Rapper and actor Ice Cube, in an interview for the promotion of the movie Straight Outta Compton has thrown his weight behind Kanye West‘s bid to run for the White House.
When asked if he would vote for the controversial rapper, Cube responded, “I’m voting for Kanye. Why not? Who’s better than Kanye to run?“
You will recall that at the recent MTV VMAs, Kanye gave a lengthy 13-minute acceptance speech for the Video Vanguard Award he won, in which he formally said he would be running for the 2020 presidential election. The audience however gave a resounding applause to the political declaration which many felt caught the whole world by surprise.
Despite his vocal support for Kanye though, Ice Cube revealed that he isn’t very much a political animal. When he was asked if he would be interested in Kanye’s VP spot which Taylor Swift has been tipped by fans to take, Ice Cube responded, “No, I’m not into politics like that.”
I guess Kanye will have to make do with Taylor Swift as his running mate then.
