Article By: Ashia Skye
After Kanye West’s Thursday meeting with Donald Trump, the hip-hop community reacted in mostly disappointment and disgust. Leading the charge, was rapper T.I. The king of the south had some very choice words for Mr. West adter the meeting aired.
“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. Now I recall you asking me to come with you to have this meeting and I declined (naturally)… but bro… if ain’time I would’ve been in there wit you and you behaved that spinelessly in my presence,I feel that I’d be compelled to slap de’Fuq outta you bro For the People!!!” he exclaimed.
50 Cent also had a remark about the meeting betwen Ye and Trump. He posted a photo of Tump depicted as Superman, and he was saving Kanye, who was depicted as Lois Lane.

This is why what Kanye is doing is dangerous. He is putting us directly in the scope of vile racists like @not_reilly1 who say that black ppl who don’t support Trump are slaves on a plantation. Considering the actual history of chattel slavery, this is a VERY racist tweet. https://t.co/RyMT6vU9km— Talib Kweli Greene (@TalibKweli) October 11, 2018
