Kanye for President

Love him or hate him, Kanye West is fearless when it comes to his artistry. He’s a visionary and it’s evident in the way he articulates through song, performance and style.

When MTV announced the rapper as the 2015 Michael Jackson Music Video Vanguard award recipient, the world witnessed yet another one-up for the creative.

But that’s not the only thing people observed.

As Yeezy took the stage to give his “acceptance speech,” onlookers braced themselves for a tour inside the mind of a self-proclaimed genius.

For 13 minutes, the emcee gave a stirring address equipped with references to his Taylor Swift-stage bomb, the politics of award shows and the new mentality of millennials.

While his lecture was full of pull quotes, what’s most standout is the last statement he made followed by a boss-worthy mic drop.

“Oh yeah and I will be running for President in 2020,” he revealed.

Say what?!

When he announced his bid to become leader of the free world (he’s not the only aspiring politician), the crowd erupted in applause, confidently endorsing him and his abilities to get the job done.

Mr. West hasn’t launched his campaign just yet, but we’ve gotten a glimpse into his political views thanks to his lyrics over the last decade.

Get to know the candidate…

On Education

You know the kids gon’ act a fool
When you stop the programs for after-school
And they DCFS, some of ‘em dyslexic
They favorite 50 Cent song “12 Questions”

-“We Don’t Care 

Kanye believes children should have the best schooling to ensure their success for the future. With Mr. West as president, you can rest assure that your little ones will be smart as a whip. He’s already making his mark in the education field. Just take his Donda’s House organization for example.

On Marijuana

Don’t drop the blunt and disrespect the weed

-“The New Workout Plan

Vote for Mr. West, and the ban on marijuana will be obsolete. The lyricist is in favor of puff-puff-pass activities. In fact, during last night’s speech, he admitted he partook in herb smoking before hitting the VMAs to “take the edge off.”

On Health Insurance

Her family cryin’, they want her to live and she tryin’
I’m arguing like what kind of doctor can we fly in
You know the best medicine go to people that’s paid
If Magic Johnson got a cure for AIDS
And all the broker motherf**kers passed away

-“Roses

Displeased with the cost of healthcare, President West would see to it that all Americans would be able to afford good insurance. He would work to close the gap between the low, middle and high-class citizens, making certain that the poorest of people would receive adequate care no matter their class status.

On Freedom of Speech

They say I talk with so much emphasis
Ooh they so sensitive

Can’t Tell Me Nothing

Kanye would take freedom of speech to another level. He’s the champ of non-conformity. As president, he would run verbal circles around his antagonist and come out on top. With Kanye having political power, it’s his way.

On Police Brutality

I say f**k the police, that’s how I treat ‘em
We buy our way out of jail, but we can’t buy freedom

-“All Falls Down

Yeezus is cracking down on police brutality. He understands that the relationship between citizens and law enforcement is strained, and it will take more than a series of meetings to mend the wounds.
