Kanye West opened up about his life and presidential plans during an appearance on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast.
In the nearly three-hour episode, which was uploaded on to Spotify on Saturday, the 43-year-old rapper said his renewed Christian faith and current run for president were inspired by God.
“It was something that God put in my heart back in 2015. A few days before the MTV awards it hit me in the shower,” West shared. “When I first thought of it, I just started laughing to myself and all this joy came over my body, through my soul.”

West said he believes his creativity and goal-setting personality makes him a strong contender compared to President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
“There couldn't be a better time to put a visionary in the captain's chair,” he said.

“If it's in God's plan that part of my path is to be the governor then that's fine, but my calling is to be the leader of the free world,” he said.
