Kanye Announces Another TMZ Appearance, Calls to Abolish 13th Amendment

Ye, fka Kanye West, proposes we "abolish the 13th amendment," which made slavery illegal in the U.S.

The Artist "Formally" Known as Kanye West tweeted that he'll be making an appearance on TMZ Live on Monday.

"[J]ust reached HARVEY [Levin] we’re going to TMZ 2mrw morning 100 strong. We need strong beings dancers. Unprogrammed to bring love," he tweeted with the hashtag "#wegotlove," which is also the name of the single he premiered with Teyana Taylor on Saturday Night Live's season premiere.

It's been four months since the TMZ appearance that led to the viral moment of him declaring slavery was a choice and Van Lathan's righteous read of 'Ye's antics. Although Lathan joked that he suddenly got the flu after Ye's announcement, he assured his Twitter followers that he'll be in the office when Ye arrives there. (TMZ confirmed that it's happening.)

"It was at this moment I realized I have the flu. Ya'll have fun," read his tweet with a link to 'Ye's announcement. "BTW. I do not actually have the flu. And will be in the office tomorrow, for those whoa re sarcasm challenged. I wish i was sick tho," read his follow-up tweet.

Ye's controversy train doesn't stop there, though. During the aforementioned SNL appearance, the 41-year-old rapper caused a stir when he appeared on stage with a MAGA hat and praised Donald Trump again. He later went to Twitter to explain the choice to wear it.

"[T]his represents good and America becoming whole again," read the tweet next to a photo of him in the MAGA hat. "We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love."

Yes, he absolutely wrote "abolish the 13th amendment," which ended slavery in the U.S. Then, he doubled down on the idea. "[T]he 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise (sic) meaning it never ended. We are the solution that heals," read a follow-up tweet.

For those still waiting, Yandhi, which was promised to come out on Sept. 29, has not come up in his tweets so far.
