Imagine you're secretly on the phone, listening to a first-time conversation between Kanye West and Ben Carson. What do you think they would talk about?

Well, the most recent issue of Time lets us in on the information.



Here's a portion of the interview:

"Did you see Kanye West called you brilliant? He said he tried to call you – did you guys ever speak?

We did. We talked about some business principles. I was very impressed with his level of knowledge about business. And we talked about the hip hop culture and some of the messages that were sent, and how maybe it might be possible for him and some of the others to start thinking about ways to help young women in particular realize their self worth so they’re not giving themselves away to the first guy that comes along and then getting pregnant and their education stops and their kid lives in poverty. Just talked about things like that. He actually sang a song, a rap song, on the phone."

What we think: It's encouraging to see a candidate use his favor with pop culture influencers for good! We need more positive messages coming into our youth...they're getting a pretty poor message currently!

What do you think? Do you think Carson asked West a wise request? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments! We love to hear from you!
