Kanye West Wears “Make America Great Again” Hat in Photo With Music Execs Lyor Cohen and Lucian Grainge
Kanye West has just made a lot of people really upset. Continuing what's been a steady stream of eyebrow-raising tweets, Yeezy uploaded an image of himself rocking President Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hat. Veteran music execs Lyor Cohen and Lucian Grainge are seated right beside him.
Keeping things short and sweet, Kanye included "we got love" in a message with the tweet. Needless to say, a lot of people are upset with Yeezy, and at the rate he's tweeting controversial content, that number is likely to grow.
This is far from the first time Kanye's showed some support to the 45th President of the United States. Back when Trump was first elected, the G.O.O.D. Music boss met with Trump and repeatedly expressed his support for the incoming president. During his nearly constant Twitter rants over the last week, Kanye again put forth his support for Trump.
"You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him," Kanye wrote in one tweet today. "We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."
In a shocking turn of events, Trump quote-tweeted Trump and responded with a show of gratitude. "Thank you Kanye, very cool!"
Adding a dimension to the layers of this story is Hot 97 personality Ebro Darden, who posted a screenshot of the Kanye, Cohen and Grainge's picture onto his Instagram account. In the caption for the post, he refers to the three as "Lucian, Lyor & Lost." It appears that "Lost" could be Kanye.
On a more important note, Ebro writes that Lyor Cohen called him about the entire situation. In what appears to be a quote from Lyor, the 300 Entertainment founder explains that all he's doing is trying to do is support Yeezy.
"Lucian, Lyor & Lost," Ebro wrote. "Note: Lyor just called to say “I JUST WENT TO LISTEN TO MUSIC & see Kanye. He is someone I care about. I don’t abandon people.... Please let people know this. THE MUSIC IS INCREDIBLE! Please let people know that with great music comes, great pain & stress.”
