During his Saint Pablo Tour stop in San Jose, California, Kanye West went on one of his infamous rants, which included the pro-Trump one-liner that shocked many of his concert attendees, resulting in boos and a slew of angry tweets from fans. Following the rant, Twitter was flooded with comments on West's remarks, including hip-hop veteran Talib Kweli, who decided to encourage Kanye amid all the criticism by telling the rapper to "come home."

"The ppl gonna ride w you til the wheels fall off for what you've given us," the Brooklyn MC wrote to Kanye on Twitter. "But only if u ride w the ppl. Come back home. Love."

During West's performance, he told the San Jose crowd, "If I voted, I would have voted on Trump," and later carried on his rant at another Saint Pablo stop in Sacramento, where he admitted he was "hurt" by BeyoncĂ©'s win over him at the MTV Video Music Awards, among an array of other topics.

Kweli continued to offer support to West, tweeting, "We love u. U r everything u say u are," before calling the Chicago native a "genius" and "icon".
