"Guess what, I’ll take Kanye West to North Korea with me."
Dennis Rodman has confirmed that he plans to invite Kanye West to North Korea, after the basketball icon struck up the unlikeliest of friendships with Kim Jong-un.
Rodman, 57, has met the despotic leader during several visits to the secretive hermit state, with the pair bonding over a mutual love of basketball.
Now, it seems that Kanye could get involved too – with Rodman extending an invitation after the rapper previously revealed his love of the former Chicago Bulls star.
“I think that he (Kim) respects me as far as understanding my views”, Rodman told US Weekly.
“And Kanye, he’s doing amazing work around the world so I respect him, too. So hopefully one day we’ll get together and collaborate on certain things. Guess what, I’ll take Kanye West to North Korea with me.”
If Kanye accepts the unlikely offer, the visit could occur as early as September.
“Matter of fact, I’m going to invite him next time I go to North Korea. If the door’s open in September, I will invite Kanye West with me to go to North Korea with me”, Rodman confirmed.
“If he wants to make an album about that he’ll be there for like six to seven days, and he’ll see what’s going on. Now, go make a song about this. So here you go.”
Rodman and Kanye have enjoyed a close friendship after being pictured together at a Black Lives Matter rally – before Kanye tweeted a photo of a signed basketball jersey earlier this month.
The pair are also vocal supporters of US President Donald Trump.
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Kanye has headed back to his native Chicago to start work on a new collaborative LP with Chance The Rapper.
