Rapper Calls On Gangs To Attack Kanye West After Trump Comments

(DCNF) Kanye West may need to watch his back next time he hits the town in Los Angeles after a rapper called on the city’s gang members to assault him because of his support for President Donald Trump.

The threat came over Instagram from Daz Dillinger, a former member of Snoop Dogg’s 1990s rapping entourage, Tha Dogg Pound duo.

“Yo national alert, all the Crips out there, y’all f— Kanye up,” Dillinger said, referring to the infamous Los Angeles-area street gang.

The video also features Dillinger (real name Delmar Drew Arnaud) warning West to not enter Long Beach and California generally, suggesting the famous hip-hop artist stays in the wealthy Calabasas.

“Better not ever see you in concert. Better not ever see you around the LBC. Better not ever see you around California,” the video continues. “Stay in Calabasas, ya hear me? Cuz we got a Crip alert for Kanye.”

The video has since been removed.

West generated considerable controversy last week when he started posting a series of tweets on April 25 expressing his admiration for Trump.

“You don’t have to agree with Trump, but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy,” West wrote in a tweet last Wednesday. “He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

Another tweet by West showed a picture of an autographed “Make America Great Again” hat.

Donald Trump Says He Hopes to Run for President Against Kanye West

At Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West announced that he intends to run for president of the United States in 2020.

Though the start of the 2020 election cycle remains in the distant future, The Washington Post notes that 24-year-old Maryland Republican activist Eugene Craig, whose Facebook page lists him as a former member of Youth for Ron Paul 2012, has already started a serious super PAC called “Ready for Kanye” dedicated to promoting the rapper, songwriter, and producer’s candidacy. Craig, a fan of West’s music, said that he would support West if he runs as a Republican and if there is no Republican incumbent in 2020.

Following West’s announcement, Rolling Stone asked Donald Trump, whose presidential candidacy has been compared to West’s, to comment on it. Said Trump, “I was actually watching. I saw him do it, and I said, ‘That’s very interesting. I wonder who gave him that idea?‘”

He added, “[Kanye’s] actually a different kind of person than people think. He’s a nice guy. I hope to run against him someday.

Trump’s affinity for West appears to stem from a personal relationship between the two. “Well, he’s said very nice things about me in the past, and he knows my daughter a little bit — Ivanka. And, he’s said very good things about me — very very, extremely positive things,” said Trump.

The market research firm Echelon Insights has already conducted a 500-person poll via Google Consumer Surveys to test West’s theoretical candidacy against Donald Trump and found that Trump led West “38-21 with 41 percent undecided.

During the interview with Rolling Stone, Trump joked that he had already lost his first supporter to West. “Miley Cyrus said, ‘Oh, I was going to vote for Trump but now I’m voting for [Kanye].’ So it sounds like she was all made up for me, and he took her away.
