Kanye West revealed that he is "definitely voting" this year and reaffirmed his support for President Donald Trump.

West admitted that he's never voted before, but he will certainly cast his first ballot in the 2020 presidential election. He also added that fear of criticism won't affect him or his vote.

"I'm definitely voting this time. And we know who I'm voting on," West said in new GQ cover story.

"And I'm not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over. Because guess what: I'm still here! Jesus Is King was No. 1! I was told my career would end if I wasn't with her. What kind of campaign is that, anyway? That's like if Obama's campaign was 'I'm with black.' What's the point of being a celebrity if you can't have an opinion? Everybody make their own opinion! You know?"

He added, "Both my parents were freedom fighters, and they used to drink from fountains they were told they couldn't drink from, and they used to sit in restaurants where they were told they couldn't eat from. They didn't fight for me to be told by white people which white person I can vote on."
