Recently sitting down with BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac for an interview, West reiterated that he will still run President in in four years.
“When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views,” Kanye says. “I don’t have views on politics, I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive I’m going to try to do it.”
The video interview is set to debut today (November 14th).
