Kanye West makes cameo showing for Chicago mayoral hopeful

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Chicago mayoral candidate Amara Enyia speaks as Chance the Rapper, center, and Kanye West listen during a “pull-up” rally for Enyia on Tuesday in Chicago.

CHICAGO >> Fresh off his bizarre Oval Office visit with President Donald Trump, hip-hop megastar Kanye West drew a crowd when he joined a Democratic mayoral hopeful and Chance the Rapper in a sidewalk appearance on Chicago’s South Side.

West didn’t say anything during Amara Enyia’s event in Woodlawn Tuesday afternoon. He looked several times at his phone and after about five minutes told Chance “I’ve got to bounce,” and left with his entourage.

Enyia gave kudos to West, who grew up in Chicago and donated $73,540 this week to settle lingering state fines from her brief 2015 mayoral campaign.

Enyia says she doesn’t share West’s support for Trump, but that she appreciates his help.

Chance endorsed Enyia last week for the 2019 race to replace Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
