CHICAGO (AP) — Hip-hop megastar Kanye West told his Twitter followers that he was “distancing” himself from politics even as he sent a big check to boost a Democratic mayoral hopeful in his hometown of Chicago.

West tweeted this week that he realizes “I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in.” That follows his Oval Office visit last month during which he dropped the F-word while talking with President Donald Trump.

State campaign records show West gave $126,460 to Amara Enyia’s mayoral campaign, a week after he donated $73,540 and appeared with her for a sidewalk news conference on Chicago’s South Side. He didn’t speak and left after about five minutes.

Other Democrats have questioned Enyia for accepting money from a high-profile Trump supporter. But she’s said she appreciates West’s backing.

  1. KW means well, however he is lacking the KEY TO SUCCESS, which is ‘WHEN THE YOUTH & WISDOM [your Elders] ARE UNITED or MERGE. Remember my young brothers & sisters ‘HELL IS PAVED WITH GOOD INTENTIONS.’

  2. Passing Through!! on said:

    I agree Amber, we don’t want his black ass. He sold out married that white whore & licked the boots of trump there’s NO coming back from that.

  3. See, black folks can show you bett4er than they can tell you. Kanye sells, merchandise, aint doing much of nothing. See we as blacks know of blacks like this and when the “other side” gets tired of you for whatever reason, you get toss back to blacks BUT we do not want you. Stay on the other side.
