Kanye West never shies away from the spotlight, and with over a week into reactivating his Twitter account, the rapper/designer has already flooded social media with teases of upcoming releases, sharing life advice, and most recently, expressing his love for Donald Trump during a private discussion with Hot 97’s Ebro Darden.
Since that reveal, “Keep America Great” posters that incorporate West’s face are mysteriously appearing in cities like New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles in a guerilla-like marketing scheme, as the ads utilize President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign slogan with the hashtag, “#KANYE2024.”
While Kanye West has indicated before of a 2020 presidential run, the ads are not conducted by West or his team, as it appears to be the work of anonymous street artists who are not affiliated with Kanye West.
According to The Gateway Pundit, a far-right, pro-Trump website, the artists shared an official statement regarding the posters, saying:
“Kanye West tore a hole in the fabric of reality this weekend by recognizing the wisdom of YouTuber Candace Owens in the most publicly unfiltered way possible, via Twitter. Donald Trump has proved to all Americans that clarity of vision and the ability to persuade are much stronger assets for a President than political experience. Kanye appears to get this more than anyone else out there. Candace Owens is fighting for individual sovereignty, self-responsibility and being recognized by Kanye is a watershed moment for this country. We don’t know if Kanye wants to be President, Trump has proved that it creates a huge amount of enemies, but recognizing universal cultural truths is something that cultural icons are better at than politicians, it’s how they build success.”
