Kanye West announced his candidacy for the 2020 election during Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards (as one does), and with all the buzz around his candidacy, we’re left wondering which of his many notable collaborators would be making the move from sound board to board room alongside Mr. West.
To give Ye a hand (he’s already busy, and that was before he had to coordinate his super PAC), we’ve narrowed down the list of potential cabinet appointees — from Bey and Jay to Taylor. Check out our picks below:
Vice President: Who better to help Yeezy watch the throne (or Oval Office) than his longtime collaborator Jay Z? Plus, 2015 Jay is a great match, mellowness-wise, for the too-cool-for-school Joe Biden.
Department of State: Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer — no one knows what it’s like to be on the wrong side of Kanye like frenemy Taylor Swift, making her the perfect guardian for his war chest. Plus, who would be a better ambassador than the woman with the most #squadgoals achieved?
Department of Energy: The guy whose got a lot of it — Drake.
Department of Trade: “36 years of doing dirt like it’s Earth Day” make Pusha T an ideal candidate for negotiating international sanctions.
Department of Agriculture: When it comes to making things grow, you’ve gotta look to the guy who’s made plants his passion: Snoop Dogg.
Department of the Interior: Frank Ocean is the one you want on your side when handling any and all matters of an… intimate nature.
Department of Education: Beyoncé will teach you everything you need to know.
