Kanye West Did Not Produce Anti-Trump Song 'Propaganda'
After Kanye West purged his timeline of Donald Trump tweets, a rapper named King Myers claimed West produced an anti-Trump song called "Propaganda" in his Twitter bio, and was believed to be signed to G.O.O.D. Music. A source close to the situation tells Billboard that West did not produce the song, nor is King Myers signed to the label.
"few weeks ago I told @KanyeWest he needed to be the 1 to take a stand against @realDonaldTrump. None of this is coincidental," King Myers wrote in a series of tweet on Monday, Feb. 6., suggesting that the Chicago rapper had retracted his support for the president.
The song "Propaganda" contains lines like, "I ask Allah how the hell Trump still livin'/ I say and do what I want 'cause I'm a real n---a," and calls for the POTUS' impeachment in light of his recent immigration ban.
Myers added, "all gotta understand how difficult it was for @KanyeWest to publicly show support for @realDonaldTrump & then TAKE IT BACK. He needed help! Me & @KanyeWest both decided that since impeachment is possible, why not call for impeachment at a time when it's needed the most? @potus."
The Long Island MC also urged G.O.O.D. Music president and rapper Pusha T to follow suit.
Last December, the Life of Pablo hitmaker met with Trump at Trump Tower in New York City and later took to Twitter to explain the one-on-one. "I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues," he typed in now-deleted tweets. He added, "I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change."
He also said he didn't vote in the 2016 election, but that he would have cast his ballot for Trump at a Saint Pablo tour stop last November.
According to TMZ, sources claim that West changed his tune about supporting Trump following the president's "Muslim ban."
