Yeezy fans thought they’d been left high and dry a couple weeks ago when the rapper ended his show at The Forum early, but fear not—the hip hop kingpin has kept his promise and is bringing the show back for round 7 in Los Angeles on November 20. Not only is he giving attendees of the November 3 show a complimentary pass, he is also teaming up with music programs and schools in the Inglewood area to give out a large number of free tickets to inner-city students.
Alright ‘Ye, we guess you’re forgiven.
Hopefully fans will also find it in their hearts to give the performer a second shot. Kanye promised to “do better next time,” so all eyes are on him this time around. This shouldn’t be a problem though, since we all know the artist thrives in the spotlight.
At the MTV Video Music Awards last year, West announced plans to run for the 2020 presidential election. Here’s what President Elect Trump had to say about it:
Though Kanye may not have been in a reliable state of mind when he made the announcement, as he admitted to having “rolled up a little somethin'” before his stage entrance, he discussed his plans in an interview with Annie Mac on BBC1 Radio:
"We are numb, we’re numb to 500 kids getting killed in Chicago a year, we’re numb to the fact that it was seven police shootings in the beginning of July. We’re numb to places on the earth that we don’t live, like our life is okay but it’s okay for other people’s lives to not be okay. When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views, I don’t have views on politics, I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive I’m going to try to do it.”
Looks like Kanye is already getting started on his plans on changing America for the better; even if he isn't completely serious about running for president in four years, we do love the star for giving back.
