T.I. would have slapped Kanye West for this reason

T.I. used a lot of big words to blast Kanye West for meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House.

During his trip to the White House, Kanye gave praise to Trump by saying, “Let’s stop worrying about the future, all we have is today.… Trump is on his hero’s journey right now.”

T.I. wrote an open letter on Instagram to share why Kanye made a horrible move by meeting with Trump.

“Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about [Kanye] Ye and his antics,” T.I. wrote. “Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this s– is next level,futuristic Sambo, Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django a– s– Ye! From what I can gather, this is the most repulsive,disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation and 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 [anytime] 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 the f— outta you bro, for the people! You a– kissing and boot licking on a whole new level and I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak, and inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE! I’m a true believer in ‘It ain’t what you do, it’s how you do it.’ And this s– is regurgitating! At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you. Now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you. To all the people who follow Ye musically, socially, or even personally. Who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated…. Let me make this clear… THIS S– AINT COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! THIS IS A PLAY TO PUT HIM IN A POSITION HE’D LIKE TO SEE HIMSELF IN…WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS. Don’t follow this puppet. Because as long as I’ve lived, I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world, if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr. West’s soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop,I’m officially DONE!!!! Trump & his Lil Cookie Boy.”
