Kanye West is an American singer. He also writes songs. He is a fashion designer, too. He is 43 years old. He is very successful.

West says that he wants to become a US president. The election is this year. However, it takes a long time to get ready for the election.

West must prepare many papers. He needs a team of people. Nobody knows if West is ready.

Some people say that West is a clever businessman. West has a new single. West will have a new album out soon. Some people think that West does not really want to be a president. However, West wants to make more people more interested in his music.

Difficult words: election (when people vote for someone to get a job, usually in the government or politics), businessman (someone who works in business, or he knows how to make a lot of money), single (the most popular song in a music album).
