Former Chicago Bulls player and close friend of Kim Jong Un, Dennis Rodman, wants to take Kanye West with him to North Korea on his next visit.
The invitation came after West posted a shoutout to Rodman on Twitter.
“Thank [sic] to one of my biggest inspirations,” West tweeted with a photo of a signed Rodman jersey. “[A]lways breaking barriers with independent thought.”

Rodman responded with a video posted on Twitter first thanking West and then inviting him on a trek “about world peace and leaders of love.”
“You’re one, I’m one. Let’s get together and do this right.”
Then, in an interview with US Weekly Rodman revealed where he would like the trek to be: North Korea.
“[H]opefully one day we’ll get together and collaborate on certain things,” Rodman said. “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.”
Rodman added that West should make a song about his experience if he decides to go.
Rodman is a frequent visitor to North Korea and has a good relationship with the country’s dictator. The "bromance" started in 2014 after Rodman participated in a basketball game for Kim’s birthday.
Rodman had a very emotional appearance on CNN during President Trump’s summit with Kim, a meetup he felt partially responsible for facilitating.
Kanye has yet to respond publicly to Rodman’s invitation. He did however, mention North Korea in a song on his new album "Ye" last month.
“We could be in North Korea, I could smoke with Wiz Khalifa,” Kanye rapped in the song "Yikes."
