After it was announced that Donald J. Trump will become the 45th president of the United States, various Hip Hop personalities flocked to their Twitter accounts to call on one of their own, Kanye West, to follow up on his promise to run for office in 2020.

The Hip Hop community, like many other segments of the U.S. population, have largely criticized Trump throughout his campaign, with the likes of Will Smith, Childish Gambino and Anderson .Paak publicly expressing their distaste for the now President-elect.

Kanye West announced his plans to run for President in 2020 at the MTV Video Music Awards last August. Since then, Barack Obama, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have all offered advice to Yeezy, albeit advice that’s jovial and good-humoured.

While speaking to TMZ in mid-September, Jamie Foxx said that Donald Trump’s political story will only serve to benefit Kanye West’s chances of successfully running for president in 2020.
