Kanye Is No Longer Running For President
Kanye will no longer be running for president. A report from Rolling Stone states that the rapper’s attorney confirmed, “[Kanye is] not a candidate for office in 2024.”
This was Kanye’s second time running for President. He ran in 2020 under the “Birthday Party.” He collected just 60,000 votes out of an estimated total of 160 million. Kanye’s announcement comes after former President Donald Trump announced he is running again after his 2020 loss to President Joe Biden. Last year, Trump announced that he will seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.
What Is Kanye Up To Now?
In recent headlines, Kanye is reportedly working on an album with Ty Dolla $ign. The two are also reportedly planning a massive concert event in Italy.Billboard Italia reports that the show will be held at the RCF Arena in Reggio Emilia, which can hold up to 100,000 people. However, no confirmation has been made by either of the artists.
Reports surrounding Ye and Ty Dolla $ign’s concert began earlier this month. A report via ReggiOnline, an Italian newspaper, said that Ye requested a stage to be built at the RCF Arena. The concert was initially planned for last Friday (Oct. 13).
“In the event the authorizations aren’t forthcoming, the date of the following Friday (which would be October 20) is also on the table. Additionally, there is speculation that the preparations are merely for an end-of-summer concert, and the rumors of who could be performing still hang in the air, especially in the absence of official confirmation from West’s camp or other camps,” the site reports via translation from Italian.
The duo has also shared snippets of their work in the studio for the last few weeks.
Kanye’s last album was Donda 2 in 2022, but it was only released on Stem Player. Prior to that, he released Donda (2021), which won the rapper two Grammys.
