Kanye West has disclosed that he would be running for the post of the President of the United State in 2024. But, that is not all, he will be doing so in style.
Speaking at a Fast Company’s Innovation Festival, Kanye West disclosed that he does not plan to actually ‘run’ for the office but to ‘walk’ for it and would change his name which will be captured on his number plate.
“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,” he said. “It will be on the license plate.”
“When I run for president in 2024 —” West said, to laughter from the audience. “What y’all laughing at?”
He also revealed that he would “create so many jobs” if elected into office.
“I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk,” he said. “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 rapper went on to speak on how African American voters are treated as a “demographic” alone, and how he experienced the same as an African American fashion designer.
“As black designers out of America, you can’t have an opinion,” he said. “You can only be the consumer… you can only be a demographic.”
“And that a boardroom says ‘this is the black demographic…This is who you’re supposed to vote on,” he continued. “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.”
