Chance The Rapper has come out in support of Kanye West's presidential bid. Chance took to social media to express his support for the fellow American rapper.
The All We Got hitmaker set his Twitter handle alight when he decided to speak about the upcoming presidential election. The muso contrasted Kanye West with Joe Biden and current President Donald Trump.
Chance explained that he understands the improbability of Kanye winning the elections but said he is for "black liberation".
"I understand the improbability of Ye winning the 46th presidential seat and I understand that everyone voting for Biden isn’t necessarily doing so enthusiastically. I am for black liberation..."
He further asked his fans why they believe that Biden will be a better replacement for Trump.
"Are you more pro-Biden or anti-Ye and why? I get that you’ll want to reply that you’re just tryna 'get Trump out' but in this hypothetical scenario where you’re replacing Trump, can someone explain why Joe Biden would be better?"
The award-winning rapper added that he doesn't feel the same as the people who trust Biden more than Kanye to run the US.
"I finally got the answer now. I understand. Y'all trust Biden more than y'all trust Ye. I think I understand why, I just don’t feel the same way."
Still on the US election, Briefly.co.za reported that Kanye has said that he is no longer supporting Trump's re-election bid. He said he entered the presidential race to win it. The wealthy US musician said he would be running under an umbrella called the Birthday Party.
According to Kanye, he is not trying to split the black community votes and cut the chances of Trump's main opponent, Biden.
"Like anything I have ever done in my life, I am doing (this) to win," he told Forbes.
On Sunday, 5 July, the Flashing Lights hitmaker caught many by surprise when he took to Twitter to announce that he would be running for President of the United States in the upcoming election.
