Rapper and producer Kanye West recently came on the Joe Rogan Experience where he went into detail about his controversial presidential bid, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

The 43-year-old also touched on several topics including race and politics while also discussing how his faith had gotten him to where he now is. "It was one thing god put in my coronary heart in 2015". During a almost three-hour-long conversation on Joe Rogen's podcast, the 43-year-old rapper and fashion designer talked about why he chose to run for president, saying it was God "calling me to take this position". "When I first thought of it, I just started laughing to myself, and all this joy came over my body". "I wasn't saved, I just had a calling, saying, 'Just go make this church'". Rogan asked. "Like, one of the things that I-when anybody ever talks about you to me, they say 'Well, he's all over the place.' And I say, 'I think he's got a different power source.' Like if you look at the way everybody interfaces with the world, there's a universal power". In a world full of 280-character tweets and 15-second Insta stories, it was refreshing to hear one of the most influential cultural voices of the last decade-and-a-half have a chance to sit back, relax, and just give his side, without fear of being taken out of context, or without being pressured into a viral soundbite by a biased interviewer with five minutes and falling ratings.

"My calling is to be the leader of the free world", West told Rogan.

West maintains that he still could win the November 3 election - "which would be the best option for America", he said - but his goals are big.

"I'm willing to [reveal my contracts] because it's the right thing to do", Kanye explained around the 12:40 mark. I'm a great leader because I listen and I'm empathetic and I feel the entire Earth. I'm just telling the truth, and telling the truth is insane in a world full of lies.

Kanye West Won't Change Abortion Laws If He Becomes President. He had also shed tears during a campaign rally after claiming his father nearly had him aborted before birth.

He added, 'The contracts are made to rape the artists. This is a negative thought I'm putting into the universe - but I thought about Bruce and Brandon Lee.

West spent a large portion of the interview discussing his new venture into religious music.

"When I talk, it's not a rant", West said. "Of my $5 billion net worth, music is negative $4 million".

Afterwards, Rogan, who's also well known for his work as a comedian and UFC commentator, appeared to be pleased with their conversation when he teased it on his Instagram page. "And I knew I had the confidence that I would be able to turn that around".

'Beyond my expectations, and I think people are going to have a much better understanding and appreciation of how this man thinks, ' Rogan wrote in the caption of a photo showing himself alongside West.
