When TMZ caught up with T.I.at LAX he mentioned (regarding Kanye's comments about slavery) that he disagrees, but does not feel West was being "malicious" with what he said.

In an interview on Tuesday (May 1), West went on TMZ and defended his recent hard embrace of Pres. Donald Trump and a picture in which he posed with a "Make America Great Again" hat.

The subject of Kanye West, and his freaky rants over the past few days, was inevitably brought up when Kris Jenner visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday (April 4). "I'm sure you have a very logical explanation to all this, '" T.I. said.

"So prison", West explained, "is something that unites us as one race, blacks and whites being one race".

The "Yeezus" artist, who is married to Jenner's daughter Kim Kardashian, has garnered a slew of media attention for his recent rants both on and off of social media. After handing Jenner a resume and giving her a desk, DeGeneres began to interview for the position. Jenner said that she is confident the rapper will explain himself in the coming days.

In 2007, to mark the 30th anniversary of Star Wars release date, the Los Angeles City Council declared May 25 as Star Wars Day. Fans chose to celebrate May fourth as Star Wars day as a play on the words, " May the Fourth be with you ".

Since that clears up exactly nothing, she does go on to add: "I think that anything he does-and I just think this is important to say is-he always does things with really good intentions".

West later clarified his views on Twitter, saying: "Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will". Often, defenders of those who say offensive things cite the First Amendment as the protection for those offensive things. "We all hopped on a plane and flew to Cleveland because that's what we know to do". "She's just concentrating on that; just being a mom, her baby..."

The US president was addressing the annual National Rifle Association convention when he made reference to West's controversial support for him. West said. "That sounds like a choice". Normally, I wouldn't care what Kanye West says about slavery or black history.

His comment has had mixed reviews, with Will.i.am claiming to be heartbroken by what he'd said, whereas Justin Bieber showered the rapper with love and support.
