In a video caught by x17online recently, after giving the cameraman a coat that had just been made, Ye invited him in his design studio where he actually got on to the cameraman for calling him Kanye, but then said in a joking manner it’ll take time for us to update. He then declared his intention to run for President in 2024, saying in part, “We’re moving toward the future.” Ye announced he is working on his campaign with Milo Yiannopoulos, who interned for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Ye is seen in the clip saying, “This is Milo right here, working on the campaign.” In the twelve states where Ye was on the ballot in the 2020 election, he received about 70,000 votes as an independent candidate. He had requested to be entered as a write-in candidate elsewhere.

The two then enter Ye’s offices, where he displays a variety of “YE24” merchandise, including sweatshirts and sweatpants, all of which he says will cost just $20. Ye said he is repurposing stuff he did for YEEZY, Gap, Balenciaga, & Adidas to make new apparel. He also said “We need to make sure that everyone can receive the same level of cuts, the same level of food, the same level of water, the same level of education…we’re getting past the past. We’re focused on the future.”

He went on to say: “This is the update. We are the update. That’s all we need to do. As a species, we need to update together. Everything’s been so divisive. Think about when they say ‘diversity’; people look at that like it’s a good thing, but we’re the United States of America. We’re a universe. We’re a university. We’re a republic.”
