After announcing his candidacy in a tweet on July 4th, West is dropping out.
Steve Kramer is a get-out-the-vote specialist trying to get Kanye on the ballot in Florida and South Carolina. According to an Intelligencer report, Kramer had people working last weekend to help make it happen.
Kramer told Intelligencer, “He’s out.” Kanye has not made an official statement yet but we’re sure to hear about it when the album drops. (Source: Intelligencer)
Kanye said, “I am taking the red hat off,” explaining that he wore it “as a protest to the segregation of votes in the Black community.” Also, he says that he only likes “Trump hotels and the saxophones in the lobby.” Oh and he’s never voted in his life.
Fred Hammond knew his collaboration with Kanye West would cause a stir but after a rough go from the collaboration with Snoop Dogg in 2018, decided it would be worth the heat.
Hammond told Rolling Stone Magazine that he recounted the scripture to West about Jesus talking to the church, saying, if you all don’t praise me, the very rocks will cry out and praise me (Luke 19:40). He told Kanye, “it’s possible that you’re one of those rocks.”
After losing a couple best friends who called him a sinner after working with Snoop Dogg’s, Fred Hammond, is unbothered by his work with Kanye West stating, “If you’re praising God for real, I’ll praise Him with you. The Bible says let everything that has breath praise the Lord.”
