However, it's not West's first time claiming he's running for president, also doing so in 2015.

Given he's a vocal supporter of current US president Donald Trump, West's decision has been widely dismissed as a publicity stunt for his new album.

The US election takes place on November 3, with Mr Trump set to face off against presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
