Kanye West will perform at the Democratic National Committee Fundraiser scheduled for October 11 at San Francisco's Warfield. According to NBC, tickets for the event start at $10,000.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Ye discussed his announcement that he'd run for president in 2020.

"When I run for president, I'd prefer not to run against someone," he began.

"I would be like 'I want to work with you.' As soon as I heard [Ben] Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like this is the most brilliant guy. And I think all the people running right now have something that each of the others needs. But the idea of this separation and this gladiator battle takes away from the main focus that the world needs help and the world needs all the people in a position of power or influence to come together."

West is expected to play music from his upcoming album Swish at the fundraiser.
