Kanye West’s “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” comment heard around the world is still a point of contention even five years after the incident. ‘Ye’s statement created debate among Americans, some praising him for his candidness, others berating him for it. This year, Kanye backed off of those words, even apologizing to the former president. However, Jay-Z recently told the Associated Press that he still supports ‘Ye’s statement.

“I 100 percent agreed with the comments that he made, because again…it felt like it was being done to black people,” he said. “Like all you saw on the news was black people with help signs and all this stuff, and then you have this picture of the commander-in-chief, who we all rely on, just flying by.”

George Bush recently said that Kanye West’s infamous statement was one of the lowest points of his presidency, to which Jay-Z says is ridiculous.

“Just the fact that he thinks that the worst thing that happened to him is Kanye saying something about him. Like, what? That alone shows you where his mind is. Are you kidding me?”

Jay-Z is currently out promoting his new book Decoded.
