The Chicago native had a wide-ranging sit-down with Trump, which saw West bounce from idea to idea about racism, prison reform, mental health and Black people being included in 45’s “Make America Great Again” campaign tagline.
After the highly-publicized lunch meeting, several of West’s colleagues reacted online.
T.I., who collaborated with West on the song “Ye vs. the People” during the summer, had a lengthy response on Instagram where he declared he’d no longer associate with Ye.
“This s— is next level, futuristic Sambo, Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass s— Ye!!!! From what I can gather… This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, Embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen,” Tip said.
He also said West had invited him to join the meeting, which T.I. “naturally” declined.
“You ass kissing and boot licking on a whole new level &I refuse to associate myself with something so vile,weak,& inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!!” he said.
And the Atlanta-based MC wasn’t the only entertainer to slam the meeting. Diddy also chimed in tweeting simply, “Somebody tell this NEGRO to give me a call! #NOTblackexcellence.”
Rapper 50 Cent also gave his input on Instagram saying, “You make me feel like Superman, Obama said l was a idiot f— these n—-s lm wit you Master. Let’s make America great again LOL🤨get the strap”
The caption was accompanied by an illustration of Trump in a Superman cape, carrying a MAGA hat-wearing Ye. West said during the lunch that the hat makes him feel like the superhero and that Trump was a “father figure” to him.
