While some think Kanye West is planning a presidential run in 2020, others argue his political shenanigans are costing him both his career and legacy. Yeezy has been regarded as a Rap God for over a decade. After showing support for President Trump, criticizing Barack Obama and proclaiming slavery was a choice–many are jumping off his bandwagon. But many have expressed concern for his mental health and some fans really want to support him through thick and thin. What do you think?

Kanye stopped by TMZ to express more support for President Trump and to argue slavery was a choice. 

Kanye appeared on the show with Candace Owens where they explained "free thought" and how it can make the world a better place ... from a place of love.
During the conversation Kanye said, "When you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice."
Van from our newsroom took great offense and fired back. Things got intense and ultimately led to a face-to-face at Van's desk.

Many praised the way TMZ's Van Lathan responded to Kanye's comments. According to CNN, Lathan said:

"And while you are making music and being an artist and living the life that you've earned by being a genius, the rest of us in society have to deal with these threats to our lives," Lathan said. "We have to deal with the marginalization that has come from the 400 years of slavery that you said, for our people, was a choice."
"Frankly, I'm disappointed, I'm appalled and, brother, I am unbelievably hurt by the fact that you have morphed into something, to me, that's not real," Lathan concluded.

Many argue nobody could have put it better than Lathan.

And since Kanye's latest rants, many detractors argue he's officially canceled. Good luck with your new album!

Some think Kanye probably recognizes his career is over, and he's just trying to remain relevant. 

But Kevin Hart and others still have hope in Kanye. 

And others fear for his mental health.
