West has sparked controversy with his comments about the president, in which he referred to Trump as his ‘brother’ and showed off his signed Make America Great Again baseball cap.

Trump once again praised West after the rapper declared his support for the Republican.

‘Kanye West gets it – when he sees African American unemployment is the lowest in history, you know, people are watching,’ Trump told a crowd of supporters in Washington Township, Michigan on Saturday.

The singer, who is known by the nickname Yeezus, also released a surprise track addressing his recent comments praising Trump.

Photos of the rapper on Friday show him with longer, bleached hair, as he attended Chrissy Teigen's baby shower. He also took a selfie with John Legend after the friends put aside their differences in the wake of the rapper's tweets about President Donald Trump

The song, Ye vs. the People, is a collaboration with rapper T.I. in which the Chicago-born rapper is defending his recent political Twitter rants, while T.I. appears to represent the voices of West’s fans and famous friends who have been on edge in light of his public support of Trump.

West’s song was was released Friday night, just hours after the rapper trolled the internet with the song Lift Yourself – which lacked in lyricism.

He starts the song saying: ‘I know Obama was Heaven-sent/ But ever since Trump won it proved that I could be President,’ and continues going back and forth with T.I.

West even raps about his recent sporting of his signed MAGA hat, saying: ‘Bruh, I never ever stopped fightin’ for the people/Actually wearin’ the hat’ll show people that we’re equal.’
