President Yeezy, anyone?

Hip-hop mogul Kanye West seemed dead serious on Thursday when he told an audience at the Fast Company Innovation Festival in New York City that he’s going to run for president in 2024.

“When I run for president in 2024, we’re going to definitely — no, what you all laughing at?” West said when some in the audience laughed as if what he was saying was intentionally a joke. “When I run for president in 2024, we would’ve created so many jobs that I’m not gonna run, I’m going to walk.”

Smack talk is one way to make that kind of announcement. It’s definitely original.

West’s possible run seems to be predicated on giving people and celebrities a voice who are too afraid to speak out against the establishment, whether it be politicians or media, for fear of having their lives ruined.

“What I'm saying is, when y'all read the headlines, 'Kanye's crazy,' this and that, this and that, it's like one in three African Americans are in jail and all of the celebrities are in jail also because they can't say nothing. They've got no opinion. They're so scared.”

“Last year I was killed by the press for having a difference [of opinion],” West said later in the interview. “No, not for having a difference of opinion — for having an opinion.”
