Kanye West gives Chicago mayoral candidate Amara Enyia another $126K


Star hip-hop artist Kanye West tweeted this week that he was “distancing myself from politics,” but that new posture apparently doesn’t apply to the Chicago mayor’s race.

West late Wednesday plugged another $126,460 into the campaign of West Side activist and mayoral candidate Amara Enyia, state campaign finance records show. That brings West’s total support for her campaign to an even $200,000 after the rapper and designer contributed $73,540 last week to help Enyia pay off fines in the exact same amount that she faced with state election officials for not properly filing quarterly campaign finance reports.

West, who has preferred to go by “Ye” of late, made the donation after briefly appearing with Enyia at a sidewalk rally last week in Woodlawn. West did not speak at the event.

“I also have to give a shoutout and kudos to Ye, who is from the South Side and is invested and committed to giving back to our city,” Enyia said of West at the rally last week.
