Kanye West Stops By Chicago Mayoral Candidate’s Campaign Event

Kanye West is showing his support for Chicago’s mayoral candidate, Amara Enyia.

On Monday the rapper, 41, donated $73,540 to Enyia’s campaign and spent his Tuesday rallying behind her during an event.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Yeezy didn’t speak and only spent about five minutes standing on stage with Enyia and Chance the Rapper.

“Celebrity endorsements are great, but in my view they have to be tied to something of substance. And the specific conversation was warranted with Kanye, to make sure there was alignment on the policy platform and issues I’ve advocated for,” Enyia told the outlet on Tuesday. “So we definitely had a conversation, and when we talk about what Chicago needs and what it will take to get us there, he sees this campaign as a vital part of that, and that is what prompted him to support us and get over this financial barrier we have had.”

Last week Chance voiced his endorsement for Enyia: “If you’re willing to see what this city could be, you will vote for [Amara].”

He’s even posted a few photos of himself with the potential mayor of Chicago to his Instagram.

Chance has slammed West’s political affiliations after the “Gold Digger” rapper voiced his support for U.S. President Donald Trump.

“I think he does a lot of stuff for the attention of the masses, to get that stuff documented and made into history,” Chance told “The Joe Budden Podcast”. “But I think also a lot of times, the attention that he may be seeking is at the immediate detriment of some people that may need that attention more.”
