After recently announcing he’s “distancing” himself from politics, Kanye West donated $126K to Chicago mayoral candidate Amara Enyia. The rapper said he was stepping away from the political scene after Candace Owens used the rapper’s name to push her “Blexit” movement. However according to sources, West donated $126,460 to Chicago Mayoral candidate Amara Enyia’s campaign. This marks the second donation ‘Ye has made within the past two weeks. Yeezy previously donated $73,540 to Friends of Amara Enyia which was the exact amount she needed to pay off fines from a previously mayoral bid. Kanye’s support for the Chicago mayoral candidate came shortly after Chance The Rapper held a press conference at Chicago’s City Hall to publicly endorse Amara Enyia while shutting down rumors that he was going to run for mayor.
