Kanye West and Donald Trump meet at Trump Tower

This just in: Kanye West just arrived at Trump Tower. He's voiced support for President-elect Donald Trump in the past.

Kanye recently told an audience that did not vote in the recent presidential election but would have voted for Trump if he had.

Concertgoers captured the crowd's reaction .

Kanye also recently canceled the remaining 21 dates of his Saint Pablo Tour, which was to include a Dec. 8 show at Philips Arena.  He played a sold-out show at Philips in September and then added an  encore date in October.

Trump and Kanye posed for photos after their meeting Tuesday and characterized the meeting as just a quick catch-up between friends. (No word on whether Kanye will perform at the Inauguration, in other words).

"I just want to take a picture right now," Kanye said.
