On the Sunday edition of "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson spoke about a recent conversation he had with entertainer Kanye West.

In an interview in Vanity Fair published last week, West expressed edmiration for Dr. Carson, saying “As soon as I heard [Ben] Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like this is the most brilliant guy.”  The two men eventually spoke and Dr. Carson summed up the conversation this way:

“I did have an opportunity to talk with him. I was extremely impressed with his business acumen. He knows a lot about business. I talked to him about the possibility of maybe himself and some of the other people in the pop culture doing some music that might be uplifting that might give young women a sense of their value and young men a sense of responsibility. I think it could be a tremendous thing in our society."
