There has not been a more divisive symbol than President Trumps MAGA hats. Trump supports wear the hat as a sign of Patriotism while others view it as an icon of intolerance and bigotry.
Virginia rapper and G.O.OD Music president Pusha T was asked about Kanye’s views on the hat. Pusha acknowledged Ye’s freedom of thought but is firmly against his beliefs.
“People are a bit scared to embrace ‘Ye now. Fine, whatever bro. That comes along with saying the controversial shit,” Push explains. “The Make America Great Again hat is this generation’s Ku Klux hood. When was America so great anyways? Name that time period?”
Pusha T also spoke about visiting Yeezy after his appearance on TMZ Live (May 1), where he claimed slavery “sounds like a choice”.
“Where I felt he went wrong. You can’t even paraphrase about situations and issues that are so personal to people. When it comes to death and real-life people and persecution and things where families have been divided, you have to be more careful,” Push suggests. “He’s opinionated, I’m opinionated. He’s a guy who runs off feelings.”
