Kanye West Gives Impromptu Speech at Apple Store in Washington, D.C.
Kanye West continues to dominate headlines with his polarizing actions. Following his widely publicized meeting with President Trump at the White House earlier today (Oct. 11), the Chicago rapper made a surprise visit to a Washington, D.C. Apple Store to deliver an impromptu speech.
Jack Jenkins, a reporter for Religion News Service, was in the right place at the right time to capture the moment when ’Ye hopped on a table in the Apple Store and shared it on Twitter.
In a series of tweets, Jenkins reported that the G.O.O.D. Music leader apparently asked if he could give a keynote speech and proceeded to get on the table. During his discussion, Kanye revealed he made a new MAGA hat for Trump, which can unofficially be dubbed MAG now since the MC said it was embroidered with the phrase "Make America Great." In a moment of show and tell, Yeezy apparently pulled out his phone and showed the crowd Trump wearing the hat. According to ’Ye, the "Again" part of the MAGA hat phrase was removed because it “hurts Black people.”
Dressed in a USPS vest, Kanye commanded the crowd's attention with details of his visit to the White House and revealed he was headed to Africa before he left the store.
During his meeting with Trump at the White House earlier today, Yeezy shared his thoughts on racism being a device that liberals use to control Black people and revealed he was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder. And there's plenty more.
Of course, the hip-hop community didn't stay silent on the matter. Rappers headed to social media to vent their frustrations with Trump, with T.I. being one of the most vocal. "Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye’& his antics... Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this shit is next level,futuristic Sambo,Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass shit Ye!!!!" he wrote in an Instagram post.
