Last week, Kanye West released a new song called “Ye vs. the People” featuring T.I. shortly after releasing “Lift Yourself.” The track explores Kanye West’s controversial opinions, including his apparent support of Donald Trump. Now, T.I. has spoke about the collaboration in an interview with Ebro in the Morning. Check it out above.
“I think he’s a phenomenal talent of our generation that deserves to be heard and considered,” T.I. said of Kanye. “No matter how preposterous it may be — I disagree with it emphatically.”
“We gotta realize – this is Kanye West we’re talking about here,” T.I. added. “Ain’t but maybe 1% of the people in the population of the Earth that speak the language of Kanye West. The problem is, the stuff that come in his head, when it actually come out his mouth and make its way to the air, it’s totally different than it was in his head.”
Aside from Kanye West, the recent Tony award nominee also opened up about his personal life, Gucci Mane, gun laws, and more.
