Kanye West’s recent tear against Black Lives Matter wasn’t a one-off for the rapper and businessman as the second part of his interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson included some choice words about former President Barack Obama’s role as “BLM manager,” acting as a pawn for corporate America.

“Best one ever. Best one ever,” West replied when Carlson asked him to expand on his thoughts during the interview for “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
The stance had been expressed after the rapper had delved into the apparent shift in objectives of stakeholder capitalism where power and influence are more important currencies than obtaining the most wealth. By way of example, West compared Nike to companies he believed are in the top ten including PayPal, McDonald’s and SpaceX.
“So what number company do you think Nike is? The Nike. Number 321. It’s not there to be as big a financial company as it can be,” he argued. “It’s there as an influencer because black people love Nike.”
“So Nike is like a company that is redlining and gerrymandering, black people,” West charged before going into the Gap with whom he recently announced the termination of a partnership. “So the reason why Gap wanted me to go-the Gap-it wasn’t based on, oh, we need to get our stocks up. You know, it’s like these companies when they’ve been around for a long time, Gap’s not like, they’re like, we’re in the rag trade. We’re never going to be Apple. And everyone, all of these American companies somehow took this deal where they start putting in these really awkward, weird number kind of CEOs like Nike’s got one, the Gap had one. It didn’t work out.”
“And there’s all of these weird operators inside of companies, even in Balenciaga, you know. The…they’re just there for control,” he railed.
“Steve Jobs talked about it. It’s the most important thing you can have is control. Look at me,” West began to lament. “All the money, all the influence, and I have to act a complete ass to have any say so of anything that my children are doing, because that group of people have control and say so over all the children inside of the clan.”
“So that’s what these companies are set up for. That’s the type of CEOs they hire, especially when the founders are out of there. They kind of just give the companies up to a bunch of people and they’re all in cahoots. Like anyone that ever worked with me, they just look at, oh, who’s Ye farming for talent that we can hire to be our new BLM office manager,” he suggested before adding, “Like, kind of like Obama.”
After Carlson composed himself from laughing at West’s remark he asked, “You think of Obama as a BLM office manager?”
All smiles, the rapper affirmed, “Best one ever. Best one ever.”
His distaste for BLM and the negative influences the activist movement has had on society was aired out earlier in the week when he posted to social media, “Everyone knows that Black Live Matter was a scam. Now its over. You’re welcome.”

West had “exposed” the inherent nature of BLM after he appeared at a Paris fashion show with conservative podcaster Candace Owens wearing a shirt that read “White Lives Matter,” infuriating race-hustling progressives.
“And you know, I think Obama, just like Virgil,” West added seemingly referring to the late designer Virgil Abloh who died from cancer in 2021, “these people were truly black to their core and truly brilliant to their core, but they went into situations thinking that they could do it the white way as a black man. And we saw what color Obama’s hair was when he went in and we saw what color it was when he went out. You know, Virgil lost all his hair, you know, and eventually passed away.”
The rapper went on to suggest that the only way to make a difference moving forward would be to actively work to change things and be a part of the process, especially if someone like former President Donald Trump whom West has supported were to run again.
“But one thing that has to really happen, say, if Trump ran right,” he said, “we’re not just going to be black influence. We’re going to be vision and creativity.”
