Kanye West is no longer rocking the MAGA hat, according to Kanye's longtime friend and former G.O.O.D. Music artist GLC.
The Chicago rapper shared the news during an appearance on The Red Pill Podcast with Van Lathan. GLC claimed 'Ye had surrendered his collection of MAGA hats after they had a heart-to-heart several weeks ago.
"[Kanye] actually gave me the boxes of the hats. He said, 'I'm never wearing these again,'" the rapper revealed. "We had a conversation, and I explained it to him, you know, the hurt that was attached to it, and he said he'd never do it again. And that's the word that he gave me."
Though Kanye's affinity for Donald Trump's MAGA gear drew plenty of backlash, GLC said that it also led to positive changes.
"He was like, 'Bro, I'm just tellin' you that we got that amazing woman out of jail in Florida, right? [...] We didn't really get to have that meeting until I put the hat on,'" GLC said. "So he lookin' at like it as, more so, 'OK, I wear the hat, I get the stones thrown at me, I'll have people hating me, but people gonna get free."

It was exactly one month ago when Kanye reiterated his support for Trump, and announced he would wear the MAGA hat at all future performances.
One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black— ye (@kanyewest) January 1, 2019
