Kanye West has always had insightful opinions regarding the black community. Most notably, the world was stunned when Ye claimed that slavery was a decision made by Africans in America hundreds of years ago, rather than being forced upon them. Now Ye has another bold claim to lay down.
Black History Month in February is utilized each year to share the history of Black achievements and hardships in America, but it appears that Kanye no longer wants to concentrate on the past, preferring to look forward to brighter prospects.
On Friday, January 21, Brooklyn drill rapper Fivio Foreign tweeted that West instructed him that this year, instead of celebrating Black past in February, they would celebrate Black futures.
“Kayne said we doin Blacc future month dis yr.. Nomore History month. We strive’n for better.”
According to Hotnewhiphop, Fivio and Ye have built a close friendship in the past year when West hired Fivio to deliver a verse-of-the-year candidate on “Off The Grid,” the fourth song on Kanye’s August 2021 star-studded studio album Donda.
Fivio Foreign confirmed after the album’s release that Kanye will be the executive producer for his own upcoming album The Bible. So it seems that Fivio pays close attention whenever Kanye has something to say and will follow in his footsteps to celebrate Black Future Month. Keep an eye on Thirsty for the latest updates.
