The rapper welcomed 2019 by tweeting, "Trump all day" before sources confirmed he and his wife are expecting a baby boy.
Kanye West welcomed 2019 with renewed fervor for Donald Trump.
After announcing in October that he planned on "distancing" himself from politics, the 41-year-old rapper took to Twitter on New Year's Day to reaffirm his love for MAGA hats and the president's "dragon energy."
"Trump all day," West wrote on Tuesday, followed by three dragon emojis. The images reference his April tweets in which he repeated his support of Trump, "[T]he mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother." West went on to define people with "dragon energy" as "natural born leaders," "very instinctive," and having "great foresight."
In a series of New Year's Tweets, West began, "Just so in 2019 you know where I stand...They will not program me...Blacks are 90% Democrats...That sounds like control to me…" To his meager credit, this statistic is not pulled from thin air. Rather, West is misinterpreting a poll from Pew Research Center citing that 90% of black voters supported Democrats in the 2018 House of Representatives race.
He noted, "One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can't tell me what to do because I'm black." He added, "from now on I'm performing with my mutherfucking hat on."

The rapper also tweeted, "2024," referencing his previous public statements about planning to run for president in 2024. "If I decide to do it, it will be done," he promised in an interview with a Chicago radio station. "I'm not gonna try." West has expressed interest in a presidential bid since 2015, voicing plans to "make sure that the medical industry flourishes" and even calling to "abolish" the 13th amendment.
West injected his rant with sentiments of "love everyone" and "start the year clean." The following day, People confirmed that the rapper and his wife Kim Kardashian West are expecting their fourth child via a surrogate. An alleged insider told Inquisitr that Kanye's growing family help him stay calm, stating, "Kanye says that being a dad is the most important thing that he does, and despite his other problems, he's an involved, loving dad to his kids." The unnamed source added, "They stabilize him. It's almost like a physical change."
TMZ reported that the couple is expecting a baby boy in early May.

Even to this day, "Dark Tournament" remains the defining shonen "Tournament Arc."
Oftentimes, it's impossible to separate the quality of the anime we grew up watching from the sense of nostalgia those series evoke.
Case in point: Dragon Ball Z. Historically, DBZ is likely the most influential anime series of all time, both redefining the shonen genre for every series that came after it and introducing an entire generation of Western kids to Japanese animation through the legendary Funimation dub on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Chances are high that if you meet someone who loves anime and grew up in the late '90s or early 2000s, they'll have a deeply personal bond with DBZ.
At the same time, it's hard to argue that DBZ holds up in the modern day, especially for new viewers coming in with fresh eyes. The pacing of the original series is super slow, the fights drag out forever, and while DBZ created so many of shonen's most prevalent tropes ("This isn't even my final form!"), almost everything DBZ ever did has since been done better by other series.
A vibrant summer earworm.
