West first announced his intention to run for President of the United States in 2020 at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 30, 2015.
50 Cent was appearing on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien to discuss the 2016 election, his bankruptcy woes and getting arrested in St. Kitts.
50 Cent said he likes the idea of Kanye West running, before adding: “That’s a lot of responsibility. It’s the same thing with Trump.” Conan responded with, “There’s really no difference between Kanye running or Trump running is what you’re pretty much saying?” to which the rapper responded, “I am saying that.”
50 Cent was arrested in St. Kitts in the Carribean following his performance at the St. Kitts Music Festival in June.
Swearing in public is a misdemeanor in St. Kitts, so 50 Cent was told to perform a profanity free set. However, he still included ‘motherfuckin’ during his performance of ‘P.I.M.P.’ You can watch 50 Cent discussing Kanye West and Donald Trump below.
