Talking about becoming President of the United States, West confirmed he'd likely run in 2024, saying: "There will be a time when I will be President of the United States and I will remember...any founder that didn't have the capacity to understand culturally what we're doing."
His ongoing beef with Drake was touched upon as well and, despite his best efforts to kill the feud, it doesn't seem to be repairing anytime soon: "Me and Drake had the disagreement and he refused to speak to me for six months. That was so painful...You cannot be in service to God and be mad at your brother next door...I go to Drake's house with no security and just leave my number."
Virgil Abloh was mentioned also in regards to his appointment as Louis Vuitton artistic director with Yeezy claiming his should have got the job: "I felt like it was supposed to be me. I was the Louis Vuitton Don. People still called me the Louis Vuitton Don on the street"
The most exciting news, however, comes in the form of another album announcement as Kanye revealed that 'Jesus Is Born' on Christmas.
