There is so much going on with West right now we can hardly keep up, but the most burning topic has to be his announcement last year in 2015 at the VMAs when Kayne announced that he would be running for president in 2020, and in a recent interview he has confirmed that he is serious. With no interest, background or knowledge of politics he is driven purely on a passionate “view on humanity, on people, (and) on the truth.”
“If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive, I’m going to try do it.”
His intentions are good and there is also no denying that he has a massive pull and influence in the world as a pop culture icon, what would happen if he made it to prez? Would he gain the hearts of the older generation? Could he gain the respect of his fellow politicians? Or is this whole situation just laughable?
It’s kinda laughable… Just like the fact that he is bringing out a $30 sneaker after boasting one of the most expensive sneakers of all time, come on, where is the continuity.
ALSO the man of many avenues was just yesterday telling BBC of his interior design dreams – reaching out to Ikea saying “Yo (Ikea), allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes”
Ikea has so far declined to comment on a possible collab with Kanye.
