American rapper and record producer Kanye West, who ran a failed US presidential bid in 2020, has said he has nothing to do with politics.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, during a recent ABC News interview, West was asked if he had “future political aspirations” and the rapper replied, “Yes, of course.”
In part of the interview he declined to specify which offices he might be interested in running, but a day after Election Day in 2020, when he appeared to acknowledge with an Instagram post, he wrote ” Kanye 2024.”
In his song ‘Keep It Burnin’ from this year, Kanye also teased his political aspirations by rapping “When you run for ’24, I bet your spouse will be with you / Who will keep it together? Me, who is that?”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kanye, who was formerly married to Kim Kardashian, had several publicly disputes with himself and his ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson, as Kanye and Kardashian were getting divorced, saying in interviews “someone Apologies for causing tension, even in my frustration, because God tells me to be strong.”
Kim filed for an end to her marriage to Kanye in February 2021 and was declared legally single in March.
In a music video earlier this year, Kanye rapped about beating “Pete Davidson’s a–,” among other comments that suggest violence toward Davidson. In the video, an animated Davidson is kidnapped and murdered by an animated Kanye.
