North Carolina rap superstar DaBaby is ready for President Kanye West. The hip-hop heavyweight has shared his support and pull for Yeezy to become the next head of state.
DaBaby Votes Kanye West
On Wednesday, Baby went to his social media pages with the huge announcement. Instead of showing support for current president Donald Trump or his Democratic opponent Joe Biden, DB said he’s putting his trust in West.
Hours prior, Kanye West went to his Twitter page and gave Baby a random shout-out.
“Lesssgoooooooooooo … Da baby ad lib by the way” -Kanye West’s Twitter
The announcement comes hours after California senator Kamala Harris officially joined forces with Joe Biden as his vice president running mate. Joe credited Harris’ past work in politics and determination to look out for the common person as a key reason for choosing her.
“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate. … Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.” -Joe Biden’s Twitter
Wait, There’s More
A few days ago, independent head of state candidate hopeful Kanye West made headlines for not securing the minimum amount of signatures needed to appear on an Illinois presidential candidate ballot.
The Illinois native, running as an independent, reportedly fell short by 1,300 signatures according a state hearing officer who reviewed the number of nominations submitted by West’s party. In order to make the ballot, West had to submit 2,500 signatures, but Friday’s hearing officer only recorded 1,200 signatures. The official determination will be submitted on August 21, when the finalized ballot is announced by the Illinois State Board of Elections. (Fox News)
Earlier the same week, Kanye sent out a cryptic message about his goal of winning.
Before You Go
Last week, buzz developed about Kanye allegedly confirming his plan isn’t to win the presidency but to take away votes from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and help keep Donald Trump in office.
Amid various reports that Republican and Trump-affiliated political operatives are trying to get Kanye West onto various state ballots for November’s presidential election, the billionaire rap superstar indicated, in an interview by text today, that he was in fact running to siphon votes from the presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden. Asked about that directly, West said that rather than running for president, he was “walking,” quickly adding that he was “walking . . . to win.” (Forbes)
