Kanye West was in Chicago recently and told reporters he was looking forward to working towards fixing the crime-riddled city. Earlier this year Kanye took a shot at Obama by tweeting that Obama failed to fix Chicago.
According to The Daily Wire:
West said he plans on returning regularly to his hometown because he believes he can contribute to some of the important work being done in the city.
“How does it feel to be home in Chicago?” a reporter from Fox 32 asked.
He added that he was in Chicago to work with Chance the Rapper on his album. Chance, a fixture in Chicago culture and politics, recently launched an effort to subsidize education in the city and is reportedly looking at Kanye as a potential partner in his efforts.
“I love the city, and I am going to be here a lot more….It is a super inspiring place that made me who I am,” said Kanye. “I believe there is some work that I can contribute to.”

Earlier this year Kanye expressed his displeasure with Obama:

Kanye West’s relationship with Trump could be a catalyst to getting the problems in Chicago under control. Obama failed, maybe Kanye and Trump can succeed.
