Rapper Kanye West delivered his first speech on Sunday, since declaring himself the candidate for US Presidential elections. He touched several issues and while addressing the attendees, the rapper broke down over one shocking confession.
While addressing the crowd, he Dark Fantasy singer spoke on the issue of abortion. He said, “There would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy.” He revealed that his parents almost aborted him. Further, he spoke about his daughter, which left him teary-eyed.
Kanye West said, “I almost killed my daughter… even if my wife [Kim Kardashian West] were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn’t want to.”
Kanye West put forth his opinion that abortion should remain legal but financial aid should be provided to the mothers.
“The only thing that can free us is by obeying the rules that were given to us for a promised land. Abortion should be legal because guess what? The law is not by God anyway, so what is legality?” he added.
Kanye West, who announced his bid for the US presidential election earlier this month, held his first campaign in the state of South Carolina. It took place at Exquis Event Center in North Charleston for registered guests only. All attendees had a compulsion of wearing masks, observing social distancing, and signing a COVID-19 liability release form.
West, who announced his White House campaign on 4th July, filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission last week, listing “BDY” — the Birthday Party — as his party affiliation, reports Politico news.
