American rapper and record producer Kanye West, who mounted a failed US presidential bid in 2020, has said he isn't done with politics.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, during a recent ABC News interview, West was asked if he still had "future political aspirations" and the rapper answered, "Yes, absolutely." In the portion of the interview, he declined to specify which offices he might be interested in running for, but a day after Election Day in 2020, when he appeared to concede with an Instagram post, he wrote "Kanye 2024."
In his 2022 song Keep It Burnin', Kanye had also teased his political aspirations by rapping "When you run for '24, I bet your spouse gon' be with you / Who put this together? Me, that's who."
The Hollywood Reporter also said Kanye, who was formerly married to Kim Kardashian, also apologized in the interview for "any stress that I have caused, even in my frustration, because God calls me to be stronger." He took many disputes with Kim and her ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson in public as Kanye and Kardashian were divorcing.
Kim filed to end her marriage to Kanye in February 2021 and was declared legally single in March.
In a music video from earlier this year, Kanye rapped about beating "Pete Davidson's a--," in addition to other comments that appear to suggest violence toward Davidson. In the video, an animated Davidson is abducted and murdered by an animated Kanye. (ANI)
