Kanye West is running for president of the United States in 2024.
The rapper was approached on Sunday by a photographer working for X17 Online in Los Angeles’ Crenshaw neighborhood when he introduced far-right political commentator Milo Yiannopoulos as his campaign manager.
“This is Milo here, doing the campaign,” he said in the video, which was posted to YouTube.
When asked if that was an announcement, they both laughed and Milo confirmed, “I think so. Thanks, I accept.”
The hitmaker Stronger invited the member of the paparazzi to his workspace and showed off merchandise with the slogan “YE24”.
The cameraman then asked Kanye, “So you’re running?” and he replied, “Yeah. It’s simple, because no one can tell me, you know, ‘You should say this, you shouldn’t say that,’ you know? It’s just that we’re moving into the future. “
Kanye, who lost several business partnerships last month after making anti-Semitic remarks, ran for US president in 2020 as an independent candidate. He received nearly 70,000 votes and ultimately lost to US President Joe Biden.
Yiannopoulos faded from the spotlight in 2017 after seemingly advocating pedophilia. He returned to the public eye in the summer when he interned for right-wing politician Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Kanye is up against former US President Donald Trump, who last week announced his 2024 presidential bid.
