In tears, rapper Kanye West gave a rambling speech during a strange political rally supposed to launch his presidential campaign.
[Mis à jour le 20 juillet 2020 à 17h36] Kanye West, will or will not go to the White House? After announcing his candidacy for the US presidential election, then hinting that he was giving up, the rapper gave his very first meeting on Sunday in Charleston, South Carolina, in the United States. A rambling speech, which ended in tears, in front of an audience of guests who had to sign a coronavirus waiver form, wear masks and practice social distancing, according to US media. Kanye West wore a bulletproof vest that read “security”.
In front of the crowd, the 43-year-old artist then declared that he wanted his wife Kim Kardashian to abort their daughter, North, born in 2013. “My father wanted my mother to abort me. My mother saved my life. There wouldn’t have been a Kanye West because my dad was too busy, “the rapper said, starting to cry. And to add, in an almost incomprehensible speech: “I almost killed my daughter! I almost killed my daughter!” On social networks, there are many questions. The videos of this hallucinatory meeting quickly toured the Internet, raising a number of questions about the mental health of Kanye West. In 2016, the rapper was diagnosed with bipolar after several stays in a psychiatric hospital.
“Like everything I do in my life, I do it to win.” At the beginning of July, it is with these words that Kanye West launched himself in the race for the White House. Political ambitions posted on Twitter, then reaffirmed in a long interview with American media Forbes, Wednesday, July 8, 2020. In this interview, the famous rapper explained that he had cut ties with Donald Trump, whom he nevertheless supported for a long time. in 2018, not hesitating to show off the billionaire’s red cap with the slogan “Make America Great Again” even in the Oval Office at the White House. “With this interview, I take off the red cap,” he says in Forbes.
For him, his candidacy is not by chance, it is even dictated by God. “Let’s see if the appointment is for 2020 or for 2024, because it is God who appoints the president (…) If it is 2020, then I would have been appointed by God”, he explained to the newspaper, adding that he would then be the candidate of a new party, called “Birth Day”. A candidacy motivated by Kanye West’s wish to gather the black votes, which Joe Biden would be unable to do, leading the latest polls. “To say that the black vote is democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy,” the artist explained, adding, “America needs special people to lead. Joe Biden is not special.”
On the campaign program side, Kanye West was inspired by the Marvel film Black Panther : “I will use the framework of Wakanda because it is the best explanation of what our group will feel in the White House”, assured the rapper, supported by his wife, Kim Kardashian. The rest of its program, however, still remains a mystery.
If we no longer present Kanye West, his wife is also very famous. Born October 21, 1980 in Los Angeles, she became known in the 2000s in several successful reality TV shows in the United States, where she participates with her family (she will also be talked about for a sextape published in 2007, then another in 2018). After her marriage to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004, and several other high-profile relationships, Kim Kardashian appeared with longtime friend Kanye West. From 2012, the two stars are inseparable, despite their respective relationship. In 2013, she became pregnant: North West, their first child, was born on June 15, 2013 in Los Angeles. The couple got engaged in October of the same year and got married on May 24, 2014 in Florence, Italy. Their second child, baptized Saint West, was born on December 5, 2015, then a daughter, Chicago, was born on January 15, 2015 to a surrogate mother, Kim Kardashian having revealed that she could no longer have children. Finally, a fourth baby, Psalm, is born on May 10, 2019.

On Twitter, he also announced the release of his tenth album, called Donda (his mother’s first name ndlr.), on July 24th. In addition to these two announcements, the artist has published the tracklist of this opus. But a few minutes after the publication of this tweet, Kanye West finally deleted it, without any explanation from him. Knowing the rapper’s ability to meet his deadlines, expect anything.
