The 43-year-old producer and fashion designer threw in the towel after scooping at least 60,000 votes in the 12 states he appeared on the ballot.

Announcing his intentions to run for 2024 presidential elections, Kanye who ran as an independent candidate uploaded a photo of himself next to an electoral map with the caption:  “welp Kanye 2024”.

West announced his intentions to compete in the 2020 election lat in July. He said, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future … I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION.”

 However, after voting for himself on Tuesday, he tweeted: “God is so good. Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it’s for someone I truly trust … me.”

West got a total of 60,569 votes from just 12 out of the 50 states in the country, excluding battlegrounds like Florida, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

He found the most success in Tennessee, winning 10,216 votes, about 0.3% of the state’s total, according to the AP tally.
