RZA Weighs in on Kanye West Meeting Donald Trump
"Trump is the president, you know what I mean? We're gonna have to talk with him, deal with him, build with him," the rapper/producer/actor -- who noted that he hadn't spoken to West in a long time -- told TMZ. "If Kanye willing to speak for our community, bong bong."
RZA's comments come after John Legend expressed his disappointment in West. “I don’t think it’s impossible to talk to him about issues, but I won’t be used as a publicity stunt and I think Kanye was a publicity stunt. And I’m pretty disappointed with Kanye, that he says he would have voted for Trump,” Legend said during an interview with Clique.
West met with Trump in New York City on Tuesday morning (Dec. 13) and tweeted several hours after leaving Trump Tower, "I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues. I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change." Trump also gifted West with an autographed Time magazine and a message that read: "To Kanye, you are a great friend."
