Kanye West, a radically saved Christian, has been taking greasy about the musical genre that made him famous.
According to his pastor Adam Tyson, Ye called rap "the devil's music" and West has been harshly criticizing the excesses of Hip Hop in recent interviews promoting his gospel album Jesus Is King.
Daily Show host Trevor Noah used some of Kanye's old bars to rip him for turning on rap.
“I was watching that, and I was like, are you sh*tting me?” commented Noah. “Like, of all people. I’m not saying everything he’s saying is wrong, but you are gonna say it? You, as Kanye West, are gonna talk sh*t about other rappers talking about buying ‘foreign?’”
“You, as Kanye West? ’I know Spike Lee’s gonna kill me, but let me finish, I’d rather buy 80 gold chains and go ign’ant,” Noah continued. “That Kanye West? Like, are you serious? ‘You’re such a f*cking ho, I love it?’ That Kanye West is gonna talk sh*t about rappers f*cking bitches?’”
Noah also had some words about Kanye's comments that the democrats had "brainwashed" black people into voting for them.
“OK, let me get this straight. So you’re saying that every Black person in America is brainwashed? You’re saying that 70, 80, 90% of Black people who are voting Democrat, they’re brainwashed?” he asked. “ So you’re saying you’re the only person who’s enlightened, and all these Black people are stupidly following this Democratic-victim ?”
“What is more likely?” Noah asked. “The fact that these people are brainwashed, or the fact that, in America, you have to vote for the system that gives you the best chance? You only have two choices, and that does make it weird, but you only have two choices, and if you are a Black person you go, well, I’m going to vote for the choice that gives me the best chance of success.”
