Kanye then went on to criticize former President Obama, arguing he did nothing to help people in Chicago. Maybe Kanye could be the one to bring about change?

But what did Kanye ever do for Chicago? He's rich, so he could've helped his community if he wanted to.

Kanye's most recent comments about slavery being "a choice" cause TMZ employee Van Lathan to go off on the rapper.

"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's come from the 400 years of slavery that you said for our people was a choice."

But like Trump, Kanye is motivated by attention, good or bad.
