After years of speculation that Kanye West would make some sort of presidential run, the rapper tweeted on Saturday (July 4th) that he would be running for President...this year.

This comes days after the rapper released a new single with Travis Scott ("Wash Us In Blood") and was featured on a collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign & Skrillex ("Ego Death").

Tesla co-founder and friend of Kanye's, Elon Musk, tweeted his support.

As of June Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson had the highest odds of anyone not named Donald Trump, or Joe Biden to win the 2020 election.
