"I haven't done enough research on conservatives to call myself or be called one," Kanye tweeted today. "I'm just refusing to be enslaved by monolithic thought."

Kanye previously tweeted that he supported Trump and that his "MAGA hat is signed." The president even retweeted the rapper. Yeezy's outburst online followed a breakdown he had in the studio. He also abruptly fired his manager, Scooter Braun.

Now it sounds like Kanye is rethinking his position on things. While he said he wasn't a "conservative," he didn't expand much further. His wife Kim Kardashian has been trying to get through to him, tweeting support for him on twitter. "He never said he agrees with Trump's politics," she wrote.
