Balotelli attacks Kanye West for 'bull***t' slavery comments

"I actually don't think you're thinking anything", Lathan said. But I think that context and restraint are very important when you're trying to make a salient point.

And, while Yeezy may be the co-author of "Thank You and You're Welcome", he previously said that he typically stays away from books - especially those of the fictional variety.

Lathan continued: "But there is fact, and real-world, real-life outcome behind everything that you just said".

Jeffrey Q. McCunes, an associate professor of African American studies at Washington University in St. Louis who is writing a book on West, called the rapper's remarks a "hiccup" but said he clearly was speaking of "mental slavery". "I'm appalled, and brother I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something to me that isn't real".

Lathan was applauded on social media as many attacked West's comments. That prompted a number of celebrities to leap to his defense, including Chance the Rapper, another black man, who tweeted: "Black people don't have to be Democrats". "Frankly, I am disgusted and I'm over it. That's where I'm gonna leave it". I understand the need to have free thought. And that honest self is like a fugitive who is trying to be free.

That dichotomy has played out perfectly over the past couple weeks in the form of Kanye West's return to Twitter. "It's like we're mentally imprisoned".

Cut to Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. starring in Seven Years a (Voluntary) Slave in which he crows, "Being a slave was the best choice I ever made".

West revealed to TMZ on Tuesday that he suffered from an opioid addiction after becoming dependent on the pain medications following a liposuction procedure in 2016.

"When I see an outsider infiltrate, I connect with that", West told radio host Charlamagne tha God, adding that he was upset Obama invited other rappers to the White House. West's sudden reiteration of support for President Donald Trump, whom he had briefly connected with during the last presidential election season, surprised many fans. Statements from West that have come under heavy scrutiny recently were released on April 25 and were concerning Trump and the "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) movement.

Kanye West is one of the most iconic, outspoken artists of our generation. No matter how much I disagree, I can say this.

We would have avoided weighing in on this, but we think he did a pretty good job navigating it!

The president quote-tweeted West, saying the tweet was "very cool!"

Nonetheless, West is reportedly working on a philosophy book, the Washington Post reported.
