Kanye West's strange trip into white nationalism hasn't garnered him too many amens from the Hip Hop crowd.

However, Akon was willing to defend Ye's right to say what he wants in an interview with Sky News.

"I show support for opinion and I think people will always have a specific opinion and I think the moment we get to the place where we close our minds up to other people's opinion, it kind of doesn't allow us to get to better know each other better know our mindsets and more than anything better know our movements  and I think sometimes we should open up our minds and let things play all the way out and better understand the situation so we have a better solution for it."

Akon was next asked if any of West's comments -- which ranged from claiming George Floyd died of an OD to claiming Hitler invented highways -- offended him.

"Not really because those comments don't really affect me personally and I think if everyone takes it that way its different and if it does affect you personally then find a way to actually respond in a way to where that conversation can be reciprocated," Akon said.
