The rapper and designer on Tuesday said on Twitter that he plans on “distancing” himself from politics, alleging he’s being “used to spread messages I don’t believe in.”
“I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative!!!” he wrote.
Kanye West, who has been heavily criticized for supporting President Donald Trump, has now announced he’s distancing himself from Politics while admitting he has been used to spread messages he doesn’t believe in.
The rapper made the shocking announcement on Twitter on Tuesday, and also revealed that he’s now focusing on being creative.
The announcement comes after the father of three debuted a line of apparel for the “Blexit” campaign that encouraged African-American voters to abandon the Democratic Party.
In one of the tweets today, Kanye denied any real connection to “Blexit” merchandise, saying :
“I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they didn’t want their name on it so she used mine.”
His attempt to separate himself from the political conversation comes one month after a rant about Trump after his “SNL” performance caused a new wave backlash against the outspoken musician, who has made a string of controversial and inflammatory comments in recent months.
In his tweets on Tuesday, West expressed appreciation for those who have stood by him.
“I would like to thank my family, loved ones, and community for supporting my ACTUAL beliefs and my vision for a better world,” he added.
