VIDEO: Kanye West Raps About Charleston Church Shooting At Hot 107.9 Concert
Kanye West rapped about the Charleston church shooting during a freestyle performance at Hot 107.9’s birthday celebration in Atlanta on Saturday. West was singing his song “Black Skinhead” when he decided to talk about racism in the America, and the South Carolina massacre that left nine people dead. Watch the video below.
“I always knew they’d try to tear me down,” sings West as he crouches down on the stage. “I always knew they’d try to tear me… Don’t, don’t, don’t let them make you believe that I’m crazy. That I’m crazy. Don’t, don’t, don’t let them make you believe that I’m crazy, that I’m crazy. I think there’s a couple more things that they owe us. Don’t let them make you believe that I’m crazy.”
He goes on to rap, “See, that’s the magic of racism, it works on itself. We hate each other, shoot each other, kill each other, when we can’t kill nobody else. See that’s the magic of lack of resources, it works on itself. Five hundred n**gas getting pop-pop-pop-pop-pop-popped, and North [sic] Carolina didn’t help. See that’s the magic of racism, it works on itself.”
As Gossip Cop reported, Dylann Storm Roof is believed to be the shooter who killed nine members of Emanuel AME Church on June 17, in what police labeled as a hate crime. Roof was later apprehended in Shelby, North Carolina the morning after the shooting. Check out the video below of Kanye West rapping about the Charleston church shooting, and tell us what you think.
