Kanye West isn’t the biggest fan of social media, but every once in a while, the rapper loves to hit up Twitter or Instagram just for the laughs. His latest Twitter escapades are no different.
West joked on his platform recently that he “no longer (has) a manager.” “I can’t be managed,” the award-winner wrote. He went on: “I’m nobody’s client.”
And while the gossip tabloids are speculating that he’s literally referring to his management team, it seems like he’s making metaphorical statements. Or, in other words, allegorical remarks. However, the rapper went on to say that he fired his last lawyer because they refused to work for him full-time.
“So now, I hired a CEO and CFO and have two full-time lawyers.” Additionally, Kanye made some favorable comparisons – and maybe even giant leaps – between himself and the legendary Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Howard Hughes, and Walt Disney.
when we become president we have to change the name of the plane from Air Force one to Yeezy force one ☝️

He might be getting ahead of himself when comparing him to historic American figures like the aforementioned men.
Either way, on Tuesday night, Kanye wrote – and mysteriously we might add – “2024,” which appeared to allude to a possible presidency. Will the rapper really run to be the president of the United States?
We highly doubt it, because of the amount of times a celebrity has mentioned it in passing has rendered all claims pretty much null and void.
First, it was Kanye back in 2016, then Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Oprah, and now Kanye for the second time. One person wrote on social media, “Man, I really get sick of hearing about celebrities running to be the president.” It appears as though America has had enough of celebrities and politics. The two don’t mix well.
And, in a tweet which appeared to reference TMZ, the rapper said Harvey Levin should never use the word “erratic” to describe someone as successful as himself.
Just a few hours later, Kanye explained that “when we become president,” they would have to change the name of the airplane to Yeezy Force One rather than Air Force One. Like him or not, one can’t help but laugh at the subtle shade of Nike Air’s, West’s competitor in the shoe-game.
