Eve is "done" with Kanye West.



The 'Let Me Blow Ya Mind' hitmaker has slammed the 40-year-old rapper for being "disrespectful" and urged his fans to listen to other artists' music instead following the 'Famous' singer's controversial comments which saw him seemingly suggest that 400 years of black slavery was a "choice" made by those who were enslaved.

Speaking on 'The Talk', she said: "Every time I watch these clips, I get emotional....it is so disrespectful. I can't understand how a black man that was born on the south side of Chicago can have these ideas...I cannot understand this.

"You want to be a free-thinker, you want to be thought-provoking, you cannot have these ideas without facts to back them up. Slavery is a fact. Slavery is part of our history...we are still feeling the effects of slavery within our community, within our culture. It hurts me.

"We all got lucky and got plucked out of our hoods and live these amazing lives, but you cannot be so far in your bubble to think you are not a part of what this history is.

"This is a man that I actually used to listen to, this is a person that we used to look to as an artist...pick up some Nas, pick up Damian Marley, pick up some J. Cole, pick up some Kendrick Lamar. Listen to these artists. I am done with Kanye."

Meanwhile, despite the 'Bound 2' hitmaker's recent headline-grabbing comments - including his support for controversial US President Donald Trump - fellow rapper T.I. has urged people not to "give up" on Kanye.

Speaking on Hot 97's 'Ebro in the Morning' show: "I'm not [giving up], man.

"We, as the black delegation, we can't afford to lose Kanye West. What you talking about, man? That's a catastrophic loss we're talking about!

"What are we going to get for that? Elton John? Hell nah. I'm not going for that. I've invested too much time."
