The Beloved MC recently went on his Instagram Live to show off his newly acquired adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 “Static” sneakers. He also added that he didn’t care much about Ye’s love for Trump.
“You can say what you want about Kanye,” he told his viewers. “The nigga ain’t my best friend and I don’t really give a fuck what he do as far as the Trump shit go, but the nigga’s sneakers is fire I don’t care who said they’re not.”
In another clip, East talked about what he deemed as fake public outrage over Kanye wearing the red MAGA hat. “Y’all don’t want to rock Yeezys because he pulled up on Trump with the red hat? I got ‘two pair’, Nelly time on God,” he stated.
On Monday (Jan. 1), Kanye went on his Twitter account to announce that he will resume wearing the MAGA hat throughout 2019. “Trump All Day,” he tweeted, with three dragon emojis to represent the supposed “dragon energy” he shares with President Trump.
“Just so in 2019 you know where I stand, one of my favorite of many things that the trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me who I should do because I’m black. That’s real racism,” he continued. “From now on I’m performing with my mutherfucking hat on.”
President Trump may have caught wind of Kanye’s support for him. During his cabinet meeting on Wednesday (Jan. 3), No. 46 reportedly called the rapper-producer a “smart, good man.”
