Swizz Beatz Bashes Kanye West for Wearing MAGA Hat on ‘SNL,’ Previews “F*!k the MAGA Hat” Song
Kanye West's appearance on Saturday Night Live on Sept. 29 has a lot of people talking. But instead of the buzz being about his star-studded performance that included Lil Pump, Kid Cudi, Teyana Taylor and 070 Shake, what the MAGA hat-rocking 'Ye said in support of President Trump after the live show is what has the internet going nuts. Swizz Beatz has had enough of Yeezy's rhetoric and reacted on Sunday (Sept. 30) on Instagram.
One of West's points during his SNL rant was how he gets bullied for wearing his Donald Trump campaign lid. Swizz was not trying to hear it. "I just seen that SNL, Kanye," the New York beat legend said in an IG video, while sitting in the studio. "I hear you talking 'bout you getting bullied for the [MAGA] hat. It feel kinda funny, 'cause we were just talking about the hat less than 48 hours ago. Teyana Taylor was in the studio. Ferg was in the studio. A bunch of people was in the studio. And I was just addressing how uncomfortable the culture feels with you representing somebody that's blatantly hurting our people."
He continued, "We love you, we not bullying you. But you gotta stop. That shit ain't right." He then dropped the needle on an anti-MAGA hat track titled "Fuck the MAGA Hat."
West claimed on SNL that the hat has gotten him a lot of grief. "They bully me. They bullied me backstage. They told me don't go out there with that hat on. They bullied me," he snapped. "And they say I'm in the sunken place. You wanna see the sunken place? OK, Ima listen to y'all now. I almost put my Super Man cape on, cause this means you can't tell me what to do. Follow your heart and stop following your mind."
He doesn't appear to be backing down from the pressure anytime soon.
