"When people say it's crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y'all understand exactly what it is," he said. "It will be on the license plate," People magazine quoted him.

That's when West shifted the conversation to his plan to run for president.

"When I run for president in 2024," West said, to laughter from the audience. "What y'all laughing at?"

West also told that if he was elected president, he would "create so many jobs."

"I'm not going to run, I'm going to walk," he said.

The conversation later turned from politics to innovations that West is making as a designer.
