Kanye West spearheaded astringoffivealbums just a couple of months back, and now he has already rolled out a brand new song called "XTCY".

During Thursday's JKL episode, Kimmel reminded West about his infamous 2005 moment when he said President George W. Bush "doesn't care" about black people during a telethon to raise money for Hurricane Katrina victims.

Kimmel responded: "Not every question warrants an immediate answer".

West added on Thursday that it took him more than a year to gain the confidence to wear a "Make America Great Again" hat in public due to the amount of criticism he previously got because of it. "And then I was hit with the let's go to commercial break". "I wasn't stumped. I wasn't given a chance to answer the question", Kanye tweeted.

The move created a bit of a media storm, and Kanye has since taken to social media to claim he was simply not given enough time to answer, and needed more time to think.

The rapper released his new song "XTCY" on Friday night via a tweet from DJ Clark Kent and the artwork of the track - which featured a shot of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters at Kylie's 21st - was something of a giveaway about the lyrical content. "That interview showed strong personalities with different opinions having a civil conversation".

Do you think Kim will be offended by the remarks about her sisters or is this just Kanye being Kanye?

Kimmel asked the rapper whether he thought the president cared about black people or "any people at all".

West has maintained his vocal support for Trump since the 2016 presidential election.

Kimmel, 50, then asked him if having daughters has made the Gold Digger hitmaker change his views on women. When I see people even, like, go at the president, it's like. why not try love? That was an olive branch.
