American rapper Kanye West (officially changed his name to Ye) wanted to give the name “Hitler” to his album, which was released in 2018 and was eventually called “Ye”. This was told by four sources CNN.

Why West changed his plans for the title, they don’t know.

A man who used to work with West and quit after complaining about a hostile workplace environment said the rapper talked about reading Hitler’s book Mein Kampf and admired how propaganda was used in Nazi Germany.

“He praised Hitler, saying how incredible it is that he was able to concentrate so much power in his hands, and talked about all the great things that he and the Nazi Party have achieved for the German people,” a source told CNN, adding that West’s inner circle knew of his interest in Hitler.

A few weeks ago, former TMZ journalist Wen Latang, who in 2018 criticized West for saying in an interview with TMZ that 400 years of slavery in the US was a “choice” for black people, declaredthat West mentioned Hitler even then.

“He said something like: ‘I love Hitler, I love the Nazis. Something like that when he was there. And they took it out of the interview for some reason. It was not my decision,” says Lathan.

Kanye West became the hero of a series of scandals this fall. In early October, he appeared wearing a “White Lives Matter” T-shirt, a reference to the Black Lives Matter movement’s name. He also hinted in an email with rapper Sean Combs that he was controlled by powerful Jews and tweeted that he was going into “lethal mode against the Jewish people.”

West was accused of anti-Semitism. Cooperation with him was stopped by Adidas brands, Balenciaga and Hollywood agency CAA. Twitter and Instagram imposed restrictions on the rapper’s pages. After that, West decided to buy the Parler social network, which is known as a platform for supporters of former US President Donald Trump (West himself expressed support for him).

This week, Twitter was bought by billionaire Elon Musk, after which the social network removed restrictions from West’s account. Previously Musk declaredthat he expressed his “concern” about his statements about Jews on Twitter to the rapper.
