Kanye West Set To Perform At Democratic National Committee Event

Run DNC.

Kanye West says he'll be running for president in 2020, but first he's going to rub elbows with politicians in San Francisco this Red October. 

The rapper is slated to perform at San Francisco's Warfield theater for a DNC fundraising event on Oct. 10, according to NBC Bay Area. The outlet reports that tickets will be going anywhere from $250 to $10,000 for patrons to hear songs from West's new album, "Swish." President Obama is also expected to make an appearance. 

Though West has been public about his support for Obama, the rapper recently made comments praising Republican candidate Dr. Ben Carson. 

"As soon as I heard [Ben] Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like, this is the most brilliant guy," said West in an interview with Vanity Fair

West isn't the only one in his family to get political, as supermodel sister-in-law Kendall Jenner recently made a video for "Rock the Vote" about suffragettes.

In early August, the rapper and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, also posted this epic selfie with Hillary Clinton. 

Pretty soon, that hashtag will be #KanyeForPresident.
