Kanye West has always had something to say. Check out this dusty footage of him praising Martin Luther King, Jr.

The young poet said:

“A man who fought for freedom/A man who fought for equality/Those who were against him/Were too blind to see/What this man was fighting for/So Blacks, Hispanics, Jews and Asians could put their foot in the door/Yes, we know that this man is great/That’s why today we celebrate/Everyone lifts their voice and sing/For a man who wanted freedom to ring/Martin Luther King is who I’m speaking of/A man whose name means love.”
