Kanye West has unveiled the video for Jesus Is King fan favorite "Follow God." The stark visual for the brief track, which is built around a sample of Whole Truth's 1969 song "Can You Lose by Following God," sees Ye enjoying the wilderness with his father. The two are seen in jumpsuits as they drive around one of Yeezy's ranches in Wyoming.

Upon sharing the video, Kanye posted a statement on Twitter about how the video came to be, which is also featured at the very end of the visual.

"My dad came to visit me at one of our ranches in Cody, Wyoming," he said. "He talked about his love for fishing, and how he would like to come here in the summers. It took me 42 years to realize that my dad was my best friend. He asked me, 'How many acres is this?' I told him 4000. He replied with these three words: 'A black man?'"

Recently, Kanye reiterated that he's not joking when he talks about running for president. "When I run for president in 2024," he said, to laughter from an audience. "What y'all laughing at? When I run for president in 2024, we would create so many jobs that I'm not going to run, I'm going to walk. What I'm saying is, when y'all read headlines—'Kanye's crazy,' this and that—one in three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also 'cause they can't say nothing, they got no opinion, they're so scared!"
