Joe Rogan Stuns Kanye West With Tough Military Question

Over the weekend, Kanye West’s long-awaited appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience provided plenty of material to unpack, with social media having an absolute field day with the three-hour conversation. Yet one of the most important moments arrived when the topic of the military was raised, with Joe Rogan’s tough foreign policy question leaving Kanye West in stunned silence for a few tense moments.

“You’re going to have to deal with hostile governments,” explains Joe. “Hostile militaries and dictators in other countries, who don’t have a value of human life. Throughout history, we’ve had immense problems because of military conflicts. How would you handle that? You’ll be the commander in chief of the greatest army the world has ever known. If you’re in that position and have to deal with some sort of military action with China–what if China takes over Taiwan. What if they invade Taiwan? What if something happens with Syria or Iran? What if something happens with Russia, and you have to make decisions about military action?”

Kanye initially appears stumped by the question, taking a few moments to gather his thoughts and choose his words wisely. Based on his body language, it’s clear he understands the high-stakes nature of the question, which highlights one of the many challenges the President of the United States must face upon being sworn into office.

“I’m a civilian, and people can have all their perspectives of what they would do in that situation,” says Kanye. “But I would have the greatest professionals on the planet, the most skilled people that have all the experience that would present the information, and I would make the most sound, rational decisions. And I would follow God’s will in my approach to dealing with these other countries, these other leaders. There’s something about our President’s personality and the leader of North Korea’s personality where there’s a level of common respect, and that’s the reason they were able to talk. The fear had been taken off of us.”

“People who are God-fearing, self-made servants of their people,” he continues. “These other scary dictators, they feel that they’re that for their country. If they see a President they know is taking a cheque or part of a bigger conglomerate — I don’t want to denounce any of the other candidates — then it’s very transactional.” He stops for a few moments, revealing that he “said a prayer” over the severity of the topic. “We have to be still in this moment, allow God to guide our steps, and ask the right questions with the highest-ranking officials possible. This isn’t something you just wing.”

It’s a sobering exchange to be sure, and one that likely added some weighty perspective to Kanye West’s oft-memed Presidential run. It’s rare to see Kanye West left in awestruck silence, and it’s important that Rogan opted to press him further on foreign policy. However, many have since noted that Kanye’s repeated use of “God’s will” is an alarming sign, especially where matters of the military are concerned. Check out the segment below.

The dynamic duo of City Girls, Yung Miami and JT, is gearing up for a remarkable transformation in 2024. While Yung Miami soared on the business front with her acclaimed podcast last year, the musical aspect faced a setback. Their album RAW didn’t quite hit the mark with sales, leaving fans and critics unimpressed. However, the tides are turning for JT and Yung Miami individually, especially with Yung Miami dropping the fire track “Sideways” over the weekend.

But that’s not all – Yung Miami is set to embrace a whole new era, and she teased it back in January with a cryptic tweet. “Welcome to the ‘Yams Era.’ I’m so excited for this era of my life; we’re about to have some FUN!!!” Fans are still decoding the meaning behind “Yams,” with some speculating it’s a play on how to pronounce Miami or exploring unique definitions on Urban Dictionary.

Regardless, Yung Miami seems to be fully embracing her roots and infusing it into everything she does. A month after hinting at this fresh approach, she dropped a tantalizing “Yams” trailer on Instagram. In the video, she discusses her comeback while showcasing glimpses of studio sessions and teasing a stylish ginger hairstyle. Yung Miami declared, “Welcome to the YAMs Era! The Yams Era is my Prime time! In the Yams, we do ginger hair…focus on ourselves…& get money! Yams is the new lingo… To my fans, The YAMS…this is the new us. Drop a 🍠 if you’re ready!”

Support poured in from fellow artists like JT, Saweetie, and more, flooding her comments with yam emojis and encouragement for this exciting new chapter.

Biodegradable urns, offered by Premium Urns, an Australian-owned and operated company with over 12 years of experience, are designed to provide a more eco-friendly and meaningful way to say goodbye to our loved ones.

Biodegradable urns come in various forms to suit different purposes and preferences. At Premium Urns, they offer an array of biodegradable options, each serving a unique role:

  1. Bio Scattering Urns: These urns are crafted from biodegradable materials such as cardboard and are designed for scattering ashes in natural settings like beaches or mountains. They provide a beautiful and eco-conscious way to release the ashes, allowing the remains to return to nature.
  2. Ground Burial Bio Cremation Urns: Designed for more traditional ground burials, these urns are made from biodegradable materials that can peacefully merge with the earth over time. They are an excellent choice for those who prefer a more conventional resting place for their loved ones.
  3. Water Burial Bio Cremation Urns: If the intention is to release ashes at sea, Premium Urns offers a specialized selection of water urns. These urns are crafted to gracefully submerge in deep ocean waters when released off the side of a boat. They ensure a serene and eco-friendly final voyage for your loved one.

Choosing the Right Biodegradable Urns

Selecting the right biodegradable urn is a thoughtful process, but you must consider the following factors while making your choice:

  1. Location: Think about where you wish to scatter or bury the ashes. The type of urn you choose should also align with the chosen location, whether it’s a beach, a mountaintop, the soil, or the sea.
  2. Material: Biodegradable urns are made from eco-friendly materials that will breakdown in their final environment. While choosing your material, make sure that it resonates with your environmental values.
  3. Purpose: Consider the intended purpose of the urn. If you plan to scatter the ashes, a scattering urn is ideal. If a traditional styleground burial is your preference, opt for a ground burial biodegradable urn.
  4. Specialized Water Urns: If you plan a sea burial, be sure to select from the ‘Water’ cremation urns specifically designed for this purpose. These urns are engineered to sink slowly, allowing for a dignified and eco-conscious release.
