Kanye West Supports Smokepurpp's "Lift Yourself" Remix & Parkland Activist Emma Gonzalez

Posted by

Kanye West’s busy week on Twitter didn’t slow down during the weekend. Yeezy kept up his social media activity by sharing his approval of Smokepurpp’s “Lift Yourself” remix and calling Parkland shooting survivor/activist Emma Gonzalez his hero on Saturday (April 29).

Much like West’s “Lift Yourself,” Smokepurpp’s version is a trolling record full of nonsensical lyrics. Some have assumed it’s a jab at J. Cole since he’s namedropped on the record, but the G.O.O.D. Music founder said his love of this new rendition isn’t a slight at the KOD MC.

“I’m posting this but not as a diss to J Cole,” he wrote. “I love J Cole. I also love where Purp took his flow.”

Earlier in the day, West shocked some supporters of his pro-Trump messages by praising outspoken NRA critic Emma Gonzalez. The teen activist has been at the forefront of the fight for gun control since surviving the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.

“My hero Emma Gonzalez,” West tweeted before sharing a picture of himself “inspired by Emma.”

Gonzalez responded to West’s tweet by putting the spotlight on James Shaw Jr., who wrestled away the rifle from the gunman in the recent Waffle House shooting.
