Kanye West’s visit to Trump Tower today was quick and cordial, with both the recording artist and President-elect Donald Trump characterizing it as a pleasant catch-up between friends.
Kanye didn’t say much as reporters caught up with him at what’s essentially become the pre-White House North, but later revealed why he went:
Kanye recently told an audience that did not vote in the recent presidential election but would have voted for Trump if he had.
Kanye also recently canceled the remaining 21 dates of his Saint Pablo Tour, which was to include a Dec. 8 show at Philips Arena. He played a sold-out show at Philips in September and then added an encore date in October.
Trump hasn’t yet tweeted about Tuesday’s brief encounter with Kanye.
