Chano quote-tweeted Kanye's new tribute song to his late mother Donda and wrote "And y’all out here tryna convince me to vote for Biden. Smfh", referring to the Democratic Party nominee who is running against incumbent president Donald Trump

The Grammy-winning artist later posed the question: “Are u more pro biden or anti ye and why? I get that you’ll want to reply that you’re just tryna ‘get trump out’ but in this hypothetical scenario where you’re replacing Trump, can someone explain why Joe Biden would be better??"

After reading fans' responses, he said: "I finally got the answer now. I understand. Yall trust Biden more than yall trust Ye. I think I understand why, I just don’t feel the same way."

When a fan asked him to name "one solid platform" that Kanye has "actively [been] looking to improve that he can only do so as president," Chano outlined a few of them—reparations, prison abolition, universal basic housing, education reform, and universal basic income. "Just saying we been doing this thing the same way for a long time. Can a blck man get a chance," he said.

He eventually acknowledged the "improbability" of Ye winning as president and expressed what he hopes from whoever gets elected. "Whoever you vote for I hope they abolish the prison system as we know it, honor black reparations and all treaties with Indigenous folk and lastly end homelessness. Whomever that may be God bless em."
