Kanye West Closes Out Day One of iHeartRadio Music Festival [VIDEO]
Kanye West closed out the iHeartRadio Music Festival with an exciting performance for fans at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Friday (Sept. 18). The Chicago rhymer, who announced his presidential run in 2020, made a slight reference to his possible run during his performance.
According to the Associated Press, actor Jared Leto introduced Yeezy as a “visionary” and “maybe the future president of the United States.” For the first-half of his set, West performed mostly in the dark with just only the backlit of yellow spotlights shadowing his every move onstage. The 38-year-old rapper performed a selection of songs from his expansive discography, including “Stronger,” “Heartless,” “FourFiveSeconds” and “Runaway.”
It was when he wrapped up his set with “Only One,” his lullaby ballad to his daughter North West, that he made a slight reference to his 2020 presidential run. "You'll be the man you always knew you could be -- 2020," West sang to the crowd much to their delight.
