Inching ever closer to a Cabinet position with each passing day, Billboard now reports that Kanye West will attend the signing ceremony for the new Music Modernization Act while swinging by the White House Thursday.

Trump said West is a friend and a "different kind of a guy" whose big following in the African-American community helped boost his approval ratings.

The meeting that will take place at the White House this week between Trump and Ye is said to concern topics of social issues like prison reform, employment in the manufacturing industry and gang violence.

The two were to sit down for a roasted chicken lunch in the private dining room off the Oval Office, along with Hall of Fame NFL running back Jim Brown, as well as Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Trump recently tweeted praise for West, who closed a "Saturday Night Live" show wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and delivering an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled. The rapper visited with the then-president-elect at Trump Tower a month before Trump's inauguration.

West ended a September 29 performance of "Saturday Night Live" by delivering an unaired pro-Trump speech that drew catcalls from the audience. "But I don't want to hear Joey Chestnut's opinions about things that aren't hot dog-related".
