Kanye West, Recording Academy President, Neil Portnow and President Trump will today (Thursday) sit together in a meeting, which will include signing new legislation that could potentially put more money in Kanye’s pocket.

Kanye was already scheduled to be at the White House for a separate lunch meeting with Trump, where they’ll reportedly talk gang violence in Chicago, prison reform and manufacturing jobs.
