Kanye West, who is currently running for president, just released a new campaign video on Instagram urging Americans to work together and turn to their faith in order to insight change. He also released a new song about his presidential run.
“What is best for our Nation? Our people? What is just? True justice? We have to think about all these things together as a people,” West says in the ad.
“We as a people will revive our nation’s commitment to faith. To what our Constitution calls ‘the free exercise of religion,’ including, of course, prayer,” he goes on to state. The campaign ad ends with the big letters “VOTE” sprawling across the screen and encourages Americans to vote to make a positive change in their country.
In addition to the campaign video, Kanye also dropped a song in a Twitter post, with the caption “The whole team is so energized that I had to release theme music NAH NAH NAH.” The song is set to scenes from Star Wars and a UFC knockout fight. In the song, he raps about his Presidential campaign, saying, “next time you text, can it wait? You are talkin’ to a presidential candidate.”
The song is also about how we should trust God for protection and let Him fight our battles for us, as evidenced by the lyrics, “Overthrow, send the drones in. All the maneuvers, feelin’ closed in. I don’t need to strike back, I let God fight my battles,” making references to Star Wars.
Before the song finishes, Kanye talks about how the news media is not honest, stating, “But the news ain’t on us. All the news ain’t on us. All the news ain’t honest. They wanna ignore me, rewrite the story.”
