It seems like the Kanye West Presidential run is still on.
On Sunday afternoon, Kanye held a campaign rally in front of a small crowd in South Carolina to relay his stance on several issues for the upcoming election.
Things quickly went awry when the Chicago based rapper took a bizarre stance against political abolitionist Harriet Tubman that stunned the crowd in attendance.
