Kanye West is reportedly writing a book of philosophy entirely on Twitter, going on an off-putting rant this weekend that included the “Jesus Walks” rapper showing support to conservative activist and Black Lives Matter critic Candace Owens

Hot 97’s Ebro Darden later took to the airwaves to share a conversation he had with the Chicago native in which he called out the designer for supporting figures such as Owens, who work against the Black community’s best interest.

West allegedly responded, saying he supports Owens mainly because “she’s challenging conventional Black thought.” He also went on to say he loves Donald Trump, mentioning that the businessman was willing to have a meeting while former President Barack Obama wasn’t.

Hear the full breakdown from Hot 97 below.

West later called into the morning show, not to defend himself, but to simply tell the radio jock, “I love you,” several times, and that he’d prefer they speak in person before having a conversation on air.
