Kanye West dropped his new album, "Ye," on Friday and fans are...conflicted.
The 7-track record filled with deeply personal reflections on his mental state and family is garnering generally positive reviews as it dominates Twitter chatter, but comes just weeks after he ranted and raved on TMZ that slavery was "a choice."
"When you hear about slavery for 400 years... That sounds like a choice," he said on "TMZ Live" at the start of May. "You were there for 400 years and it's all of y'all. It's like we're mentally imprisoned."
Some fans (turned haters) are not about to forget that and consume his new music, while others are happy to move on and embrace "Ye," and some are simply torn.
See Twitter's conflicted reaction to the new music below:
Kanye's visit to Trump Tower, his MAGA hat, "slavery was a choice," his "reclaiming of the Confederate flag" to sell merch, his disrespect of Rhymefest & Donnie.....
Y'all let all that go. For an album released in the middle of nowhere. I don't ever want to be that kind of Stan.
Y'all are so easily sidetracked & brainwashed... Y'all was just going in on Kanye West and Kim for their ignorance! Now that his album is out, y'all are hyped to buy and listen to his music just to join in on the social media hype.
For someone to say ... “Slavery was an option.” Every black person who so called “CANCELED” Kanye West and didn't agree with that ignorant statement should not be listening or supporting a damn thing of his! PERIOD!
Btw I never “cancelled” Kanye. When he did all the MAGA stuff I didn't care. You know why? Because music is music. If you cancelled every artist based on their personal beliefs you probably wouldn't listen to any music period.
Y'all idiots if y'all don't listen to Kanye album only because of his views on politics, which y'all really don't know that well in the first place y'all only know what twitter told you, I listen to @kanyewest for MUSIC not his political views he's an artist not politician
