Kanye West made headlines in April 2018 when he took to his Twitter account and began expressing what many consider controversial points of view. From Ye's claims that he supports President Donald Trump to his May 1, 2018, interview with TMZ – in which he describes 400 years of slavery as something that "sounds like a choice" – it seems that he's entered a new phase of what it means to be Kanye West.
For some, Kanye West's music trumps any of his political opinions. For others, he's a fashion icon whose music is not as relevant as it once was. Still for others, West is solely Kim Kardashian's husband and the father of her children.
