Hip-hop artist and Kim Kardashian spouse Kanye West made a visit to Trump Tower in New York on Tuesday to meet with president-elect Donald Trump.

Although the purpose of the meeting is still not clear, the rapper made numerous tweets about the meeting, saying he discussed “multicultural issues” with the billionaire.

"I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues," West posted.

Trump stood amid reporters saying that the musician is a “good man” and they have been friends “for a long time.” And that the only thing they discussed was "life." 

West posted afterward, “I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”

And "These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago."

No other details of the meeting were discussed, but West also made an ambiguous Tweet reading only “#2024” which lead followers and media outlets to believe he would run for president in that year.

Recently, fans at a concert in California were surprised after West abruptly admitted he would have voted for Trump at the end of his performance.

“I told y'all I didn't vote, right?" he told the crowd. "But if I would've voted, I would've voted for Trump."

The rapper was recently released from the hospital following treatment for exhaustion.

He has also canceled his remaining concert tour dates which were scheduled through New Year’s Eve.

"The remaining dates on the SAINT PABLO TOUR have been canceled," Live Nation said in a statement. "Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase."
