In a sit down with Bloomberg Politics' John Heilemann for "With All Due Respect," Q-Tip revealed what he thinks about Kanye West's recent hospitalization and the comment he made at his Saint Pablo concert that he "would have voted for Donald Trump."
"That's my brother," Q-Tip began. "I just uh...It's difficult because I love him. That's my brother, you know what I'm saying? I reached out to him and I'm hoping that we just get to talk. I just probably will leave it there because I really care about that dude, but his remarks are something that require he and I having a real serious discussion."
Kanye appears on A Tribe Called Quest's recently released and final album, We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service. The politically charged album served as the base for Q-Tip and Heilemann's conversation where they also touched on the rapper's own thoughts about President-Elect Trump and Dave Chapelle suggesting during SNL that we give him a chance.
"I guess we have no choice but to give him a chance, right?" responded Q-Tip. "The platform he ran on is very scary. It's extremely polarizing, it's divisive, it's not necessarily inclusive, and it's dangerous, and it's one that brings about an almost absolute fear. Given those kind of signifiers, I wouldn't give someone like that a chance per se, but the actuality of the situation is he is the president and people voted for him, although I didn't vote for him. He's incumbent and he's my president now."
