Well, Kanye West has done a new interview with Forbes which has a lot to digest.
The rap mogul, who recently announced that he’s running for president this year, has confirmed his ambitious plans. He has also revealed that the name of his political part is: The Birthday Party. For the bid, he’s seeking guidance from Elon Musk and has picked a preacher from Wyoming as his vice presidential candidate. “Like anything I’ve ever done in my life,” says West, “I’m doing to win.”
In the chat, ‘Ye also admits that he’s never noted in his life and just recently got himself registered to vote in Wyoming. He has also admitted to contracting COVID-19 back in February and that he was skeptical about a vaccine being developed for it. He calls it a “the mark of the beast.” Kanye having Coronavirus was accidentally revealed by Royce da 5’9″ during a chat with Lupe Fiasco on Instagram Live recently (watch the clip below).
Kanye also said that he envisions a White House model based on the secret country of Wakanda in Black Panther.
On Trump and Joe Biden:
“It looks like one big mess to me,” he says. “I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.”
“I’m not saying Trump’s in my way, he may be a part of my way. And Joe Biden? Like come on man, please. You know? Obama’s special. Trump’s special. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special.”
“Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation.”
On God’s role in electing Presidents:
“Let’s see if the appointing is at 2020 or if it’s 2024—because God appoints the president. If I win in 2020 then it was God’s appointment. If I win in 2024 then that was God’s appointment.”
On Coronavirus cure and vaccine:
“We pray. We pray for the freedom. It’s all about God. We need to stop doing things that make God mad.”
“It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed… So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven. I’m sorry when I say they, the humans that have the Devil inside them. And the sad thing is that, the saddest thing is that we all won’t make it to heaven, that there’ll be some of us that do not make it. Next question.”
“I am pro-life because I’m following the word of the bible.”
On having Covid-19:
“Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it. I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!” (laughs)
On his campaign slogan:
“Well my second album is called Late Registration. I got a rap … The other thing is, my campaign is Kanye West YES, not YEP, not YEAH. YES. YES. YES… When I’m president, let’s also have some fun. Let’s get past all the racism conversation, let’s empower people with 40 acres and a mule, let’s give some land, that’s the plan.”
