Popular US rapper-turn-politician, Kanye West, has reportedly dropped out from the forthcoming presidential election.

According to Intelligencer, Steve Kramer, a member of Kanye West’s campaign team, said the Chicago rapper is out of the 2020 presidential poll.

He, however, did not give details on why Kanye dropped his ambition, adding that he would let the publication “know what I know once I get all our stuff cancelled”.

Kramer revealed that the record label CEO had employed about 180 professionals to get his name as a third-party candidate running against Joe Biden (Democrat) and Donald Trump (Republican).

“I have nothing good or bad to say about Kanye. Everyone has their personal decision about why they make decisions,” he said.

“Running for president has to be one of the hardest things for someone to actually contemplate at that level.”

Naija News reports that Kanye West has not officially announced if he has backed out of the presidential race.

Recall that US President Donald Trump had backed the presidential ambition of Mr West.

Trump who described West declaration as “very interesting”, added that West had supported him well in the past.

“If he did it, he would have to view this as a trial run for what’s going to happen in four years,” said Trump,

Trump, however, noted that it may be too late for West to register in some states.

He further noted that he lacks the infrastructure for a presidential bid.
