In an extensive interview with Charlamagne the God on Tuesday, embattled rapper Kanye West says he's "in a stronger place than I ever was".

"Me putting the hat on forces an evolution", Kanye says at one point. And when I wear that hat, it's like a fight for equality.

Another tweet by West showed a picture of an autographed "Make America Great Again" hat.

"To break the class system, we have to start by loving ourselves", said West. "The class war is one of the reasons why Trump won". West touched on some of the controversial statements he's made over the past week, including his thoughts on Donald Trump, and created some new ones along the way, including his thoughts on slavery. "We good. We texting each other, it's positive energy", said West.

West also recently appeared in a behind-the-scenes video posted to his YouTube account in which he explains his support for Trump to rapper T.I. "Half the sh*t Trump does, I do not agree with". TMZ reporter Van Lathan shot back at West, expressing his disappointment in his recent comments, sparking a debate with him across the office.

"I don't want to seem ungrateful, I just think that if in fact this conversion to love is genuine on your part... then it's inappropriate to drag the negativity of the past with it".

He later asked the newsroom: "Do you feel that I'm being free and I'm thinking free?"

"When he handed [the pills] to me, he said, 'You know, this is used to kill genius.' Right, so I didn't take it", Kanye revealed. "Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled and I am unbelievably hurt that you have morphed into something, to me, that is not real". I understand they was going through some things, but if it's family", as the two have figuratively professed to be, "you're not going to miss a wedding. "For 400?! That sounds like a choice." said Ye.
