Common Doesn’t Seem Fazed by Kanye West Meeting With Donald Trump
Common still has plenty of love for Kanye West. Yeezy angered a lot of people by meeting with President-elect Donald Trump this week, but Common did not feel that way. The Chicago MC shared his support of Kanye, even though he did not agree with the decision to talk with Trump.
"Kanye, that's my brother," Common told TMZ. "That's my family. So, he gonna do what he chooses to do... That's my guy, that's my homie. That's gon' always be my brother, so some things he does, that's what he chooses to do. But I know I'm gonna doing things the way I choose to do 'em, and we gon' do 'em together. That's how love go. That's how people work. Everybody don't always do the same thing to get to same place, but we gon' have to do it together at some point."
Common was a lot more forgiving than John Legend, another longtime collaborator of Kanye. Legend expressed his disappointment with 'Ye in a recent interview.
“I don’t think it’s impossible to talk to [Donald Trump] about issues, but I won’t be used as a publicity stunt. I think Kanye was a publicity stunt,” Legend told French outlet Clique. “I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump. I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country. I think the things he’s promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people, and for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing.”
Kanye claimed his meeting with Trump was an effort to help Yeezy's hometown of Chicago. The rapper's previous support of Trump has made some onlookers question Yeezy's motives though.
