Kanye West makes headlines for many reasons. Sometimes it’s about his music. At other times, it may be about him and his wife, Kim Kardashian. However, this time, it’s for something a bit more serious. It’s looking as though he is wanting to run for office. Will we be seeing Kim Kardashian as the first lady? It’s a possibility for sure!
Rapper Kanye West was at the Fast Company Innovation Festival in New York City on Thursday. While there, he was talking about how he’s after holding the highest office in the land: president.
While speaking with the crowd, he was saying that he was going to run for president in 2024. The group then began to laugh. He then was saying that while running, he would create a lot of jobs for the community.

West goes on to say that when people read headlines saying that he’s crazy, that it’s an insult to his intelligence. He says that one in three African Americans is in jail and that celebrities are in jail but can’t say anything. West says that they have no opinion. While speaking on the frenzy that came after his 2005 claim about then-President George W. Bush, he began to laugh. It was during the wake of Hurricane Katrina that West went on live T.V. to claim that Bush”doesn’t care about black people.”
Throughout the years, West has brought up the idea of running for president, more so recently. Last year, West was in headlines for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat as well as visiting President Trump in Washington.
Kanye’s last album, “Jesus is King” is number one on the Billboard charts. Also, every song on the album is on Billboard’s Hot 100 list.
