Kanye West is sharing more details regarding his presidential run for 2024. The rapper revealed who he'd want to be his right-hand-man, and it's none other than a fellow famous musician, Jay-Z!

Kanye West is taking his 2024 presidential run very seriously, and is revealing who he wants as his right-hand-man! The rapper came out on Kris Kaylin's radio show to discuss his plans in more detail.

On the radio show, West announced that he reached out to his long time friend Jay-Z in regards to being his presidential running mate.

West said while he did reach out to Jay-Z, it may come as a bit of a surprise to Wyoming pastor Michelle Tidball, as he already asked her to be the vice president, should he win the 2024 election.

"She would be open to taking another position if we found another running mate," he said of the pastor.

West then also admitted he and Jay-Z haven't actually spoken in a long time, but said, "The fact that we ain’t talked in so long, that’s how you know we real brothers."

West held a rally over the weekend and talked on some controversial points.

Among the topics discussed, West revealed his views on abortion, as well as blasting the historical icon, Harriet Tubman, saying she "didn’t free enslaved people, but had them go work for other white people instead." 

Jay-Z has yet to comment on where he stands politically with West.
