Kanye West said on Wednesday that he had fired his manager and suggested he may run for USA president in a frenetic Twitter spree in which he promised four new albums and compared himself to Henry Ford and Walt Disney.
The exchange began after West tweeted on Wednesday that his wife, Kim Kardashian West, had instructed him to make it "clear to everyone" that he doesn't "agree with everything Trump does".
"Black people don't have to be Democrats", Chance, the son of then-Senator Obama aide Ken Bennett, tweeted.
"Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed", West tweeted.
Greg Gutfeld said West's recent tweets are a sign that some people are "leaving the intellectual conformity" many are pigeonholed into.
And Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian-West doesn't appreciate that the tweetstorm has caused people to question her hubby's mental health.
"I love that great, brilliant artists have the power to imagine a better future", he tweeted. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. I guess I agree with 1% of anyone's thoughts though, ' he added.
At least one person didn't seem to mind the attention: Trump, who does not follow West on Twitter, but thanked him for his support.
Trump and West have an ongoing relationship, with the pair meeting in 2016 while the president was on the campaign trail. "He's actually out of the sunken place when he's being himself which is very expressive", Kanye.
Flash forward to November 2016, when West told his audience during a performance after the election that "If I would've voted, I would've voted [for] Trump". Kanye is years ahead of his time.
In incessant, needling tweets much in the style of Trump, the 40-year-old rapper and designer announced two new albums, boasted of sales of his shoe line - and voiced admiration for a conservative television commentator, Candace Owen.
Others, however, had less support for him.
