Kanye has conceded.

The hip-hop star's sputtering race for the presidency never truly got off the starting blocks, and he's finally admitted defeat.

In a tweet posted late Tuesday, Kanye West called time and turned his attention to the next election.

Earlier, the rapper Kanye West exercised his democratic rights. In a video shared online, he cast a vote in Wyoming, where he penned his own name on a 2020 election ballot. "God is so good," West, face mask on and an "I Voted" sticker adorning his blue sweatshirt, tweeted on Election Day. "Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it's for someone I truly trust … me."

The 43-year-old artist appeared on pre-printed ballots in just 12 states: Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and Vermont.

By Wednesday morning, the presidential election remained in the balance with neither President Trump or Democratic challenger Joe Biden declared the winner.
