Kanye West is stepping away from politics.

West took to Twitter Tuesday (Oct. 30) where he declared that he will focus on his craft and not on political rhetoric.

“My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in,” the “Yeezus” rapper wrote.

“I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!”

West, who has been a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, went on to reiterate his beliefs: love and compassion for the world.

“I support those who risk their lives to serve and protect us and I support holding people who misuse their power accountable,” he wrote.

“I believe in love and compassion for people seeking asylum and parents who are fighting to protect their children from violence and war.”

West also slammed pundit Candace Owens for adding his name on a project about Blacks leaving the Democratic party called “Blexit.” West —who has previously compared the party to a plantation — said he introduced Owens to a person who didn’t want their name associated with Blexit.

“I never wanted any association with Blexit,” he wrote. “I have nothing to do with it.”

West’s public declaration comes just one week before the release of his new sneakers the Zebra Yeezys, which is set to drop on November 9th.

A report by VOX shows that West’s sneakers are easily available, a stark difference from the days when they would sell-out almost immediately.

West’s endorsement of President Trump has proved to be detrimental to his brand, including many of his hip-hop peers speaking out against him.

It was also reported that West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, has received a slew of death threats as a result of her husband’s actions.

Media But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness.

No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful.
