Kanye West has confirmed that he intends to run for President of the United States in the 2024 election.
The rapper made a surprise appearance at the fifth annual Fast Company Innovation festival in New York yesterday (November 7), where he spoke with Yeezy footwear designer Steven Smith, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“When I run for President in 2024,” he said at the event, before being interrupted by laughter from the audience.
“What y’all laughing at? We would create so many jobs! I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk. When you see headlines saying Kanye’s crazy – one in three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can’t say nothing, they got no opinion, they’re so scared!”
