So Kanye is still serious about running for President in 2024. According to TMZ, while Kanye made an appearance at the Fast Company Innovation Festival last week, he told the crowd that he still plans to make a bid for president. “When I run for president in 2024, we gonna definitely…” Kanye said before being interrupted by laughter. He then asked, “What y’all laughing for?” Kanye added, “When I run for president in 2024, we would’ve created so many jobs that I’m not gonna run, I’m gonna walk.”The rapper shifted gears and spoke on empowering the black community, saying, “They don’t want us to know that we can buy land. They don’t want us to have the 100 percent ownership. I have 100 percent ownership at Yeezy. And the reason that I say these things out loud is so that I won’t be killed. But last year I was killed by the press for having an opinion.” According to Rap-Up, Kanye first announced his plans to run for president in 2020 at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. He later said he would be running in 2024.
