He said: "When you hear about slavery for 400 years".

That is a phrase that I've heard a lot - both from Trump supporters prior to the election and from Trump sympathizers in the almost year and a half since.

From what he said during his impromptu speech, it seems he was only "drugged the fucked out" for a couple of days, the rant has us a little shook about whether or not he's fully recovered from the ordeal. When asked what he thinks caused his breakdown, Kanye answered candidly, "Fear, stress, being in control, manipulation, like being a pawn in a chess piece of life". "For 400 years? That sound like a choice.It's like we're mentally imprisoned".

West's remarks immediately sparked an uproar on Twitter, his favorite medium, and he was taken to task live by a TMZ employee who said he was "appalled".

He added: "They cut our tongues so we couldn't communicate to each other. I will not allow my tongue to be cut", the rapper continued.

It's been a rough couple of weeks for the 40-year-old rapper as he gets heat for various controversial statements on Twitter, including an unwavering appreciation for President Donald Trump. "But there is fact, and real-world, real-life effect behind everything that you just said", Lathan said.

Kanye's controversial comments came during a Live chat with TMZ, when hee voiced a freaky opinion that the 400 years of slavery suffered by black people was a "choice".

During the TMZ interview, Kanye also defended his support of Donald Trump, calling him "my boy", despite the outrage he caused with his Twitter storm about he U.S. president last week. But it was his comments about slavery that sparked immediate outrage.

At one point, West talked about Trump, saying that the fact that he became president meant that anything is possible in America.

"It's a far-cry from the Kanye West we knew who made the song 'Crack Music, ' which made a link between slavery, the prison industrial complex and the rise of crack cocaine used in the black community".

He then lamented that he felt a certain freedom in "doing something that everyone tells you not to do", as if this rebellious desire was justification for his Trump support.

The rapper went on to claim that he was "once again" being "attacked for presenting new ideas".
