Rapper Kanye West has applied to vote in New Jersey as a presidential candidate.
The 43-year-old West submitted 1,327 signatures to the state election department, in excess of the 800 needed to set a Monday deadline for independent presidential candidates.
Fashion designer “Yeezy”, who promised to run for the “Birthday” he created, did not come up with a slogan, according to applications.
After years of teasing its fans with a presidential quagmire, on July 4 the West announced it would run to defeat Republican President Donald Trump, who had previously said he supported, and Vice President Joe Biden, a candidate for democracy.
The event, which is currently a resident of Cody, Wyoming, is running on ballots in several other states, including Oklahoma, which it has reportedly allocated $ 35,000 to cover the fee.
The submission in New Jersey comes weeks when he incited backlash at his first rally in South Carolina, where he mistakenly claimed that Harriet Tubman did not free slaves from the south and shared an emotional story that he considered abortion of his daughter North.
Since his announcement to run for president, tabloids have reported that the West is in the midst of a bipolar episode and his family is trying to help him with psychiatric treatment.
The father of four was open in the fight against bipolar disorder, and previously said that “when you̵7;re in this state … everything is a conspiracy.”
Last week, he tweeted that he wanted to divorce his wife Kim Kardashian and accused her mother, Chris Jenner, of involvement in white supremacy.
There are six other independent candidates who applied to vote in November in New Jersey, along with Trump and Biden. The deadline for submission is Monday.
