    Ye and his new album, which was released on 25 October, continue to generate buzz, drawing more and more attention – from fast food restaurant chains to gamers. This time, they won the attention of President Trump’s son.

    Donald Trump Jr has called Kanye West a pioneer and praised his new album in a post on Twitter. West, who actively supports President Trump, recently released his long-awaited album “Jesus is King” - and it has caused quite a stir. The rapper has been accused of ripping off the soundtrack to the popular video game Zelda, resorting to a simplistic approach towards writing lyrics, which was taunted by Burger King, and raised eyebrows when he confessed that he had asked people involved in the creation of the album not to have premarital sex in order to stay focused on their work, as well as opening up about his porn addiction.

    For his part, Donald Trump Jr heaped praise on the rapper, saying “Jesus is King is the epitome of fearless creativity and 'dangerous, unapproved' ideas”.

    ​The businessman was inundated with comments and his post was retweeted more than 21,000 times. Some users suggested that Trump Jr’s endorsement of West and the artist’s decision to quit rap music and pursue a career in gospel is a sign that the star is not in his prime anymore.

    ​Other users defended the artist and urged netizens not to politicise everything.

    ​Other users unconditionally agreed with Trump Jr, praising the artist’s talent and his desire to embrace new genres.

    ​Still others mocked Trump Jr’s description of the album, saying there is nothing new and dangerous in a decesion to release a gospel album.
