The rapper, who memorably visited Trump at the White House in October 2018, mentioned that “better real estate” was his main motivation for backing Trump.

The rapper and his spouse, Kim Kardashian, personal in depth properties throughout the US – together with their main residence in Calabasas, California, and two ranches.

When requested if he feared turning into an outcast resulting from his political leanings, West responded: “Celebrities are scared! Celebrities don’t have the real voice… What’s the point of being a celebrity if you can’t have an opinion?”

Referencing Hillary Clinton’s 2016 ‘I’m With Her’ slogan, he mentioned: “I used to be instructed my profession would finish if I wasn’t together with her. What sort of marketing campaign is that, anyway? That’s like if Obama’s marketing campaign was ‘I’m with black.’

“Both my parents were freedom fighters… they didn’t fight for me to be told by white people which white person I can vote on!”

In the identical interview, Kanye opened up about making new music once more after initially saying he would now not rap following his conversion to Christianity.

“I was thinking of not rapping again, because I rapped for the devil so long that I didn’t even know how to rap for God. Then one of my pastors told me, ‘My son just said that he would want a rap album about Jesus from Kanye West’”, he mentioned.

Last yr, West’s Sunday Service Choir launched its debut album, ‘Jesus Is Born’. In a four-star reviewNME mentioned: “Whether you believe in a higher being or have any interest in gospel music is not essential in appreciating ‘Jesus Is Born’. In fact, in keeping with West’s mission to spread the word of his god, the album could spark a more open-minded attitude to the genre among secular music fans.”
