Kanye West released a bombshell on Thursday in NYC, that he will not only be running for the presidential election in 2024 but he will do so with a new name. ‘’I won’t have to run for prez in 2024… I’ll walk, with new name’’. Said the rapper Kanye at the Fast Company Innovation Festival.

Kanye West how ever did not get the reaction he was expecting at all from the crowd when he told them he will be running for president in 2024 … as a matter of fact, the audience laughed,and Kanye looked at the crowd with a straight face and said, “What y’all laughing at?”

He went further to explain that by 2024, Yeezy brand “will have created so many jobs, I’m not gonna run for President I’ll walk.” But the crowd was not cheering at all as he had hoped instead there was an uncomfortable silence, and he further explain how celebrities including himself are terrified to express how they truly feel.

He also said his wife, Kim Kardashian WEST — who was also present in the audience at the time would probably tell him later that he shouldn’t have been so outspoken during the event.

The rapper also complained about Forbes’ reluctance to label him a billionaire and announced he’ll change his name to “Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West” … just to stick it to the outlet.

Ye also did not stop there, as he went ahead and made a claim that …  Martin Luther King Jr wasn’t assassinated because he had a dream, but because he wanted to talk about economic empowerment in the black community — and added that, “The reason why I say these things out loud in this way is so I won’t be killed.”
