Chance the Rapper Defends Kanye West Running for President


Chance the Rapper is here for a Kanye West presidency.

The Chicago rapper took to Twitter on Monday in defense of Kanye’s 2020 run for President of the United States. In a series of tweets, he shared his support for his “Ultralight Beam” collaborator and said he would vote for him over presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

“And y’all out here tryna convince me to vote for Biden. Smfh,” he wrote in response to Kanye’s tribute to his late mother Donda West.

He followed it up with other politically-charged tweets. “Are we pro two-party system?” he asked in one, while adding, “Ima keep it real alota u ni**as is racist.”

When he didn’t receive the response he was hoping for, he asked his followers for their thoughts on the upcoming election. “Are u more pro biden or anti ye and why?” asked Chance. “I get that you’ll want to reply that you’re just tryna ‘get trump out’ but in this hypothetical scenario where you’re replacing Trump, can someone explain why Joe Biden would be better??”

Added Chance, “I finally got the answer now. I understand. Yall trust Biden more than yall trust Ye. I think I understand why, I just don’t feel the same way.”

He was clowned by many on social media for his pro-Kanye tweets.

When his name started trending, Chance took the opportunity to tell the city of Chicago to “admit to and denounce the assassination of Fred Hampton,” a Black Panther who was killed by the FBI. He also conducted a poll asking if his followers were in favor of reparations. “The US owe us 17T,” tweeted Chance.

In addition to Chance, Kanye has received support from other celebrities including Elon Musk, Ty Dolla $ign, 2 Chainz, and YG. “People be underestimating Kanye. He always got a plan. He a real ni**a,” said YG, who said he would vote for Ye.
