Kanye Takes Presidential Campaign to Haiti, Because…Why Not? Says: “We are here to complete the revolution”


Kanye West took time out — from running for president of the United States and driving Vivendi executives crazy over ownership of his master recordings — to visit Jamaica and Haiti this week. Because, why not? If you’ve got the plane and the money you can just fly around North America, seem important, and accomplish nothing.

The president of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, not realizing nothing will come from this, Tweeted:
“Kanye West’s visit is an opportunity for me to invite the African American community to get more involved in various investments in Haiti. Our country is the ideal place to promote universal culture. Haiti is Africa at the heart of America.”

Kanye Tweeted: “we are here to complete the revolution”

Wait til the cell phone number Kanye gave Moïse rings to a pizza place in Chicago.
