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 Beyoncé'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".
