“Thank to one of my biggest inspirations … always breaking barriers with independent thought,” Ye wrote in the caption of a pic showing off his new autographed Chicago Bulls jersey from the basketball vet.
Both Ye and Rodman, aside from their Chicago connection, are among the few black supporters of Donald Trump. Last month, the NBA Hall of Famer was present during Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s summit in Singapore.
Several months ago, West sparked outrage on social media when he took a selfie sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat.
On the music front, West completed the promised five-week album rollout for his G.O.O.D. Music Label, including the release of his eighth studio album, “Ye.” His latest effort landed No. 1 on the Billboard 200 during its opening week.
