Kanye West Wants All Chicago Schools to Have Uniforms
Remember when Kanye West said he was running for president in 2020 at last year's VMAs? Well, in the face of the country's current presidential candidates, the rapper seems to be moving like he's on the campaign trail more than ever. In fact, he wants to start a new initiative in his hometown of Chicago that marries education and fashion.
TMZ cameras caught 'Ye on the streets of New York City as he was signing autographs outside his swanky SoHo penthouse. The cameramen took the opportunity to ask Kanye if he feels he left anything out of his seven-minute speech at last Sunday's 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. Aside from wanting to promote love, Kanye got specific on how he wants to help Chi-Town more.
"I wanna do school uniforms for all the schools in Chicago," said Kanye in between signing autographs. "Just as a starting point for ending classism and bullying worldwide."
Ever since he made the announcement back in 2015, fellow rappers like Ice Cube, 50 Cent and N.O.R.E. have publicly endorsed Kanye's aspiration to run for Commander-in-Chief. And he did promise everyone in the nation a free pair of adidas Yeezys if elected. So that means he's got outlandish campaign promises and idealistic initiatives ready to go—just like a real politician.
'Ye will be in New York for the next few weeks prepping for the release of the newest season of his Yeezy adidas line. Yeezy Season 4 will take place Sept. 7 during New York Fashion Week. Last Sunday (Aug 28) the West touched down in New York for the 2016 VMA's, held at Madison Square Garden, where he debuted the racy music video for "Fade" live.
