On Thursday (Oct. 6), Ye, better known as Kanye West, appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” for a candid, uncensored interview, in which he discussed why he wore a “White Lives Matter” shirt earlier this week, former President Donald Trump, why he feels Black babies are the main target of abortion providers, and his faith, among other things.

Sitting in his office located in Los Angeles, California, Ye recently returned from the Paris Fashion Week. The successful fashion designer, billion-dollar entrepreneur, and iconic rapper and producer was still wearing a lanyard around his neck from his Paris trip, which he designed and that displays a photograph of a prenatal ultrasound.

Carlson asked Ye what it meant.

“It just represents life and pro life,” the 24-time Grammy Award winner replied.

“What kind of responses to you get,” Carlson wondered. Ye told him, “I don’t care about people’s responses. I care about the fact that there’s more Black babies being aborted than born in New York City at this point; that 50% of Black death in America is abortion. So I really don’t care about people’s response to that. I perform for [an] audience of one, and that’s God.”

The Fox News host laughed and said, “I’m starting to see why they want to make you be quiet.”

Ye shared that he felt the need to really express himself starting in 2016—even more boldly than he’d done before—when people, especially those close to him, told him that his career would be over if he supported Trump.

Giving an example, Ye said some told him that people get killed for wearing a hat that says “Make America Great Again.” Ye further expressed that some of those people threatened his life for wearing slogans that supported Trump.

Ye Discusses Wearing ‘White Lives Matter’ Shirt

“I had someone call me last night and said anybody wearing a ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt is going to be green lit,” a term that describes someone marked for getting a physical beatdown. Ye was referring to a shirt that he and Candace Owens wore at the Paris fashion show, which was quickly met with strong disapproval.

“God builds warriors in a different way,” Ye told Carlson. “I don’t know if it’s because of me being born in Atlanta and growing up on the Southside of Chicago that, you know, [God] made me for such a time like this. It’s like with David, you know, he tended to the sheep. But while he was out there, he had to fight all kinds of animals. So when it was time for Goliath to come, he thought because he was a sheep herder that he didn’t have the skill set to take down Goliath. The thing that I have is the position I have [and] my heart, but the number one thing is we have God on our side. For the people, even if you don’t believe in God, God believes in you.”

Ye explained that he used his gut instinct, his connection with God, and his brilliance to create his “White Live Matter” t-shirt at the Paris Fashion Week, comparing what he did to former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding unconsciously being able to pull off a triple flip because of how much she practiced.

“That’s what’s happening. God is, like, preparing us for the real battles. We are in a battle with the media. The majority of the media has a godless agenda,” Ye said, citing that media outlets like to call him crazy and make jokes about what he says yet stay quiet about real travesties, many of which he is attempting to bring to people’s attention.

Elaborating more on the shirt, Ye shared that his well educated father, a former Black Panther, texted him laughing after seeing his “White Lives Matter” design. Ye responded, “I thought it was funny. What did you like about it?” His father replied, “That a Black Man was declaring the obvious.”
