Kanye West has announced that he plans to run for president in 2024.
The 42-year-old made the bold announcement that he plans on moving into the White House during a speech at Fast Company’s Innovation Festival.
He said, “When people say it’s crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y’all understand exactly what it is. It will be on the license plate.”
West furthered, “When I run for president in 2024 … [I’m going to] create so many jobs. I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk … What they’re saying is Kanye’s crazy — one and three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can’t say nothing because they’re so scared.”
The Jesus Is King rapper explained that “as black designers out of America, you can’t have an opinion. You can only be the customer… you can only be a demographic. And that a boardroom saying ‘this is the black demographic…This is who you’re supposed to vote on.
This is what you’re supposed to buy. This is your Popeye’s chicken sandwich you’re supposed to eat on. I have seen the boardroom and back. And it’s completely the concept of a demographic.”
