Kanye West — who famously announced a 2020 presidential run at the VMA Awards last August — is emulating another candidate. Like Donald Trump and the debates, the rap star is talking about skipping the Grammys.
He’s nominated again. And his goal is to win 100 Grammys before he joins the stellar rap chorus.
On a day in which social media was buzzing over West’s supposed financial plight (claiming to be $53 million in debt and asking for Mark Zuckerberg’s help), the Grammy Awards are poised to give him another platform.

If Kanye runs for President he’ll have to release his personal finances and we’ll find out how much debt he’s actually in

I’m concerned that when Kanye runs for President some people will hold these tweets against him.
