Kanye West revealed he contracted COVID-19 and is serious about running for president in a recent interview with Forbes.

The rapper described his battled with coronavirus saying, “Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it. I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!”

He also discussed his thoughts on a potential COVID-19 vaccine. “It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed … So when they say the way we’re going to fix COVID is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven. I’m sorry when I say they, the humans that have the Devil inside them. And the sad thing is that, the saddest thing is that we all won’t make it to heaven, that there’ll be some of us that do not make it. Next question.”

During the interview, West said he has already picked a vice president and has sought guidance from Elon Musk, whom West proposed would be the new head of the U.S. space program should he be elected.

West stated that he wouldn’t run on either the Democrat or Republican side, but would run under what he called the “Birthday Party.”

“Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday,” the rapper said.

West has talked about becoming president for quite some time. According to the rapper, he has been thinking about it since the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.

“It’s when I was being offered the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Awards at MTV,” West told Forbes. “I remember being at my mom’s house, my mother-in-law [Kris Jenner], because my house was being worked on, she calls me ‘son’ and I call her ‘mom,’ I was in the shower thinking, I write raps in the shower. It hit me to say, ‘you’re going to run for president’ and I started laughing hysterically, I was like this is the best, I’m going to go out there and they’re going to think I’m going to do these songs and do this for entertainment, how rigged awards shows are, and then say I’m president. And I just laughed in the shower, I don’t know for how long, but that’s the moment it hit me.”
