On Tuesday (May 1), Kanye West unloaded his highly-anticipated interview with Charlamagne Tha God on YouTube. The lengthy sit-down touched on an array of topics, including Ye’s breakdown, his relationship with JAY-Z and Beyoncè and his social media hiatus. While some Twitter users praised Ye for his candor, others held no punches against the Grammy-Award winning star.
Check out some of the reactions below.

Alright Kanye needs to calm down. His actions are screaming mental health issues.

At 32:00 ish in Kanye gets existential and it reminds me what I learned most about Puff working closer to him, observing from distance. To a person that’s conquered the world (and especially over and over ala PD), what is the world to you? You’ve bent it to your will. Now what?

25min into this @cthagod & @kanyewest interview & I’m super intrigued. I’ve always idolized Ye, so to hear from him in this type of personal way is really refreshing… Ye is one of the smartest “celebrities” & the way he speaks is truly empowering! 💯✊🏽

Kanye’s explanation to his “bigger picture” is the equivalent to a ten year olds problem solving skills.

kanye (about trump): racism isn’t the issue for me, in that case I wouldn’t live in america

Kanye wore the #maga hat for equality and the mere presence of the hat is to reinforce the separatism that the mayonnaise want..I need Thanos to snap this nigga to dust

Ebro (Hot 97) said that HE wishes that Kanye’s interview with a star from a rival station, Charlamagne (Power 105.1), was the last we’d heard from Kanye. It’s WAY bigger than the music.

I’m glad Charlamagne did the Kanye interview rather than someone else. He is very skilled in condensing and articulating all of kanye’s concepts and thoughts. This allows kanye to freely speak and get out his thoughts without allowing his lack of eloquence from holding him back.

oh I see now in that charlamagne interview he acknowledges this, which………….yeah, kanye’s gone https://t.co/LJqWWo4hXR
