Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has taken a full 48 hours to finally address why he went silent during his “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” interview. Yeezy relied on social media this weekend to provide some context to keeping his lips sealed when asked a question about President Donald Trump‘s policies.

Ye went to Twitter Saturday (August 11) and addressed headlines suggesting talk show host Jimmy Kimmel stumped him.

This week, Hot 97 radio veteran Ebro Darden completely lit up Kanye following his TV appearance.

Thursday night, Kanye explained why he wouldn’t hide his love for the Trumpster but also went silent when questioned about the head of state’s recent policies.

“You know, it’s funny, in this world that we live in there’s two main motivating forces. I tweet about it all the time: love and fear. You can’t explain love. My cousin is locked up for murder. I love him, he still did a bad thing but I still love him. Just as a musician, African-American guy out of Hollywood, all these different things, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me and then told me every time I said I liked Trump I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over, I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks are only supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only be Democrats.” (“Jimmy Kimmel Live!”)

Recently, Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy refused to dig into Ye’s support for Trump.

“Nah, I’m good. I’m good,” Puffy said when asked for his take on Kanye/Trump becoming publicized fans of one another. “I wouldn’t make a good president. I wouldn’t really pass any of the things that you have to pass, but I guess Trump did it . . . But no, I like doing what I’m doing. I don’t know if I could be responsible for the whole country.” (“Jimmy Kimmel Live!”)
