Yeezy mogul had sat with Nick Cannon for an episode of his “Cannon’s Class” podcast, where they bonded over their recent controversies and addressed reports that West’s presidential bid is part of a strategy from Republican to siphon votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
Along the line during the discussion, Cannon asked Kanye West if he was in “cahoots” with the GOP and was getting paid to “be a distraction.” But Ye trashed the claims. “Bro, can’t nobody pay me,” said Kanye. “I got more money than Trump.”
Kanye West, who has renounced his support for President Trump, recently claimed that he’s worth close to $5 billion.
I’m topping 5 billion and I’m looking for a new trusted Christian CFO

However, in a previous interview with Forbes, Kanye was asked whether his presidential campaign was targeted to damage Biden’s chances. “I’m not denying it,” he replied.
Meanwhile, Kanye West is still determined to win the presidency despite missing the deadline to get on the ballot in many states. “I’m not running for president. I’m walking,” Ye told Nick.
The full episode of “Cannon’s Class” with Kanye West is set to be released today.
