Kanye West said he’s definitely running for president and disputed reports that he’s acting “erratic” following a tweet storm of posts in support of President Donald Trump.

The 40-year-old rapper invited Harvey Levin’s TMZ into the studio to hear a sample of the music he’s working on for his next few albums and to tell those people who claim he’s in the middle of a meltdown that they are wrong.


During the two-hour visit, West talked about five albums he’s going to release and played 10 songs featuring him and several other rappers, along with a freestyle session while sporting a “Make America Great Again” cap.

The rapper also said he is “serious” about running for president in 2024.

And it’s not the first time he’s mentioned the idea.

On Wednesday, he tweeted to Levin that he was “hearing from your future president.”

Following that post, West tweeted a photo of a poster that read “Keep America Great #Kanye2024.” He posted the screenshot of a message from a person identified as Malik. The message underneath the shot of the West poster read, “Chicago!!!”

That same day, the rapper posted a serious of tweets voicing his support for Trump. In one, he tweeted a photo of him wearing the famous MAGA red cap, before adding a second tweet about how it was signed by Trump.

Trump noticed the comments and responded with “Thank you Kanye, very cool!”

West also posted that Trump was his “brother” and that the “mob can’t make me not love him.”
