Back in December, Kanye West asked for a 15-minute meeting with President Elect at the time, Donald Trump. He was spotted arriving at the Trump Towers days after his hospitalization. “I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues”, he tweeted. Kanye spoke to the President on supporting teachers and modernizing the curriculum. They also spoke about supporting the movement against violence in his hometown Chicago. “I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change,” he continued. Between Sunday night and Monday morning of this week, Kanye deleted all of his tweets that explained and defended his alliance with Trump.

After the inauguration, the President has been a busy bee within his first 100 days, from staffing his business teams with family members and attempting to get his own fraud trial postponed, to dismissing protests as being unfair, banning refugees and citizens from 7 Muslim-majority nations, withdrawing from the Trans Pacific Partnership’s 12-nation trade deal he has criticized continuously, and removing us from a planned free trade deal. He was also given the green light  to construct the wall along the nation’s southern border that he spoke extensively about during is campaign. If that isn’t enough, everyone knows guacamole is already a wee bit expensive, but now there is an extra 20 percent tax under consideration on all goods coming to the U.S from Mexico.  It’s safe to say that, that was enough for Kanye to change his views.

According to sources last week, Long Island rapper King Myers released a track call  Propaganda, an anti-Trump song. King Myers raps:

 “Let’s use the fruits of our labor to impeach the Prez , We got freedom of speech, we got freedom of press, sometimes you gotta change on ’em so they see you the best.” 

What does the song have to do with Kanye? Well what really stirred the pot was that the song was allegedly produced by Mr. West, but the G.O.O.D music label denied that Kanye had produced the track and any other official involvement with King Myers. Although label representatives declined official comments, King Myers did upload his cover art on his Instagram page of a character from Kanye’s classic album cover “My Dark, Twisted Fantasy.” However, the rapper declined to provide evidence that he was signed to the G.O.O.D music label and instead, uploaded a TMZ clip quoting:

 “Its all #propaganda ….. Aka…. #FAKENEWS stay tuned for details/explanation behind this Genius marketing strategy.

Is it all a publicity stunt from both ends or was King Myers just creative enough to jump on the latest hot Kanye story? Sometimes you just never know with Mr. West.

It’s probably safe to say Kanye and President Donald Trump’s meeting didn’t go as planned. Hopefully, President Trump took Mr. West’s advice on advancing our schools education and supporting our teachers.
