After his return to Twitter, Kanye West’s account has been a fertile source of thought-provoking tweets. The “Famous” rapper has been tweeting non-stop and hasn’t been afraid of sparking controversy with his philosophical and motivational musings as well as politically-charged tweets. Twitter had never witnessed a stream of consciousness of that magnitude from a celebrity of that caliber before, but not everyone was amused. West expressed some love for President Trump, called him his “brother,” and shared a photo of his “Make America Great Again” hat signed by Trump with a sharpie, and the world pretty much melted down.

Mr. West needed only several tweets in less than 280 characters each to accomplish something other celebrities can’t do with their feuds, hate-charged disses and rants about their frenemies and explosive interviews. Kanye West is all about love and free-thinking, and it definitely attracts people, which is how Yeezy gained more than 8 million Twitter followers in less than 24 hours, according to SocialBlade.

Radar revisits some of Kanye West’s most iconic tweets from late April 2018 to let you feed off of Yeezy’s love-energy and free up your thinking.
