Kanye has risen back to the forefront of media head titles after becoming active again in the Twittersphere. Tweeting and discussing topics ranging from supporting the mindset of conservative activist Candace Owens, a splash of inspirational Easter eggs, supporting Donald Trump in some regards like wearing the MAGA Hat, and even going as far as to say that “400 years of slavery sounded like a choice”.
the reason why I brought up the 400 years point is because we can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years. We need free thought now. Even the statement was an example of free thought It was just an idea

As you can infer, Kanye is doing what Kanye does best and that is stirring national conversations. His premise for the tweeting storm? Free Thought. Though I could dive into this topic in more depth, I will table that talking point for a later date, seeing as each day we get more and more very controversial hot takes.
Over the past weekend though, Kanye released two new tracks, “Ye vs. The People” and “Lift Yourself”. “Ye vs. The People” answers the questions for all the controversial tweeting and his promotion for free thought in a conversation with T.I. representing The People. “Lift Yourself” is quite interesting to say the least. Production on it is vintage Kanye, but lyrically, it seems as if it is almost meme worthy. Like, I’m not kidding. You’ll listen to it and you’ll never forget what just came out of his mouth. Almost like a running joke if you will. I’ve included both songs at the end of this blog but on top of that, I’ve also included the one-hour-and-forty-five minute interview of Kanye West and Charlemagne tha god as well.
