Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is bringing the same old Yeezy into 2019. The hip-hop star has vowed to now perform with his controversial Make America Great hat.
Last night, Ye hopped on Twitter with positive words toward the pro-Donald Trump head apparel.

On his recently released “What’s Free” song, JAY-Z makes a direct reference to Kanye’s love for the Trump hat.
No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye/They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA, uh/I ain’t one of these house n*ggas you bought/My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours/My spou- (C’mon man) (“What’s Free”)
JAY heavily went in on Donald Trump and shared his stance toward Ye’s pro-Make America Great support.
Jay also rejects any comparisons made between him and Kanye West. In the midst of the various controversies Kanye has said and done in 2018, one of the most memorable moments is when he tweeted himself wearing a MAGA hat while later on appearing on Saturday Night Live clarifying his viewpoint on why he embraces wearing the hat: “They said, ‘Don’t go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me backstage. They bullied me! And then they say I’m in a sunken place. You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’m going to listen to y’all now, or I’m going to put my Superman cape on. This means you can’t tell me what to do.” (Genius)
Mr. Carter’s eyebrow-raising bars sparked a flurry of hip-hop co-signs.
