kanye West can add some pioneers of hip-hop to his long list of critics over his resolute support for President Donald Trump.
The Last Poets are among the early forefathers of hip-hop, thanks to their breakthrough revolutionary poetry on regularly sampled songs like "Niggers Are Scared Of Revolution," "When The Revolution Comes," "This Is Madness" and others.
Group members Abiodun Oyewole, Baba Donn Babatunde, and Umar Bin Hassan ripped Kanye a new one last night during an intense concert at the Delaware Art Museum, in Wilmington Delaware last night (October 13).
"He is a coon, f##k that n##ga. I got no love for that n##ga. No f##king love. When Kanye hooked up with the b##ches brew [The Kardashian Family] I knew he was through. He knows better. He should, he aint a child," founding group member Abiodun Oyewole said.
The Last Poets are no strangers to Kanye West.
They collaborated with Kanye and Common on the song "The Corner" from Common's album Be.
The Last Poets were visibly upset with Kanye, after the rapper's 20-minute tirade during his latest trip to the White House, where he showered President Trump with affection and admiration.
Ye even labeled the POTUS his "Superman."
According to Umar Bin Hassan, Kanye is a confused genius, who needs more guidance in his life.
"We did 'The Corner' with him. At the time, I sat down and talked with him...he's a brilliant young man. But he needs some people around him to hold him and touch him and tell them they love him," Umar Bin Hassan said.
Abiodun Oyewole was a bit more direct, stating Kanye was greatly in need of his mother, who passed away abruptly in November 2007, after complications from breast augmentation surgery.
"He misses his mother," Oyewole said. "It's just that simple. And for that, I truly understand, because my son loves him like Umar. And he lost his mother around the same time that Kanye lost his, so he has that bond with Kanye. I also had a chance to talk with Kanye, he is brilliant, there's no doubt about it, he's got a lot going for him. It just hurts me when I see him kowtowing to people like Trump. Trump is not worthy, he's not worthy."
The Last Poets, who just returned from a tour of Europe, were on hand to encourage students from 302 Guns Down and The Lyric Lab, two innovative art programs for youth and adults. The programs promote creative writing through the lens of poetry and Hip-Hop.
The Last Poets are currently working on a new album inspired by the sounds of the Caribbean.
