Retired NBA basketball star Dennis Rodman has said he would like to introduce rapper Kanye West to Kim Jong Un so he can write a song about North Korea.
Rodman, 57, is a long-time friend of the North Korean leader, and one of the few Westerners to have met the North Korean dictator and regularly visited the secretive, authoritarian state.
In an interview with US Weekly, published on Wednesday, Rodman said:
“I think that he (Kim) respects me as far as understanding my views. And Kanye, he’s doing amazing work around the world so I respect him, too.
“So hopefully one day we’ll get together and collaborate on certain things. Guess what, I’ll take Kanye West to North Korea with me.
“Matter of fact, I’m going to invite him next time I go to North Korea. If the door’s open in September, I will invite Kanye West with me to go to North Korea with me.
“If he wants to make an album about that he’ll be there for like six to seven days, and he’ll see what’s going on. Now, go make a song about this. So here you go.”
Last week, singer and songwriter West described the former Chicago Bulls player as one of his “biggest inspirations” after receiving a signed vest from him.
