Ya’ll niggas can’t control Ye, that includes Q-Tip (@QtipTheAbstract). If you had a chance to check out the merchandise on Yeezus Tour, some of the clothing on sales has the Confederate flag plastered on it, which has raised many eyebrows.
In an interview, Kanye justified his use of it, as a counter punch and says it was part of the inspiration of the song “New Slaves”.
“The Confederate flag represented slavery in a way. That’s my abstract take on what I know about it, right?. So I wrote the song ‘New Slaves.’ So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. It’s my flag now. Now what you gonna do?”
However, his long time collaborator and label mate Q Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest) has a different take on it and tweeted out these statements. What do you think? is Kamal right or is Kanye doing something we can’t appreciate yet?
