Kanye West has denied speculation he is running for president in an effort to help Donald Trump gain re-election and insisted that no one is bankrolling his campaign.
The rapper discussed his unlikely presidential bid in an interview with Nick Cannon's podcast, Cannon's Class.
In a preview clip of the interview, West brought up rumors that he is in 'cahoots' with Republicans.
'They're saying that they're paying you to do what you're doing to be a distraction,' Cannon said in reply.
West quickly quashed that suggestion, saying: 'Bro, can't nobody pay me! I got more money than Trump!'

West discussed his unlikely presidential bid in an interview with Nick Cannon's Cannon Class podcast airing Tuesday. Cannon shared a preview of the interview on Instagram on Monday
The pair shared a hearty laugh before Cannon said: 'But people are saying that you're a distraction, and because they don't want four more years of Trump, maybe you might.
'You want an alternative of four years of Ye. Is that realistic right now in 2020?'
'I'm not running for president - I'm walking,' West replied.
The interview recorded at the West Mountain Ranch in Cody, Wyoming, will be released in full on Tuesday.
West's claim that he's richer than Trump appears to be untrue, as Forbes lists the former's net worth at $1.3billion and the latter's at $2.1billion.
But the rapper disputed Forbes' estimate when it came out back in April, saying that his true worth exceeds $3billion.
West got a big laugh from Cannon when he said: 'I'm not running for president - I'm walking'
