Kanye West has been seen as a firebrand political figure in recent times, releasing songs with the titles “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves”, which both focused on contemporary racism in the US, on the 2013 album Yeezus. (Yeezus being the artist’s self-styled title, often seen to relate to Jesus Christ. He has also declared “I am a God” on multiple occasions)

Before the 2016 Presidential election, West declared that he would run for the Presidency in 2020 .

But in a recent performance in California, he was recorded saying that although he did not vote in 2016, if he did he would have voted for Trump.

This declaration was met with boos from the crowd.

Three days later, West entered the UCLA Medical Centre and was treated for exhaustion after police were called to his house after reports of a disturbance .
