The rapper is among the biggest donors to Clinton's campaign, according to reports

New reports claim that Kanye West was among the biggest donors to Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign.

Clinton is aiming to be the Democrats’ candidate for the 2016 US election, as West aims to run for office himself in 2020.

According to latest Presidential campaign fundraising figures, according to Buzzfeed, West donated an unspecified amount to Clinton’s team, along with other famous names like Matt Damon, Tom Hanks, and Jessica Alba.

Meanwhile, it’s also been revealed that Clinton’s camp spent $15,000 (£9,000) on “catering, food and beverages” at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in New York during September.

Hillary Clinton has previously said that she “would not rule out” Kanye West becoming her Vice President.

West spoke about his radical ideas for electoral reform in a recent Vanity Fair interview.

“When I run for president, I’d prefer not to run against someone,” he said. “I would be like ‘I want to work with you.’I think all the people running right now have something that each of the others needs. But the idea of this separation and this gladiator battle takes away from the main focus that the world needs help and the world needs all the people in a position of power or influence to come together.”

In a recent interview with NME, Rihanna revealed that she is waiting for West to be free so she can finish recording her new album with him. Similarly, Justin Bieber has said that he too is working with West on new music that boasts a “New York vibe.”
