Is Kanye Done?

Rapper Claims To Be Finished With Politics

Kanye West never seems to be at a loss for words, and it’s his words that seem to keep him in the spotlight. His headlining comments range from supporting Donald Trump to calling slavery a choice to supporting Trump even more.

Recently, West posted several tweets saying that he was being “used” to spread messages that he didn’t believe in, and in response he is stepping away from politics. Many of his tweets were clarifying what his actual beliefs were, and essentially saying that he wasn’t as much of a hardcore Trump supporter as everyone thought he was.

This was surprising considering a couple of weeks ago he was just at the White House kicking it with Trump. This meeting between the two men was made up of West ranting about various issues while touching on prison reform, how he doesn’t actually suffer from bipolar disorder, and how automaker Ford should design the “dopest” cars. That seems all over the place, right? And this whole entire West situation is just that.

West is really confusing and contradicting as a person of social standing. He goes on Twitter rants and makes super irrational and insane statements all the time, but then switches to posting really wholesome things about his family or Chicago. It really makes me wonder if this is just another phase for him. Is he really being genuine or is he just saying this to get rid of some of the hate? I guess we’ll have to wait to see if this new West act will last.
