American rapper Kanye West (who now wishes to be known as ‘Ye’) has returned to social media after a mere seven day hiatus – and he has an odd message for his fans.

Kanye made his comeback with a strange series of Twitter videos, some of which had no sound at all. One of these videos contained a nine-minute spiel from the rapper, where he discussed what he believed to be “mind control” in regards to social media.

“I just want to talk about mind control,” West said. “You know, when people try to influence you through social media and try to tell you what to do, or if you post something that’s positive on Instagram, it gets taken down if it’s not a part of a bigger agenda.”

He also alleged that his IQ was 133 points, and stated that he is the ‘best living recording artist’ because ‘spirits’ flow through him – or, rather ‘us.’

“They were Mensa level, 133, 98th percentile – like, straight up Sigmund Freud, Tesla Vibes,” he claimed. “When people try to tell me what to do, I feel like they’re touching my brain.”

Kanye’s return to Twitter follows his meeting with President Donald Trump on October 12, as well as his highly controversial speech during a Saturday Night Live show in September. Kanye received a slew of criticism for his pro-trump rant during the show, which may have inspired his social media hiatus.


Kanye has also changed his profile picture to a picture of a globe, centered on Africa.
