Kanye West wants JAY-Z to be vice president

Kanye West has revealed that he would like JAY-Z, his former music collaborator, to be Vice President if he gets elected into office at the upcoming US Presidential Election.

Following on from a rally in South Carolina on Sunday, Kanye expressed his intuition. And it’s got something to do with the homogeneity residing in the initials of the rapper and lettering of the US state.

“I look at the codes, I look at the signs,” noted conspiracist Kanye West explained in an interview with TMZ.

Sean Carter took on the pseudonym JAY-Z when he became a performer. What’s similar between Sean Carter and South Carolina, you may very well be wondering? Well, for one, they have the same initials. And that’s exactly the reasoning behind Kanye’s proposition that he wants JAY-Z as his initial pick for the Vice President position in office.

In a TMZ interview with Kris Kaylin, Kanye explained how the “S.C” lettering is a sign he should tap Sean Carter into his electoral campaign. But what’s even more bizarre is that Kanye and JAY-Z haven’t spoken in years, following on from the public falling out after their Watch the Throne collaboration.

Kanye once even called out JAY-Z, believing he had intentions of hiring a hitman to take him out: “Jay Z—call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man.”

Despite all of their differences, Kanye assured the interviewer that he remains “brothers” with JAY-Z. He also refers to himself as a genius on multiple occasions during the interview.

“Let me ask you a question: how sad is it that you guys have one of your favourite, most genius level, successful Black entrepreneurs running for office, and people allow Democratic Instagram culture to attack me? Why would you vote for Joe Biden over Kanye West? I can’t even ask that question, that question doesn’t even make sense.”

Kanye’s South Carolina debut rally promoting YE2020 is equally bizarre as it is amusing. Meanwhile, he has reportedly failed to meet the submission deadline for the 10 000 signatures needed to get on the South Carolina presidential ballot.

Kanye’s friends and family continue to remain concerned by the antics of his political candidacy and publicised views, believing he “is in desperate need of professional help and in the middle of a serious bipolar episode”.
