TMZ caught up with the Blood-affiliated rapper and asked about Daz calling on Crips to "f*** up" Kanye on sight after re-professing his love for Trump.

West said the infamous "moment" he stormed the stage while Taylor Swift was accepting an MTV Award in 2009 led to radio stations ditching his music and affecting his career.

Rapper Kanye West on Tuesday during an appearance on the entertainment website TMZ Live said the "class war" is one of the reasons Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016.

In the "making of" video, West tells T.I. that Trump's "ability to do what no one said you could do, to do the impossible is the most inspiring thing to me". "Trump is one of rap's favorite people".

During a Live chat with TMZ, Ye voiced a freaky opinion that the 400 years of slavery suffered by black people was a "choice".

Rams Trade WR Tavon Austin to Cowboys
When the Rams surged to the NFC West title past year after 10 straight losing seasons, Austin didn't play much of a part. Used mainly as a decoy, Austin only caught 13 passes and put up just 317 total yards of offense.

Realising his comment was probably just a tad triggering, he tried to explain: 'It's like we're mentally in prison. Even for me, I've learned so much more in the past few days because I'm getting this energy, positively or negatively, agreeing with me, disagreeing with me...

"People were taught how to think, we're taught how to feel". Y'know, there'll be mistakes, there'll be flaws the way I communicate today, because we're human beings, we're flawed. And it's fascinating to see T.I., in a sort of disapproving-wise-uncle role, attempting to remain cordial with West while at the same time letting him know that what he's doing is wrong.

"I just love Trump, that's my boy", he added. But there is fact and real word outcome behind everything you just said, ' he continued.

"Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled, and brother I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something that for me, is not real".

West then walked over to Lathan's desk, saying, "I'm sorry I hurt you", while Lathan reiterated, "Bro, you've got to be responsible. For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice", he said.
