The outspoken rapper and designer revealed in a new interview that the statement he made about pursuing political office at the MTV Video Music Awards last month – where he admitted he was high – was no joke, and that he will follow through by putting himself in running.

“I’ve got five years before I go and run for office and I’ve got a lot of research to do, I’ve got a lot of growing up to do,” he told Vanity Fair.

“My dad has two masters degrees. My mum has a PhD, she used to work at Operation PUSH”

Operation PUSH is the non-profit organisation that was founded by Jesse Jackson to pursue social justice, civil rights and political activism.

“Somehow the more and more creative I get, the closer and closer I get to who I was as a child. When I was a child, I was holding my mom’s hand at Operation PUSH. I think it’s time,” he added.

He went on to say that as much as he loves rap – and will always be a ‘rock star’ – he at some point wants to become his ‘mother’s son.’

West said; ‘It’s fun to be a rock star, and I’ll never not be one I guess, but there’ll be a point where I become my mother’s child.

‘With all the things I’ve done that people would consider to be accomplishments, what’s the point where I become the person that Donda and Raymond West raised? My parents’ child.’

He also revealed there is one candidate running for office right now he is very impressed with – Republican candidate, Ben Carson.

“As soon as I heard Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like this is the most brilliant guy,” he said. – Voice
