T.I., Meek Mill, Lupe Fiasco, Snoop Dogg & More React To Kanye West's Slavery Statement

Following Kanye West’s latest batch of controversial remarks, the response from the general public has been unsurprisingly swift.

Members of the Hip Hop community have also been quick to voice their thoughts on Ye’s statement that 400 years of slavery sounded like “a choice.”

Shortly after making the statement, Kanye hit Twitter in an attempt to clarify his words and lamented that he was being attacked for his ideas.

A new report from TMZ also cites an anonymous source close to Kanye suggesting that his comments could be a result of him going off his medication. Kanye’s reportedly supposed to be taking three unspecified pills a day, but the source said he’s self-regulating his doses and only taking one or two pills a week.

Atlanta lyricist T.I., who appears alongside Kanye on the recently released “Ye vs. The People,” was left wondering “WTF” after seeing a clip of the Chicago musician on TMZ on Tuesday (May 1).

“Yoooo WTF bro!?!?!?I’m scratching my head like a muuuufucka now cuzz!!!!,” T.I. wrote in an Instagram caption to a video clip of Kanye.

Yoooo 🤯😱😳 WTF bro!?!?!? I’m scratching my head like a muuuufucka now cuzz!!!!

Newly free Meek Mill quoted Kanye lyrics from 2007’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” and shared a photo of Kanye with the words “R.I.P. ‘Old’ Kanye.”

During an appearance on Good Morning Britain, will.i.am flat out stated that Kanye’s slavery comments strongly impacted him given his family’s history.

“That broke my heart,” will.i.am said. “Cause I thought about my grandma who was born in 1920. And her connection with her mom who raised her, who was born in the late 1800s. And my grandmother’s grandma who was a slave. And when you’re a slave you’re owned. You don’t choose if you’re owned.”

Snoop Dogg, who has previously called out Kanye over his behavior, briefly addressed the rapper’s latest remarks.

“That nigga crazy, huh? Opioids. Wow,” an animoji version of Snoop said via Instagram.

Lupe Fiasco also offered his own take on slavery being a choice, stating that “Slavery was a choice. Because you either had the choice of death or work.”
