Kanye West collaborator Chance the Rapper chimed in on the brouhaha surrounding the “Yeezus” rapper’s support for President Trump.

“Black people don’t have to be democrats,” Chance tweeted on Wednesday, after West was barraged with criticism for his MAGA tweets.

Chance’s missive immediately received more than 11,000 retweets — with support from Trump fans and outrage from some of the artist’s followers.

The Chance tweet came after multiple messages from Kanye that showed support for Trump. Kanye and Chance collaborated on the 2016 album “The Life of Pablo” and both are from the Chicago area.

Meanwhile musician John Legend, who has also worked with Kanye, had a different take on the matter.

“I love that great, brilliant artists have the power to imagine a better future. But artists can’t be blind to the truth,” Legend tweeted.
