USA TODAY

Kanye West Break from social media lasted every seven days.

After a bizarre week involving a public meeting with President Donald Trump at the Oval Office and a spontaneous trip to Uganda, West returned to Twitter to speak "mind control."

The controversial rappers opted for social media last week following a similarly peculiar Pro Trump ride after appearing at the Saturday Night Live season premiere

In a series of Twitter -Videos on Saturday West gave his unfiltered thoughts about the negative impact of social media in a nine-minute live video in which he talks directly to the camera.

"I just want to talk about mind control," West began. "You know, when people try to influence you through social media and try to tell you what to do, or if you post something positive on Instagram, it's rejected if it's not part of a larger agenda."

He continued, "It's like mind control, it's the echo chamber, it's trying to control you based on incentives and based on getting enough likes, that's the poison that happens with social media."

West discussed his self-proclaimed IQ point ("Straight up Sigmund Freud, Tesla Vibes"), his aversion to people who told him what he should do ("Feeling, as if they were touching my brain ") and compared his policing thoughts to a woman's right to consent (" She wants to have control of her body and choose who she wants to give it to … I feel that way in my mind ").

"Imagine that you cut your skull open and someone touched your brain with his hand that would hurt you," West asked. "So it hurts me when people try to tell me what to do when I walk out of my heart, trying to tell me what to say, it's not programmed."

The father of three says he is not crazy, as he was portrayed: "It's all part of a system to control your mind, to control my mind, to make me look like I'm crazy I'm not crazy, I can go up when I'm sleep deprived. "

West said that Twitter and Instagram are the least of his worries, adding that his fan base remains true.

"I'm not worried about some kind of blog or social media, you've already seen it a lie," he said. "Social media has told you that Hillary will win and not win, social media has told you that people do not like me, but everyone loves me, everyone loves ye."

In typical Western style, the rapper does not hold back the love he has for himself: "I take pictures in Africa … The music is the best on the planet .I am the best living artist."

West is probably working hard on his work The early "Yandhi" album, which his wife Kim Kardashian announced, was postponed until November 23.
