Kayne West has announced his bid for the presidency 2020 and as the weeks pass and he hasn’t changed his mind, it seems that he’s serious. It’s always hard to tell with Kanye, whose family has been open about his mental health problems over the years.

West’s past history of flip-flopping on political beliefs, his opinionated statements, and his relationship with Trump — which now seems to be fractured to a certain extent after the previous lovefest between the two egomaniacs– also makes it hard to believe that Kanye is taking this seriously.
Black Twitter actually dragged Chance and laughed at him for thinking Kanye’s announcement is real. Most people are still convinced that Kanye’s Presidential bid is just “Kanye being Kanye” and living in the moment. Promoting his brand.

Some have accused him of working with Trump to misdirect enough of the Black vote away from expected Democratic nominee Joe Biden, to allow Trump to steal some undecided Black voters.
Yeezy is already receiving support in his run for POTUS in the Hip Hop community and his first public supporter is none other than his fellow Chi-Town homie Chance The Rapper.
Chance has been receiving some heat for supporting West, but wonders why people think Biden is a good choice for Black America.
“Are u more pro Biden or anti ye and why? I get that you’ll want to reply that you’re just tryna ‘get trump out’ but in this hypothetical scenario where you’re replacing Trump, can someone explain why Joe Biden would be better??”
This Presidential race is going to be interesting. Since Joe Biden got caught with his foot in his mouth on an interview with Charlamage saying “If you don’t vote for me you’re not Black” and then some history of involvement with legislation unfavorable to Black people and their communities surfaced and took the main stage, many people fo color consider him voting for one poison or another (Trump). Others, just want to get Trump out fo office, as Chance said.
Maybe the philanthropist is the first of a legion of rappers who will throw their support and influence behind Black man instead of two 75 plus-year-old white men. Especially at a time when the country is moving in a progressive nature and needs younger, innovative thinkers leading the government and change.
Let’s see what P. Diddy does.
