If Kanye West is out of the race for president, he hasn't gotten the memo. The mega producer unveiled his first campaign ad on Twitter on Monday.
He captioned the ad: "we stepping out on faith."
Standing against a backdrop of a black and white flag, Kanye said, "America. What is America's destiny? What is best for our nation? Our people? What is just, true justice? We have to think about all these things together as a people."
The father of four went on to discuss his vision for America.
"To contemplate our future, to live up to our dream, we must have vision. We as a people will revive our nation's commitment to faith, to what our Constitution calls the free exercise of religion, including, of course, prayer. Through prayer, faith can be restored," he said.
Kanye, 43, hopes to become this nation's 46th president. But he has a steep uphill climb against Donald Trump and his challenger Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
"We as a people are called to a greater purpose than ourselves," said Kanye. "We are not only a beacon to the world, but we should be servants to each other. To encourage each other, to help each other to lift up each other.
"Our fellow Americans, that we may all prosper together. We have to act on faith, with the sure knowledge that we are pursuing the right goals and doing the right things. We will build a stronger country by building stronger families. Families are the building blocks of society, of a nation. By turning to faith, we will be the kind of nation, the kind of people God intends us to be."
