While Kanye’s announcement drew ire from most of his colleagues, there was apparently a reason behind the move. West released “Ye vs. the People” featuring T.I. on Friday, a song in which both rappers take opposite sides of the debate in whether to support the president.

“Make America Great Again had a negative reception. I took it, wore it, rocked it gave it a new direction. Added empathy, care and love and affection, and y’all simply questionin’ my methods,” West raps.

“This shit is stubborn, selfish, bullheaded, even for you,” responds T.I. in the song. “You wore a dusty-ass hat to represent the same views. As white supremacy, man, we expect better from you. All them times you sounded crazy, we defended you, homie, not just to be let down when we depend on you, homie.”

If you feel like you’ve been played in West’s charade to stir up some free PR ahead of the song’s release, it’s because you have. And even Trump fell for it, although public praise is low hanging fruit for the insecure president.

In the final verse of the song, Kanye says, “we could be rappin’ about this all day, man. Why don’t we just cut the beat off and let the people talk?”

The people have spoken, and they’re none too pleased with Kanye.
