Mr. West was at it again on Saturday morning when he released his new single "XTCY".

During the frank chat on the TV host's show, he asked Kanye whether he felt Donald Trump cared about black people.

Earlier in the interview, West said of his feelings toward Trump, "Just as a musician, an African-American guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me".

"Not every question warrant an immediate answer". According to the letter - obtained by TMZ - Kanye will have full artistic control.

"Liberals can't bully me; news can't bully me; the hip-hop community, they can't bully me". I got more of 'em/ You got a sister-in-law you would smash? "That's what makes Ye", West said.
