💠 Kanye West’s recent meeting with president Donald Trump has been a hot topic in the news lately. As people focus on sound bites and meme-able moments I’d like to offer a review of the points Kanye discussed.
In the ~25 minute video Kanye addresses
Defusing America’s racial tension
Abolishing stop and frisk in Chicago
Stimulating growth in industry
Discouraging partisan-ism in American politics
Kanye offered well founded and two sided perspectives on the issues he discussed, though he was sometimes a bit difficult to follow for the average viewer. I also enjoyed his persisting themes of civic unity, opening opportunities for the lower class, and spreading love. .
It is discouraging that people have been largely overlooking a great discussion based on assumptions and preexisting politics. I’d like to encourage everyone to go watch the full video with an open mind. The best way to form your opinion on these matters is to search out raw content, and facts, rather than accepting the biased analysis of news sources.
I particularly agree with Kanye one issue: divisive thinking will not serve us well as a society, as it prevents meaningful discussion, and fosters fear and aggression.
Do you think Donald Trump is beyond hope? Or should we open our minds and attempt to find common ground?
Would you give Donald a hug? Haha 🤗🤗🤗
You look mad, out here trying to live yo bro's life.

This track is excellent simple-complexity
👉 The 808 rhythm keeps you boppin’ and never leaves a dull moment (perfect for house parties/live shows)
✌️ Simple Caribbean Plucks are super repetitive, but doesn’t feel like that because there are a lot of other elements keeping your attention.
🤟The vocals themselves aren’t very catchy, but the flows are fun to listen to. There isn’t a super-pronounced hook to sing along with, which might make this song a short-lived chart topper. (Although SICKO MODE doesn’t have a repetitive hook either and it’s been staying on top)
✊ Lastly, there’s a lil futuristic synth that comes in towards the second half of Offset’s verse - easy way to add some more to the melody without over-crowding the mix!
🖐 How long do you think it will last at #1 ? I give it a week before it drops from #1 (Spotify US.top.50 is where I watch)
