Hip-hop, sound and fashion mogul Kanye West put the fire and the excitement beneath the millennial generation when he announced at the 2015 MTV VMAs that he would be gunning for the Oval Office in 2020.
While we’re sure there’s a bottomless list of reasons that Ye’s most devout fans would rock a “Kanye for President” T-shirt, hip-hop’s proclaimed rock star Lil Uzi Vert only needs one.
During the 2017 VMAs, Baller Alert caught up with the XO TOUR Llif3” artist to ask his thoughts on a possible Yeezy presidency. His support for the G.O.O.D. Music top dog comes as no surprise. And considering his most recent fashion controversy, his answer might not come as one either.
“Yeah — ask me why,” he responded when asked whether Kanye had his vote. “Kanye know how to dress, and Lil Uzi know how to dress. Don’t let ‘em tell you no different.”
Such a casual political stance from the Philly emcee would make sense. Much like Kanye, Uzi has weathered his fair share of controversy surrounding his fashion taste. And even more like the Yeezy fashion brand owner, Uzi has approached the indifference with the same IDGAF attitude as well.
Hey, it’s still a more reasonable stance than any of those from Donald Trump’s supporters.
Watch him advocate Yeezy for president below.
