Kanye West has been the topic of headlines for the past week following a series of questionable choices the rapper made ranging from a disturbing pro-Trump tweeting spree to boldly claiming slavery was a "choice" during an interview with TMZ.
The latter proved to be the last straw, for many, as they took that comment as the moment that signified the end of their support of the rapper. However, Jamie Foxx, one of West's former and earliest collaborators, is now speaking out, and he actually is coming to the viral MC's defense.
Ironically enough, TMZ actually captured video footage of West's "Gold Digger" and "Slow Jamz" collaborator, Jamie Foxx, expressing his outrage over the taped explosive interview.
"TMZ knows they shouldn't be doing that s**t, man," he said. "To a good friend of ours. They put that boy on display, man. Don't believe that s**t."
The Ray actor went on to stress that he refuses to talk ill about West and urged the rapper to call him if he needs anything as he can tell that he is going through some tough times.
"My man going through something, man," he added. "I ain't going to be like everybody jumping on the bandwagon saying I hate my dude. I'm not gonna do that s**t. I know my man needs some help and if you need me, call me."
