West had made a taped appearance at TMZ's headquarters after Tuesday's release of an nearly two-hour-long interview with The Breakfast Club's Charlamagne Tha God, conducted at West's California home last month. From saying on national TV that "George Bush doesn't care about black people" during Hurricane Katrina to jumping on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards to interrupt Taylor Swift's acceptance speech, the rapper has a history of outlandish public comment.
Mr West took to Twitter afterwards to clarify his comments. However, he did make it clear the company will talk to the 40-year-old about the issue. "It's like we're mentally in prison".
After West's comments went viral, Sensabaugh, who is running as an Independent for mayor of Sullivan County, Tennessee, told TMZ Sports that he agrees with West's comments on slavery.
"We can not comment on every single comment or external creators are making".
In all honesty, I had finished a column on Thursday praising Kanye for coming back to Twitter and sharing more of his art with the world. Why would someone that has so much put himself in such harm's way and in the direct line of fire?
If you look at our overall numbers, previous year we did nearly $25 billion, we're a very large company.
"While you are making music and being an artist and living the life that you've earned by being a genius, the rest of us in society have to deal with these threats to our lives", Lathan told him during TMZ Live.
And while Kanye's collaborator T.I., real name Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., disagrees with the majority of the rapper's political views, he said in an interview on radio station Hot 97 on Wednesday that he believes the father-of-three is "doing something that none of us understands". You know from a revenue standpoint less so, but it's a very important part of how we promote our products, particularly in the USA and other parts of the world. I would never want a book's autograph. "There clearly are some comments we don't support", he said, according to the report.
