You know, it's like we're mentally in prison.

These were the words of one of the world's greatest philosophers, reggae legend Bob Marley in his 1975 song with The Wailers titled No Woman, No Cry.

Khalil Gibran Muhammad is professor of history, race and public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, Suzanne Young Murray professor of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and author of The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime and the Making of Modern Urban America.

Whatever the case, as a person with a huge platform and near limitless resources, it is Kanye's responsibility to avoid spreading misinformation. "We are both dragon energy".

Kanye West's struggles with mental health have been well documented.

On April 15, West returned to Twitter and began what since has seemed like an endless barrage of tweets. "OUR ancestors built this country (on land stolen from the Native Americans) from the ground up under the institution of SLAVERY". "But if would've voted, I would've voted for Trump".

The Detroit hip-hop station is not alone.

Republicans who had heard about West's tweets held an 18-point net favorable view of the rapper while Republicans who hadn't heard about his tweets reported a 43-point net unfavorable view of West.

After all, Trump started off as a business man in the same way Kanye started off as a musician.

Black male support for President Donald Trump doubled in just one week, according to a Reuters poll on presidential approval. Dillinger himself shared the news with his fans.

"Our job is to love, not to always agree!", Bieber wrote in an Instagram story, adding: "Love you Kanye!".

Writer-professor Roxane Gay on Twitter: "He is not a free thinker. It's my flag now". I'm not going to say his name can you think about? Kanye and I are no different.

"Kim read about Alice on social media and privately arranged for a high profile criminal defense attorney to be her lawyer, including paying her legal fees", one source explained. "After the breakdown, or I like to say, the breakthrough".

And celebrity is a helluva drug.

In a recent episode of Lathan's podcast, The Red Pill Podcast, (published on May 1, before the live interview) he elaborated on his issues with the new Kanye. Although Yusef admits the comments were hurtful, he believes West could have made a more sound argument if he had time to develop his thought.

It seems he was only getting started down the path of a 'trustless society' concept.

West defected from Nike (nke) to Adidas (addyy) a few years back, and designs the Yeezy range for the German brand. "You were there for 400 years and it's all of y'all".
