Kanye West shocked pretty much everybody (or nobody) when he was spotted walking into Trump Tower to meet with Donald Trump Tuesday morning. 'Ye showed up with some of his crew and a videographer since we all know that the rapper documents everything to potentially put it together for a film one day.

"We've been friends for a long time," Trump told the cameras seemingly after their meeting when both came down to the tower lobby to talk with press. Trump went on to add that the pair discussed "life." For his part, Kanye remained completely silent and did not answer any questions.
There is no official word on what 'Ye was sitting down with the President-Elect to discuss, but the word still spread fast and the internet lost it. Speculation about his meeting ranged from everything to a cabinet position to a fake cabinet position, and more. One Twitter user wrote, "Trump and Kanye have confirmed their collab album in response to JCole and Kendrick's album announcement." LOL. Check out some of the people's reactions to this meeting below.

KANYE: Nothing in life is promised except death.
TRUMP: [Picks up phone.] Get me Mad Dog.
Smh Kanye. He sees Trump's an unprecedented character as president and just has to make himself part of it. A genius and a world-class clown— Jackson Yates (@RedFlagNYC) December 13, 2016
