Kanye West insists he’s serious about a future White House bid, saying it “100 percent can happen.”

“2024,” the rapper said, when asked about a potential presidential run during a wide-ranging Thursday interview with Power 92 Chicago’s DJ Pharris.

“If I decide to do it, it will be done. I’m not gonna try,” West, 41, replied when asked if he would “try” entering the political world.


The “Yeezus” rapper, who’s married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, first publicly announced plans for a political bid during a 2015 appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

“I have decided in 2020 to run for president,” West declared at the time.

“When I run, I’m not gonna f--k up the money,” West, a fashion designer who runs an apparel company, said Thursday. “And what I like about being the founder of a … $1.8 billion company, is this is awesome training because America is a company.”

“You should not be president unless you ran a multibillion-dollar business, in my opinion,” West added.

He was photographed sporting a “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hat in April.

"When people ask me about the Trump thing, it's like, I like Bernie. I like Hillary. I like Obama. I love everybody. I'm actually riding with everybody,” West said.

A potential 2024 White House bid would ensure that West isn't running against Trump.

“For someone to say you can't ride with both sides ... it's like a modern idea of gang banging or something," he said. "Even red or blue — it's still red or blue. It's divisions. We don't need to think in divisions. We need to think in arms because we're actually one race, one people, one civilization.”

The performer recently apologized for controversial comments in which he suggested slavery “sounds like a choice.”

“I’m sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment, and I’m sorry for people that felt let down by that moment,” West said in an interview earlier this week.

"I honestly wanna talk about racism,” West told Power 92. “People are like, 'Man, Trump's racist.' If racism was a deal-breaker then we need to get out of America, period.”

Trump, West said, “just shows you what it is. It's like the grass is cut low now. It's like we get to really see it.”

“That's my whole thing — exposure,” West continued. “Now you can really make a decision for yourself, because otherwise, we would've been pacified. And being pacified, you're not gonna cure the cancer. Now we're woke for real."
