UPDATE: The FULL 30 minute Kanye West interview has been released. WATCH it here.

Original post:

Kanye West is officially off his rocker.

Kanye claims that slavery was a “choice.”

In an interview with TMZ, Ye says, “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … for 400 years? That sounds like a choice…”


Kanye also says he became “addicted to opioids” after he had a liposuction procedure done because he didn’t want to look “fat”.

WATCH the interview here:

Just to clarify, Africans were forcibly brought here to the United States against their will  from Africa in absolutely unspeakable conditions during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries and then sold as slaves.

Is Kanye just driving attention to himself to drive sales of his new music he’s been dropping? Or is he like, for real, thinking that?

I guess we’ll see. What do YOU think???
