Also attending is former National Football League great Jim Brown, a civil rights leader who has met with Trump previously.

On Thursday afternoon, President Trump signed the Music Modernization Act (a bill aimed at getting songwriters, publishers, and producers fairer pay) into law, and he did so surrounded by a who's who of his very best rock and country friends. "The idea that he is some ambassador to the African-American community or from the African-American community to President Trump is laughable".

The meeting that will take place at the White House this week between Trump and Ye is said to concern topics of social issues like prison reform, employment in the manufacturing industry and gang violence.

The visit comes after West stoked controversy by wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat during an appearance on "Saturday Night Live" and delivering a pro-Trump speech on set.

West said he had been an underdog his entire career, and that drew him to Trump, a man who many felt could never win the presidency. "When he sees that African-American unemployment is the lowest in history, you know people are watching".
