Whether you thought Kanye West was joking when he announced his presidential candidacy at the MTV Video Music Awards or not, Yeezy is reaching for the White House in 2020. His first move to get there? Letting people know his political views through his music.
Kanye West, 38, has already gotten the ball rolling for his 2020 presidential campaign, according to one of HollywoodLife.com‘s EXCLUSIVE sources. He’s looking to record a new album called “20/20 Vision” that outlines what would be in store for a country run by President West. 2020 is getting closer and closer every day…
Is everybody ready for the Kanye West Wing? If Yeezus has his way, he’ll be running for president in 2020, as he announced during his Vanguard speech at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on August 30. Though it’s still five years away, any serious candidate knows that you need to get the word out about your presidential campaign early, and effectively. Kanye’s thinking of starting the best way he knows how: new music.
“Kanye’s seriously considering campaigning right now and one of the ways he’s thinking about doing it is to get his message to the people through his music,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He’d love to re-write the U.S. Constitution and make it rhyme and flow so that people could dance to the music, and also retain the words and the meaning of the constitution — just like they know all the words to any one of his hit songs.”
That an amazing idea! We do hope Kanye knows there’s actually already a School House Rock song from the ’70s about the Constitution, so he’s not exactly doing it first, but we’d die to hear it explained his way. There are a lot of kids who would be able to learn more about politics through his music who didn’t have the interest before. The Constitution rap isn’t where he’s stopping, though; an entire album is in his sights, too!
“[Kanye’s] really thinking about doing a new album outlining his plans and policies for a better America, and he thought about calling it ’20/20 Vision,'” our source continued. “That’s a killer title and Kanye knows like most of his albums, this one would sell in droves. There’s nothing in this world that Kanye can’t do. And while he might not have 20/20 vision himself, he’s got a vision for 2020!”
