Formerly known as Kanye West, Ye has been in the middle of all news outlets as his antics surely have been something horribly hard to watch in real time. Outside of his social media antics, Ye has made it a huge point to let everyone know that he will be running for president in 2024.
One of Ye’s first moves, it seems, was to meet with Vladimir Putin on December 15th, 2022. The meeting was signed and sealed by Ye. The topics seemed to be a range of issues, but most pertinent to the conversation would have been the release of Brittney Griner—the American citizen and WNBA athlete, who was, up until just recently, imprisoned in Russia for the possession of cannabis.
Now that Griner has been released due to a prisoner trade between the United States and Russia, the meeting between Ye and Putin is no longer happening. Sources close to the planning told Timcast that Russian officials are in receipt of the following letter and were expecting Ye’s arrival.
These sources also stated that when Ye and Nick Fuentes (who doesn’t have a great background at all) first met three weeks ago, a conversation was had about normalizing the United States’ relationship with Russia, North Korea, and Iran—while also thinking about contrasting himself from the totalitarian nature of these regimes. Allies had begun arranging these discussions with Russian officials weeks prior to today.
What was also said was: “What’s happening in Ukraine is not good for the world.” Sources also shared that it was around the same time that Ye and Fuentes first started discussing relationships with Russia that Ye had received a call from Wack 100, a hip-hop record label executive, who expressed his own concern over the Griner situation.
According to these sources, Wack had been talking to Russian officials with the help of nonprofits in an attempt to gain Griner freedom. In these discussions, Ye’s name was brought up, and the officials began to take the conversation more seriously. Supposedly, when Wack 100 brought this to Ye, the musician was immediately interested and offered to help. They told Timcast that Ye expressed he believed helping to free Griner was consistent with his policies.
It was then added that Ye was still interested in helping to secure the release of any American citizen currently imprisoned abroad. These sources added that Ye is having policy discussions about both domestic and international efforts. A source with the campaign said: “We’re open to anything about freeing all Americans everywhere.”
