Kanye West has released a new song in which he debates his support of US President Donald Trump with rapper T.I.
- Kanye West and John Legend 'agree to disagree' on Trump
- Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Macy Gray wade into Kanye West outrage
'Ye Vs. The People' was posted online just hours after he dropped his divisive comeback single 'Lift Yourself'.
"I know Obama was heaven-sent, but ever since Trump won, it proved I could be President," West opens.
"Make America Great Again had a negative reception, I took it, wore it, rocked it, gave it a new direction, added empathy, care, love and affection, and y'all simply questioning my methods."
At this point, T.I. cuts in: "What you willing to lose for the point to be proved? This shit is stubborn, selfish, bullheaded, even for you, you wore a dusty ass hat to represent the same views as white supremacy, man, we expect better from you."
Kanye replies "You on some choosin'-side shit, I'm on some unified shit."
He then describes his act of wearing the Make American Great Again cap as being "like a gang truce, like the first Blood to shake the Crip's hand".
'Ye Vs. The People' follows the release of new track 'Lift Yourself', in which he raps "scoop diddy whoop, whoop diddy scoop poop, poopty scoopty, scoopty whoop".
The track ends with the rappers agreeing to disagree.

Earlier in the week West fell out with many of his peers after publishing dozens of tweets about his support of Mr Trump.
The Trump campaign then used West's support in their fundraising texts.
"Group think is a mandate in today's society and when a free thinker like Kanye West speaks truth, they attack him. We support Kanye speaking his mind, even if sometimes we do not agree on the issues. Do not let them silence you. Get your red MAGA hat today," the text sent to Trump campaign supporters read.
West has also shared plans to make a photograph of Jan Adams, the surgeon who operated on his mother the day before her death in 2007, his new album cover. He said he wants to focus on love, to "forgive and stop hating".
