Rapper Kanye West tweeted a cryptic “2024” tweet on Saturday (Sept. 8), which left many fans to go wild in reaction over the weekend. Some have taken the message to mean that Kanye West wants to run for President in 2024.

In the past, West has spoken openly about his friendship with United States President Donald Trump. During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, he also expressed that seeing Trump win the presidential election made him feel like he could do it too.

Whether Kanye West is serious or is perhaps trolling the internet remains to be seen. West’s friend and fellow musician, John Legend, told The Sun podcast that he believes West is serious about running for president.

Legend stated on West running, “Oh, yeah. I think he’s said it multiple times. … I think he’s serious,” Legend told the Sun’s Dan Wootton in a podcast posted Friday.” He added, “I don’t know how he would run … If I were to guess, I’d think he’d probably run as an independent.”
