Jermaine Dupri knows who he’s voting for in 2020 and it’s Yeezus! The music exec tells HollywoodLife.com that he thinks the rapper would make a great POTUS but he’s not exactly sure if Yeezy would be able to command an audience the same way President Barack Obama can.
We know at least one person who’s voting for Kanye West in the 2020 election and he goes by the name of Jermaine Dupri. The 43-year-old So So Def founder tells HollywoodLife.com‘s podcast that Kayne would be a natural fit for the White House because he’s “a very opinionated person and you can’t be scarred as the President.” But there are definitely a few reasons why he says he’d be a little scared if Yeezy took office.
“I think the reason why Kanye could be a good president is because one of the things I think that people who are trying to be President are forgetting is that President Obama brought fame to the White House, a different type of thing that I haven’t seen since I’ve been born. Although [Ronald] Regan was famous, he wasn’t young famous. Young famous is a different famous than Hollywood famous.”
Jermaine says that Kanye’s fearless attitude is definitely what this country needs: “But I know that he’s a very opinionated person and you can’t be scared as the president, I know that. You’ve got to be somebody who’s willing to do – that’s what people want to see. I’ve seen people get mad at President Obama for not doing – at least what they think he’s not doing. That’s one thing that I see, they want a president who’s going to do something. And I think that’s why Trump believes that he can win, because he’s not going to hold his tongue, he’s going to DO something. At least he says he’s going to do something.”
