Kanye West wants to lose the Constitutional Amendment that outlawed slavery.


In a bizarre Sunday tweet aboard his private jet, the rapper called for abolishing the 13th Amendment.

"this [sic] represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love," West tweeted.

The assumption is that West wants to abolish the ability of prisons to be used for free labor. The Amendment abolished the use of slavery or indentured servitude except for prisons, but West wants to throw the baby out with the bathwater instead of fixing incarceration laws.

The 13th Amendment was a fierce battle for former President Abraham Lincoln as the Civil War raged on.

West is currently in a war for the number one spot in the sales for his latest album. Both he and Lil Wayne are battling it out. So, it's unclear if the tweet is out of the Karshashian handbook for how to garner attention.
