Kanye West is a character that many don’t associate with vulnerability or self reflection, but these are things the rapper boasts of in spades.
He recently showed that side of himself, getting emotional while at an interview with WGCI 107.5
Here Kanye apologized for his comments that slavery was a choice and he also spoke of the ‘downfall’ of Kanye coming due to not having close friends such as Don C with him at times he needed them the most.
Don C is a streetwear designer of the brand Just Don, and was a one-time tour manager for West.
The two are friends and the rapper said that a lack of support was at fault for some of his outbursts.
The rapper also spoke gave a definitive answer to the question posed to him by Jimmy Kimmel on the ‘Kimmel Show’, where the late show host asked him; “You so famously and so powerfully said ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ It makes me wonder, what makes you think that Donald Trump does?”
He was silent while on Kimmel, but in this interview he gave a response. He said; “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 and all this.”
He 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. So it’s something he’s gonna work towards, but we’re gonna have to speak to him.”
He also said that at some point he’d love to reconcile with Drake after the two had a falling out in the wake of the Pusha-T controversy.
