Marking July 4 Independence Day in the United States, rapper Kanye West has seemingly announced his intention to run for the 2020 Presidency via Twitter.

"What y'all laughing at?" This includes a brand new single with Travis Scott, "Wash Us in the Blood", although, as the New York Times noted in a review, the fresh song is more "lyrically impressionistic, with nods to mass incarceration and other moral concerns". Both parties have already announced the dates for their national conventions where they are expected to nominate Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. "And I'm not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over".

It appears his reality TV star wife Kim Kardashian West could see herself as America's first lady, retweeting the post. He also delivered a rambling, profanity-laden speech in which he discussed alternative universes and his diagnosis of bipolar disorder, which he said was actually sleep deprivation.
