Kanye West Freestyles Wearing Trump Signed MAGA Hat

Rapper Kanye West dropped bars while wearing a hat that boasted President Donald Trump's signature and campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again," Wednesday. 

West, 40, invited TMZ founder Harvey Levin to his office after a source told the publication the rapper was behaving erratically. Upon his arrival, Levin was treated to a freestyle performance by West.

"Hopped off the Amistad and made I'm a God. It's always a litigation when I'm involved," he rapped while wearing the MAGA hat. "See, I say what they say when the mic is off. Parents are the strippers, strip kids of their confidence. Teach white dominance. Question your common sense."

West angered fans after sharing his admiration for Trump Wednesday. "You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him," he tweeted before sharing pictures of his MAGA hat. "We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."

Thousands of fans slammed the rapper online, with some questioning his "mental health." Kim Kardashian West came to her husband's defense. "To the media trying to demonize my husband, let me just say this...your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary," she tweeted Wednesday. "So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair."

West confirmed on April 19 he's preparing to release a seven-track album June 1. It's unclear if his improvised freestyle will make the cut, but he announced his plans to release a joint album with fellow rapper Kid Cudi June 8. The collaborative record is titled Kids See Ghosts, which doubles as the duo's name.

West's last album, Life of Pablo, was released in February 2016. While touring in promotion of the record, he allegedly exhibited erratic behavior, including his support for Trump. He canceled his remaining 21 concert dates in November 2016. The rapper was hospitalized shortly after that for exhaustion
