Atlanta rapper T.I. on Thursday ripped Kanye West for his public display of support for President Trump during a wild meeting in the Oval Office earlier in the day.

“At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you… now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you,” T.I., who collaborated with the Chicago rapper on the track “Swagga Like Us” in 2006, said in a post on Instagram.

“I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop, I’m officially DONE!!!!” T.I. said.

“To all the people who follow Ye musically, socially, or even personally….who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated…. Let me make this clear… THIS SHIT AINT COOL!!!” the rapper added.

Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye’& his antics… Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this shit is next level,futuristic Sambo,Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass shit Ye!!!! From what I can gather… This is the most repulsive,disgraceful, Embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen. Now I recall you asking me to come with you to have this meeting and I declined (naturally)… but bro… if ain’time I would’ve been in there wit you and you behaved that spinelessly in my presence,I feel that I’d be compelled to slap de’Fuq outta you bro For the People!!! You ass kissing and boot licking on a whole new level &I refuse to associate myself with something so vile,weak,& inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!! I’m a true believer in “It ain’t what you do,it’s how you do it.” And this shit is regurgitating! At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you… now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you. To all the people who follow Ye musically,socially, or even personally….who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated…. Let me make this clear… THIS SHIT AINT COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! THIS IS A PLAY TO PUT HIM IN A POSITION HE’D LIKE TO SEE HIMSELF IN…WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS. Don’t follow this puppet. Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world,if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr.West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop,I’m officially DONE!!!! Trump & His Lil Cookie Boy. #USorELSE✊

The Atlanta rapper made his comments shortly after West’s surreal meeting with Trump at the White House, during which West discussed a variety of subjects, such as the prison system, the 13th Amendment and ways to improve life for African-Americans in inner cities. 

West, who wore a red “Make America Great Again” hat throughout the meeting, said the president may have been surprised that a “crazy motherf—er” like him would offer a public endorsement. 

The Chicago rapper has faced scrutiny over his vocal support of Trump and prompted backlash last month after he went on a pro-Trump rant onstage following his appearance on “Saturday Night Live.” 

{mosads}This is also not the first time T.I. has criticized West for his backing of Trump. 

Earlier this year, the two released a song debating West’s announcement of his support for Trump called “Ye vs. the People.” 

In the song, West and T.I. debated the Chicago rapper’s support for Trump and his frustration over perceived pressure for African-Americans to be Democrats.
