Ben Shepard, 29, is a Chicago artist and University of Chicago graduate, who fervently believes that Kanye West should run for mayor of Chicago.

Shepard is so convinced that “Kanye West would certainly win” if the rapper ran for mayor in 2015 that he’s endorsing Mr. West via his Kanye 4 Mayor campaign.
