He then transitioned to the discussion of race, stating "When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years? For 400 years? That sounds like a choice", he said, provoking looks of stunned silence, then an impassioned rebuke from TMZ's Van Lathan. "Like, you was there for 400 years and it was all of y'all?" "It's like we're mentally imprisoned". "I like the word prison 'cause slavery goes too - too direct to the idea of blacks", he said in the interview.

Kanye West continues his "freedom of thought" campaign and took it to the TMZ office where he shared his belief that "slavery was a choice". Blacks and whites being one race.

As Kanye asked: 'Do you feel like I'm thinking free, ' the man responded: 'I don't think you're thinking anything, it's the absence of thought.' Well said. I'm not trying to say the right thing. You know, like, people, we're taught how think, we're taught how to feel. Even for me, I've learned so much more in the past few days because I'm getting this energy, positively or negatively, agreeing with me, disagreeing with me...

"And really, ever since the Taylor Swift moment, it just, it never, it never had been the same, the connection with radio. It's just an innate feeling I want to express".

T.I.: Hm, yeah, you can, at what cost though? But there is fact and real word effect behind everything you just said, ' he continued.

"You don't have to agree with Trump, but the mob can't make me not love him". In the end, Kanye ends the debate with the equivalent of a shrug: "Why don't we just cut the beat off and let the people talk".

At one point, West defends wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat in after T.I. presses him on the subject.

'Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled, and brother.
