Will.i.am strongly criticized Kanye West and his willingness to run for president, saying that being head of state is not something to be taken lightly.
Will.i.am called Kanye West’s presidential bid “dangerous”.
The 43-year-old rapper recently revealed that he will run for the next presidential election in November before adding that he will represent the Birthday Party.
The star of the group Black Eyed Peas strongly criticized the husband of Kim Kardashian West, insisting that becoming the world leader was not something to be taken lightly.
He said, “We shouldn’t take this lightly. If you are not serious, it is useless, we do not play with this kind of thing. P ***** n of m *** e what. I don’t even know what kind of things you are going to do ”.
The 45-year-old American producer explains that there are many ways to “change lives” without getting involved in politics.
He added to the Daily Mirror: “There are so many ways to help communities without getting involved in politics and there is no need to run for president. I have been working in the ghetto in which I grew up for 11 years now. I opened a school there and when I started I only had 65 children, now I have 720 and it just keeps growing.
“So you don’t have to be a politician to protect young people. Politics, no. I prefer to do what I do and help as much as I can. ”
In addition, the juror of ‘The Voice UK’ and ‘The Voice Kids’ had already attacked Kanye, in 2018, concerning his biased remarks about slavery.
He said, “When you are a slave, you are an object. You don’t choose to be an object. When you are a slave, you have no access to education. It is not a choice, you are forced.
“I understand that we have the right to say what we think but if you don’t think about what you say, you risk hurting more than one.”
