During a previous interview, the famous American rapper made a provocative remark about the institution of slavery that existed in North America for some 400 years, where he suggested that slavery was a choice made by black people.

Kanye West has apologized on a Chicago radio station for calling slavery a "choice" during an earlier interview with TMZ.

"I don't know if I properly apologized for a slave comment that made people feel," Kanye West noted.

The rapper later clarified his position on Twitter but deleted the post. 

"I am sorry for people who felt let-down by that comment," he said during the WGCI FM interview.
