Kanye West previously expressed his intention to run for president in 2020. While past political experience isn’t necessarily a prerequisite — as evidenced by the Orange Godzilla nominated by the Republican party — Kanye may be eyeing local office in the short term. At least that’s the takeaway from the his latest piece of merchandise.
A forthcoming reissue of Kanye’s College Dropout includes a hat embroiled with the words, “Make Chicago Great Again”, playing off of Trump’s infamous “Make America Great Again” slogan. News of the bundle leaked out via Def Jam on Wednesday, but the listing was promptly removed as to not preempt Kanye’s mayoral announcement. Rahm, your days may be numbered.
