The Life of Kanye West is now a course of study for Washington University students

A new course at Washington University in St. Louis, U.S. will see students examine the world and life of superstar rapper, Kanye West.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 75 third-year students have registered for “Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics”.

Jeffrey McCune, professor, says the course which began this week will focus on the rapper, producer and fashion designer.

He noted that it will offer a way for students to connect issues of politics, race, gender, sexuality and culture.

It’s not the first college course about West. Georgia State University offered one in 2015, and a 2014 course at the University of Missouri focused on West and Jay Z.

“Kanye West As a hip-hop artist Kanye West has had unprecedented impact on the sonic force of music, fashion, politics, and videography. Coupling his controversial moments, with his corpus of musical texts with special focus on sonic production, this course illuminates Mr. West as a case study for interrogating the interplay between fame, gender, sexuality, and race.

“Mostly, we explore how racialized ways of doing iconography, complex ways of seeing, creates a distorted or reductive frame through which we see the black and famous. Nonetheless, the course oscillates with entertaining these nuances, while being entertained by the decade-long catalogue of music and visual imagery.

“Together, we extract the ‘Politics of Mr. West’ in his music and life, while also illuminating the importance of a politics of genius-making in the larger arc of black pop culture tradition,” said the course description.

Although 75 undergraduates have already registered, there’s still a waiting list of students to get in.

NBC: Love him or hate him, Kanye West had a very memorable 2016.

Kanye West began 2016 floating a run for the White House in 2020. He ended the year in another dramatic flourish — strutting into Trump Tower as perhaps the most unlikely ally of the president-elect.

And through all the antics, the year for Yeezy was at times as beautiful, dark and twisted a fantasy as ever.

That’s because the “Famous” rapper managed to remain remarkably relevant, if not for his music or his fashion line, than for a string of public and erratic outbursts that propelled him into the national conversation in unprecedented ways.

Next year, West turns 40, but don’t expect anything to change. The controversial rapper remains poised to keep people guessing and just as engaged as they were in 2016.

A Year Defined by Politics

West, who never said which political party, if any, he’d be affiliated with should he ever run for president, projected the utmost confidence that he is up to the task despite never having held public office.

A HuffPost/YouGov poll from last year suggested that only 6 percent of Americans would even consider voting for West.

Although West donated to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign and appeared to take shots at Trump, he retroactively endorsed the president-elect during an erratic concert in Sacramento, California, in November. He also criticized frequent collaborator Jay Z, Beyoncé and President Barack Obama — then stormed off the stage after declaring, “I’m on my Trump sh*t tonight.”

Is Trump’s meeting with Kanye West important or a distraction?2:26

West went on to have an unexpected face-to-face meeting with Trump at Trump Tower earlier this month to discuss “bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums and violence in Chicago.” He left with a handshake and a signed copy of Trump’s TIME Person of the Year cover.

Trump has insisted that he and West are “great friends.”

“Kanye West hugging President-elect Trump is not how most of us expected 2016 to end,” said Zack O’Malley Greenburg, a Forbes entertainment writer and author of the Jay Z biography “Empire State of Mind.”

“Yeah, I think it’ll lose him some fans, but will it kill his career? I don’t think so. Kanye has made a brand out of making people uncomfortable, for better or worse.”

Meanwhile, West walked away from their conversation with an apparently different perspective on his political future, simply tweeting: “#2024.”

A Year Defined by Scandals

The Chicago rapper’s embrace of Trump, who has been dogged by criticism for racially charged and anti-Muslim rhetoric during the 2016 campaign, amused and alienated many of his fans and peers in the music business.

But it was just one of several controversial episodes from 2016.

“I think this was supposed to be the year that Kanye got his affairs in order. But what kind of ended up happening was something very different,” Greenburg said. In the end, 2016 ended up being a year of missed opportunities for him.”

In February alone, Kanye said that embattled comedian Bill Cosby was innocent of the numerous allegations of sexual assault lodged against him (Cosby has also denied the charges), and he asked Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to help him pay off a purported $53 million debt.

In a video leaked from a “Saturday Night Live” rehearsal, the rapper boasted that he was “50 percent” more influential than any other artist living or dead, including Pablo Picasso, drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and filmmaker Stanley Kubrick.

Speaking of Picasso, West named his latest critically acclaimed album, “The Life of Pablo,” after the iconic painter. But that LP’s botched rollout — it was initially supposed to be released exclusively on Jay Z’s music streaming platform Tidal, but was undermined by leaks and eventually found its way onto iTunes — somewhat overshadowed its content.

On that album, West resurrected his years-long feud with singer Taylor Swift, rapping that he made her famous and that, despite being a married father of two, he “might still have sex” with the singer.

West and his reality star wife, Kim Kardashian, would later provide audio of a phone conversation with Swift as proof that she signed off on the lyrics, an assertion the Grammy-winning pop star has called into question.

A Year Defined by Health Concerns

Public feuds aside, there have been legitimate worries from fans about West’s well-being.

His November concert rant in Sacramento preceded an extended hospital stay for exhaustion, according to his representatives. The rest of West’s ongoing “Life of Pablo” tour (21 arena dates) was canceled indefinitely, but that doesn’t mean he will be slowing down.

“Trying to predict what Kanye will do next is kind of a fool’s errand,” Greenburg added. “I think the only thing you can predict is that he is going to be unpredictable.”

In other words, the road to #2024 could be the start of a whole new West — and not just a White House run.

Kanye West visited Donald Trump to discuss ‘change’ and 2024.

Kanye West, rapper/producer, says it’s important to have a direct line of communication with Donald Trump, U.S president-elect.

 

The hip-hop mogul met with the businessman-turned-politician at the Trump Tower, in New York city, on Tuesday.

 

West, who refused to say anything when the duo addressed the press after their meeting, later took to Twitter to explain the reason behind his visit.

 

He said: “I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues. These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculum, and violence in Chicago.

 

“I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change,” he added.

 

The rapper who had earlier signified his intention to run for the American presidency also shared a hashtag, saying “2024”.

What Trump Discussed With Kanye West

Rap superstar Kanye West on Tuesday delivered a surprise even in this most unusual of political years — he met President-elect Donald Trump, marking the artist’s first appearance since a reported mental breakdown.

West, a rare US celebrity to voice support for Donald Trump, showed up in the early morning with an entourage and his own cameraman at Trump Tower and boarded the elevator of the tycoon’s skyscraper home.

An uncharacteristically taciturn West returned to the lobby with the president-elect himself who, pressed on what the two discussed, said: “Life.”

“Just friends, just friends. He’s a good man. Long time. Friends for a long time,” said a visibly upbeat Trump.

West, sporting a fitted black sweatshirt, at first stood sullenly with his arms folded as reporters peppered him with questions — including on whether he would make good on his earlier promise to run for president in 2020, presumably challenging Trump.

“I’m just here to take a picture right now,” West finally said before flashing a smile and a thumbs-up sign.

Notably absent was the rapper’s wife, reality television star Kim Kardashian.

She has kept a low profile since gunmen broke into her Paris hotel room and robbed her of $10 million worth of jewelry — and gossip pages have recently speculated on the state of the couple’s marriage.

Kanye West Having Marriage Troubles, Source Reveals

Kanye West is reportedly living apart from his wife Kim Kardashian and their two children after being released from the hospital, an anonymous source told Us Weekly. He’s supposedly staying at a rental house as he receives outpatient treatment, the insider added.

On Wednesday, West was released from UCLA Medical Center after being admitted for sleep deprivation and exhaustion. He had returned home to Kardashian and their two kids, North and Saint, upon his release — the family even celebrated his homecoming and Saint’s first birthday with a “low-key” party.

Though West is living apart from his family for medical reasons, there is speculation that he and Kim are having marriage troubles stemming from Kardashian’s traumatic Paris robbery, which some cite as a reason for Kanye’s “erratic behaviour.”

“Kanye’s behaviour took a huge toll on their marriage,” a source told Us. “But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs. She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage.”

Audio From Kanye West’s 911 Call Leaks, Listen To What Transpired

Newly-released audio from the 911 welfare check call made by Kanye West’s doctor a couple weeks ago sheds new light on the rapper’s condition before police and paramedics arrived to take him to the hospital.

In a clip obtained by TMZ, Kanye’s doctor, Dr. Michael Farzam, can be heard asking for the paramedics for his patient, adding that, “He’s definitely going to need to be hospitalized. I wouldn’t just do the police by itself.”

Kanye West Is Being Fed In Hospital Bed, Sources Reveal Rapper’s Current State

As previously reported, the “Fade” rapper, 39, was admitted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday, November 21, after he reportedly started behaving “erratically” while at his personal trainer’s home. The health scare came hours after West canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tourfollowing a bizarre 15-minute rant against Beyoncé, Jay Z and Hillary Clinton at a Sacramento concert.

Kim Kardashian is nursing Kanye West back to health. The reality star has been sleeping by her husband’s side and helping to feed him while he’s in the hospital for exhaustion, a source close to the rapper exclusively tells Us Weekly.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s nurturing behavior echoes that of her sister Khloé Kardashian, who stuck by her ex Lamar Odom‘s side as he recovered from a near fatal drug overdose last year. “All the Kardashian women stick by their men,” the source notes.

Kim has shown nothing but support for her hubby of two years, and even spent Thanksgiving in the hospital with him. “Kim wouldn’t leave his side except to see the kids,” the source tells Us, referring to the couple’s children, North, 3, and Saint, 11 months. “She’s been at the hospital all the time. Kim has been keeping a very close watch on him and not letting people disturb him. All kinds of people have called and sent flowers, but she’s being very careful about not letting him get wound up and making sure he rests and recovers.

Kanye West Feels ‘He’s Under Spiritual Attack’

Kanye West was hospitalized for exhaustion on Monday, and a source tells PEOPLE he “feels like he’s under spiritual attack.”

Hours after West, 39, canceled the remaining 21 dates of his Saint Pablo tour, the rapper went to the hospital following the advice of his doctor, a source says.

“He is exhausted and currently dealing with sleep deprivation. He went to the hospital at will under the advise of his physician. He’s fine,” a source previously confirmed to PEOPLE.

In the wake of his wife Kim Kardashian West being held at gunpoint and robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry on Oct. 3, the musician and clothing designer is “in a very reflective place right now.”

“He feels like he’s under spiritual attack, and has been for awhile. It’s not just the big things; it’s smaller, quieter things, internal things. You might think that it’s about Kim’s robbery, and while that didn’t help, that’s not what’s going on here. He’s dealing with a lot more subtle issues,” the source tells PEOPLE.

“His mother died in November, so this time of year always brings him a lot of pain. He keeps that pain internalized, but sometimes will talk about how hard this time of year is for him. He works through the pain every November,” the source adds. West’s mother, Donda, who died in November 2007 at the age of 58.

But although the father of two is physically exhausted from lack of sleep, he is also emotionally and spiritually tired — and is processing things internally.

“He feels like it’s a trying time for his spirit, but that can be a good thing. He isn’t one to run away from these things. He leans in and listens, and comes away a stronger, better man. But it hurts him; his spirit is vexed. But that’s where growth comes from,” the source says.

“Sometimes, darkness creeps in, and Kanye wrestles against it. He talks about that a lot. It’s exhausting, and it takes everything he’s got. He’s just so tired now; he’s very low energy and feels like there’s a grieving in his spirit. It’s very hard to explain, but something has happened recently, where he’s not the ‘Ye that everyone knows.”

Here Is Why Kanye West Was Hospitalized

Kanye West has been taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation.

According to law enforcement sources … cops responded to a call for a welfare check on Kanye around 1:20 PM PT. He was at his trainer Harley Pasternak’s home at the time and was acting “erratically.” A dispatcher characterized the situation as a “psychiatric emergency.” We’re told paramedics also responded to and ended up transporting Kanye to the hospital by ambulance.

We’re told police called L.A. Fire, and by the time paramedics arrived Kanye was calmer … but still resistant to going to the hospital. We’re told everyone — his management and law enforcement — convinced him it was best he go. Law enforcement sources tell us Kanye was handcuffed to a gurney during transport to the hospital … as standard protocol.

Sources connected to Kanye tell us he was getting checked out by one of his doctors for severe sleep deprivation when someone — possibly the physician — decided he needed to be admitted.

The hospitalization comes on the heels of Kanye abruptly cancelling the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour, and launching into a verbal attack on Jay Z and Beyoncé.

Kanye West hospitalized after scrapping US tour.

Rap superstar Kanye West was hospitalised on Monday with a “medical emergency” after cancelling his tour, two days after a rambling onstage tirade against fellow artists Jay-Z and Beyonce.

The “Saint Pablo Tour” was set to run through December 31 but all 21 remaining shows have been cancelled, a spokeswoman for promoter Live Nation told AFP.

Hours later it emerged that West, 39, was being treated at a University of California, Los Angeles clinic, with gossip website TMZ reporting that he was undergoing psychiatric tests after being examined for exhaustion.

Mike Lopez, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department, told AFP officers had responded to an early afternoon “call of a disturbance” at an address in Los Angeles known to be the rapper’s property.

“That disturbance became a medical emergency where the fire department came and treated the individual,” he said, without naming West.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning musician did not immediately make any personal statement and his representatives did not respond to requests for comment.

Celebrity gossip website TMZ quoted an unnamed source saying the rapper was pulling out of the tour because he was exhausted.

“He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line,” the source was quoted as saying.

Since August, West has performed around 40 dates in Canada and the US, rapping above the stage on an innovative “floating” platform.

– ‘Call me, bro’ –

He halted a gig in New York in the middle of his set when he was informed that his wife, reality TV queen Kim Kardashian, had been robbed at gunpoint in a hotel in Paris.

West has not spoken publicly about the incident but TMZ’s source said time spent away from family had added to the rapper’s stress.

He cancelled several dates the following week but made a comeback in his hometown, Chicago, and performed without incident until a show in Oakland on October 22 where he described the Grammys as “rigged.”

The latest cancelation followed a Saturday night show in Sacramento, where West showed up an hour late and performed three songs before berating other artists and defeated White House hopeful Hillary Clinton, and cutting the performance short.

West said he was “hurt” because Beyonce supposedly said she would not perform at a certain show — likely the Grammys — unless she wins video of the year over him.

“I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth, even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career,” West said.

He implored Beyonce’s husband, the rapper Jay-Z, to “call me, bro, you still ain’t called me,” adding that he was hurt that Jay-Z had failed to visit his family after the robbery.

– ‘Crazy talk’ –

“Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man,” he added, appearing to suggest that his friend employed hitmen.

He also criticized Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg for failing to give him $53m to get out of debt.

The rapper told an audience on Thursday that he did not vote but would have chosen Republican Donald Trump, sparking angry fans to boo the star and throw items on stage.

West — who has talked about plans to run for president in 2020 — earned $17.5 million this year, according to Forbes magazine, which placed him 11th in the list of hip hop’s highest-paid superstars.

The magazine predicted West would lose around $10 million from the cancellation.

There was some support for the star on Twitter as well as an angry backlash, with fans accusing him of “crazy talk” and having “lost the plot.”

West himself raps about going off his medications on his latest album. On the song “Feedback,” he raps, “I been outta my mind a long time,” and “Name one genius that ain’t crazy.”

Another tune “FML” includes West’s rap: “You ain’t never seen nothing crazier than / this n—a when he off his Lexapro.” It is a psychiatric drug used to treat anxiety and depression.

Watch video of Kanye West furiously blasting Beyonce, Jay Z on stage.

Kanye West, American rapper has unleashed a flurry of suppressed resentment towards his former collaborator, Jay Z, and Beyonce, his wife.

 

West accused Beyonce of refusing to perform at the MTV VMAs if she didn’t win the ‘Best Video’ award, a category he was always nominated in.

 

The husband of reality TV star Kim Kardashian also urged Jay Z to give him a call and speak to him “like a man”.

 

The incident played out during the Sacramento, California leg of his U.S. tour on Saturday night.

 

He said: “Beyonce, I was hurt because I heard you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won video of the year over me and over Hotline Bling. In my opinion – now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are – just to win.

 

“I’ve been sent here to give ya’ll my truth, even at the risk of my own life. At the risk of my own success. I’ll give ya’ll the truth. Jay-Z call me bro, you still ain’t called me … Jay Z, I know you got killas. Please don’t send them at my head. Talk to me like a man.”

KANYE WEST AND ADIDAS TO LAUNCH YEEZY RETAIL STORE!

French police claim to have FACES of Kim Kardashian jewellery thieves.

French police have found CCTV footage which shows the faces of the thieves who robbed Kim Kardashian thanks to a lucky break, it has been reported Tuesday night.

Kim, 35, was ambushed in her Paris apartment in the early hours of Monday.

She was thrown bound and gagged into a bathtub by masked gunmen dressed as police officers .

The five, who fled on hired bikes, escaped with her engagement ring and other jewellery worth £8.5million.

It had been believed that despite having such a high-profile guest, there was only one security camera covering the prestigious £8,000-a-week Hotel Pourtales.

And the Mirror has been told it was facing the wrong way, capturing none of the dramatic robbery.

But it has sensationally been claimed Tuesday night that the thieves WERE captured by another CCTV camera covering a nearby nail salon during the getaway.

In a ‘million-to-one’ scenario, the gang can be seen in the reflection of a mirror as they walked through a small shopping precinct adjacent to the Kardashian apartment on Rue Tronchet, it is claimed.

They then went through an unlocked office door and into a car park where they jumped onto motorbikes, according to The Sun.

It would represent a major breakthrough for French police who are under intense pressure to solve the case.

A local shopkeeper confirmed that police have been asking for CCTV.

One told the Mirror: “We have had calls from police asking for any information and video footage overlooking the area.

“Everyone is doing what they can to help. We are all shocked.”

Kim is believed to have been tailed for three days before the robbery by two men with French accents, posing as a policeman and photographer.

Kim’s personal bodyguard, Pascal Duvier has vowed to find those responsible.

He warned: “The events in Paris was one of the most sickening things I have seen or heard.

“We have tips and leads and we will find you – that I promise you. You messed with the wrong one.”

Kim’s two children – North, three, and 10-month-old Saint – were not with her at the time of the robbery.

As Kanye stepped up protection around his family, a source insisted: “Kanye’s never been lax about security, he takes the safety of his wife very seriously.

“The whole family are under round-the-clock protection. He even lent Kim’s mum Kris his own personal security when she sacked hers after an intruder broke into her house while Kim was there.

“A few years ago, he started paying lookalikes of the couple and their son North on a retainer, in case they needed to disguise their location. Now he wants them on the payroll.”

Kanye interrupted a New York gig on Sunday night after learning of the raid, as Kim flew by private jet to be with him.

He has since postponed two tour dates.

On Monday the pair had 20 hired guards and a police escort to accompany them to their penthouse apartment.

The couple already own a pair of £1million “bullet-proof, bomb-proof” armoured vehicles – and will deploy similar anti-assault technology on a wall round their £20million home in Hidden Hills, California.

Cameras have already been installed in every room, including their closets, and the couple can see the footage from anywhere in the world.

Meanwhile, Kanye is reviewing their social media use to delay posts and prevent locations being traceable in real time, using an agency that has previously advised the US President.

Kim had posted images on Snapchat from the apartment just two hours before the heist – and a video in which she wore her £3.5million, 20 carat engagement ring.

Police had previously warned Kim’s half-sister, Kylie Jenner, about using the social network site – where a vague idea of a user’s location is tagged when using the app’s geofilter settings.

Charles Pellegrini, the ex head of France’s anti-organised crime squad, blasted the lax arrangements, saying: “I’m personally amazed at how her security was handled.”

A spokesperson for the star said she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” during the Paris raid.

Kanye West Brought To Tears As He Sings To Fan Wearing ‘In Loving Memory Of Donda West’ Shirt

Kanye West is a very expressive person, but at times it is looked at as arrogance. Your minds might change after hearing about this Sunday’s #SaintPablo show in Miami, though, because Yeezus had a rather human experience with a fan that caused him to break down during the concert.

Looking down from his floating stage, West spotted a young lady who was rocking a tattoo of a ballerina from his ‘Runaway’ video. She was also wearing an ‘In loving memory of’ shirt which honored his mom and it instantly brought west to tears.

Kanye called her from the stage saying, “The girl in the ‘In loving memory of’ [T-shirt] with the ‘Runaway’ tattoo right here. You literally brought tears to my eyes.” Next, he asked her name and the crowd yelled “Krystal!”

‘Ye finished the song by serenading Krystal as she fanned out from below, wiping tears from her eyes. She told Vanity Fair that she’s ‘on top of the world’ after Sunday’s show. “I’m feeling like Pablo! I’m on top of the world! It’s been such a blessing to know that I touched him because his music has always touched me.”

Kanye West destroyed D’banj’s music career, and it was all for nothing

How do you go from the leading artiste in Africa, to a guy who every loves and rates as a celebrity, but whose music is no longer in demand? How do you tell if a record deal – which at the time signified the greatest aspirational goal of your music career – will become a Trojan Horse?

Let’s not coat it. Kanye West’s GOOD Music ruined D’banj’s career. There, we said it.

2011 was a crucial year for Nigerian music. It was the year when the rulers of pop music made a decision that was to cost them their dominance. D’banj and Don Jazzy, co-owners of Mo’Hits Records had found a way to meet up with Kanye West, where they sold him the Nigerian dream and sound. Kanye did buy it.

“D’Banj travelled to Dubai, at Dubai airport he met Kanye West just like anybody can meet any superstar at the airport.” Don Jazzy said, explaining the root of the end of Mo’Hits.

“He had the courage to go and meet him and introduce himself and that he wants to break into America and that he has done a song with Snoop Dogg and please listen to the song and tell me if it is good. And he understood and he listened to it and he liked it. And he asked us to drop by New York when we were going to LA for the video shoot with Snoop. So when we got to New York, we called them and his manager said we should meet up at Wyclef’s studio and the rest is history.”

The rest simply became history. Mo’Hits became history due to the irreconcilable differences between the business partners. D’banj, ever the opportunist, wanted in on the deal from GOOD Music. Don Jazzy hesitated, and wanted none of it. They argued and split.

D’banj revealed this to Olisa Adibua on his chat show, ‘The Truth: “Maybe Dr Sid? We came back from New York, and we had a meeting with Jazzy. Me and Jazzy. And Jazzy really expressed his discomfort that ‘listen, this place is too expensive. We are spending money, we are going to stay there, things dey happen for Nigeria, we are already bosses here, we don’t need all these…make we just stay here..

“And I’m like ‘we are almost there, like it’s expensive but I know it’s not really guaranteed, because it’s a dog eat dog world out there. And in his own words, ‘you can’t leave certainty for uncertainty,’ which makes sense.

“But I said to him that listen brother this is not uncertainty. For Kanye West to see us is not a joke. He saw us in Dubai, na God. Is it not the same Nigeria that we are doing music that took us there.

“And I asked him that, and he said he didn’t want to go, he didn’t want us to do it again, he said he wasn’t interested. So Jazzy literally said that he wasn’t interested, and I told him, because I had sensed it…before the last concert I had told the lawyers that I felt that it wasn’t…that’s why we had legal papers.

“So they were trying to get him to come around, but I understood totally, which is what I said to you. So when he came back home, he had a meeting and that was in July, and he said he doesn’t want us to do Mo’Hits again. That he doesn’t want us to do Mo’Hits again. And I said to him, ‘Please give me 6 months’.

“So I told him to give me 6 months, that he should please just…for me I was even trying to sell my shares, to convince him again, to sell my shares to someone else, take the money, go abroad and try. To do anything I could, because I had seen that it wasn’t working, and him and Sid had formed this synergy. It was very clear the way…I could see it. He wasn’t very comfortable around me, I didn’t understand what was happening, and me I didn’t…everybody knows that I don’t have time. I was always on the move.

“I wasn’t always on ground to see, and I think that was my mistake – I wasn’t sensitive enough to have noticed. And prior to that, if I felt anything, just as you would do as a boss, you should do whatever needed to be done. So I told him to give me 6 months. I remember December, Iwe had a meeting, and everybody was there, and Don Jazzy also said the same thing which was after 6 months. That was December 2011, and he said, that he had thought about it, and he wasn’t interested. In fact, not just me, that this one wasn’t interested (pointing to others).

“I was heartbroken, I think Kayswitch was with them, it was one voice, and I felt like…what’s happening here? And that’s where I started hearing few things that people just felt that they were not comfortable with me.”

The end of Mo’Hits, signaled the music end for D’banj. He was signed to GOOD Music, and Kanye West gave him his blessings, his chain, a remix of ‘Scapegoat’, and hummed his way into ‘The Morning’. Cosigns by other artistes helped make the charade continue, but the facts remained clear,; D’banj did not release any solo project under good music.

D’banj lost Don Jazzy, lost Mo’Hits Records, and lost his momentum. ‘Oliver Twist’ ( a Don Jazzy production), kept him alive musically, and so did the 2013 album, “D Kings Men”.  But ultimately, the damage was done. He has never recovered.

Ever since his split with Don Jazzy in 2011, there’s been a steady decline of D’banj’s musical powers, even though his celebrity went the other way. Each year brings another D’banj power move and endorsement deal, but the quality of the music takes a hit. 2013’s compilation album “D King’s Men” was a fantastic project which still stands as his best DB Records body of work, but it failed to catch on, with many attributing it to the lack of love from core fans who still blame him for splitting the indomitable Mo’Hits Records.

But subsequent singles have found plenty of marketing yield little fruits, and the dissent from critics and listeners have always been felt. A few bright spots have made his case salvageable; ‘Top of the world’, ‘Feeling the nigga’ and 2016’s ‘Emergency’ have still kept his case for music credibility alive, but he manages to find new ways to come up with less-inspired sounds.

2016 has had his record label undergo severe changes, and almost fallen apart. His producer DeeVee split from the group, so also did his joker, Tonto Dikeh, who is seeking fulfilment from motherhood and other familial concerns. His other signees, 2kriss, have been without buzz nor content.

But he is coming through with two new singles for an album. And you begin to wonder if he still has enough juice left in the tank to push through another album release. This year marks his 11 year in the music industry. Three studio albums, two compilation albums, and an EP is a good run for the Nigerian music industry, but he intends to change that number with another project.

The singer’s album will be purportedly be dropping before the end of the year, and plans are already underway to commence the rollout of singles, and other promotional materials. With a bashed musical credibility, and a fanbase that pretty much has very little contemporary reason to follow the new music, only time and the content of his album will be determinants on if there’s enough left in D’banj for another D’banj album.

Without GOOD Music, chances are that the story would have been different. Maybe the split with Don Jazzy would have stilled happened, but for other reasons. GOOD Music hastened it, and took away from D’banj, more than it offered.

Kanye West’s Yeezy S4 Launch Soiled As Models Fall On Runway (WATCH)

Kanye West left onlookers unimpressed with the launch of his Yeezy season four collection. The Fade rapper debuted his latest clothing collection on Roosevelt Island, New York on 7 September but the New York Fashion Week show descended into chaos before it even began.

The show, which took place in the gardens of an abandoned hospital, had been due to start at 3pm but guests were reportedly kept waiting for about two hours.

Guests, models and others involved in the launch had been told to meet at 1.30pm to take buses to the location but the lengthy delay meant they were waiting for a total of four hours. It is said that those on the coaches suffered boredom with the lack of entertainment and even food or water.

With the focus firmly on West’s new pieces, it probably wasn’t the best idea to design shoes which the models couldn’t walk in. Footage taken by guests shows various models stumbling, wobbling, falling over and ultimately throwing the heels off their feet as they struggled to strut down the catwalk. On one model, it looked as though the heels on a pair of thigh-high black boots had bent and collapsed while other muses seemed to walk extremely slow for fear of suffering the same fate.

Matters were only made worse by the scorching heat. Models were seen sitting at times to cool themselves down in the delay while there were several reports of the runway queens fainting. One guest tweeted alongside a photo: “A model needed water. The poor models. This is cruelty,” while another post read: “Model passed out in the heat is given water by man in the audience but no one on the #YeezySeason4 team helps.”

Kanye West Promises New Collaboration Album With Drake

Kanye West has kept busy this year by dropping his The Life Of Pablo album, as well as embarking on his Saint Pablo Tour, but it sounds like he’s got even more in store for 2016. Taking to the stage at OVO Fest Monday night, Kanye announced that he and Drake are working on a joint album.

“Is y’all ready for this album?” Kanye shouted out to the crowd at OVO Fest. “I wasn’t talking about Pablo. I wasn’t talking about VIEWS. I wanna ask y’all right now: Are y’all ready for this album?” He clarified, pointing at Drake before pointing back to himself.

Kanye West and Drake are no strangers to the joint-project game. Kanye West and Jay Z joined forces for their ground-breaking album Watch The Throne in 2011. Drake also teamed up with Future for their joint mixtape What A Time To Be Alive last year, which pretty much topped every year-end list. We’ve seen what Drake and Kanye can do on solo projects, let’s see if they can create the same magic on a collaborative album. We’ll keep you posted as more details emerge….

Kanye West & North Fall Asleep In The Middle Of A Shop

Being the self-proclaimed “greatest living rockstar on the planet” can be tiring work, which Kim Kardashian has proven by sharing a photo of her husband, Kanye West, and their two-year-old daughter North passed out in the middle of a shop.

The mother-of-two revealed that the family were out baby shopping with their best mates John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, who are expecting their first child later this year, and it all got a little bit too much for her hubby and daughter.

Posting the image on Instagram, Kim captioned the adorable snap with: “So today we went baby shopping with @johnlegend & @chrissyteigen Kanye & North were a little too quiet.

“We found them passed out in the middle of the store #TheRealLifeOfPablo”.

Kanye West’s Fans Begin Crowd Fund To Get Him Out Of Debt, See How Much They Have Raised So Far

During one of his many recent Twitter sprees, Kanye West claimed that he’s currently in debt for $53 million, and asked Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion in his ideas. Though Mark hasn’t yet expressed interest in this plan, Kanye’s fans are now attempting to come to the rescue via crowdfunding.

Earlier this week, Jeremy Piatt set up a GoFundMe page called “Get Kanye Out of Debt,” with the goal of his fans becoming Kanye’s own modern-day Medici family. “We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today,” Jeremy writes. “Sure he is personally rich and  can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can’t be realized.”

Thus far only 388 people have donated, for a grand total of $3,793, so it might be a while before Kanye gets his full $53 million.

Kanye West Explains Why He’s Asking for Money

After what felt like an eternity away from Twitter — approximately 13 hours — Kanye West made a return to the social media platform to throw some light on his finances.

Late last night, he had made a perplexing reference to “53 million dollars in personal debt” before asking Mark Zuckerberg for $1 billion, which had everyone wondering what was actually going on with Kanye, who, it’s safe to say, appears very rich, and at the very least, is married to someone also very rich.

Kanye kicked off his latest Twitter monologue with an observation about how the wealthy behave. “I just feel rich people are always too cool to ask for help trying to impress each other at dinner parties,” he wrote.

‘You May Be Wearing Dresses, But You’re A Man’– Kanye Slam Wendy Williams In New Track

Kanye West is at it, again. The rapper has recorded a remixed version of Aerosmith’s, Dude (Looks Like a Lady), as a cruel jibe at Wendy in an LA studio last weekend. According to Daily Mail, the rapper is pissed off that the Talk Show host has repeatedly talked on air about him being secretly gay and has called his marriage to Kim Kardashian ‘one of convenience.’

On the track, Kanye made references to untrue rumors that Wendy was born a man and had a sex change which initially circulated in the 1990s during her notorious radio career in New York. Source says Kanye’s lyrics went:

‘You obsessed with me/Keep testing me/You may be wearing dresses, but you a man like me/Got bigger hands than me/Let me see, your birther please/A dude in a wig that really wanna be me!’

‘Kanye played the record for some of the artists he has been collaborating with in the studio and everyone was going crazy.

‘It was really on the level of Nas’s “Ether” diss record to Jay-Z.’

But Kim has persuaded her rap-star husband not to release the song dissing the chat show host, fearful of the backlash from the trans community, a source exclusively revealed to Daily Mail Online

However when Kim, 35, heard about Kanye’s song, she told him to shelve it – despite also wanting Wendy to stop attacking her family.

The reality star told Kanye the song could make him seem transphobic and she was fearful of the fallout following her step-father Bruce Jenner’s transition into Caitlyn Jenner.

The insider told Daily Mail Online: ‘Kim was concerned that Caitlyn would be offended by the record – it would appear as though Kanye was in some way attacking that movement instead of just targeting Wendy.

‘She didn’t want Kanye to be labelled trans-phobic.’

Wiz Khalifa Has Accepted Kanye West’s Apology

The biggest feud of 2016 thus far is officially over. In addition to Kanye West’s Twitter announcement that he and Wiz Khalifa made up comes confirmation from Wiz that the pair are no longer at odds. In an interview with NYC radio station Power 105.1, Wiz said that he was surprised by Kanye’s outburst but says “everything’s cool” now. “We spoke; it’s all good,” Wiz said. “I accept his apology.” He also corroborated the Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian selfie and confirmed that “they’re all good too.”

Some people have speculated that this entire saga was a ploy to drive album sales (Wiz’s album Khalifa debuts this Friday while Kanye’s comes out Feb. 11), and though Wiz didn’t address any conspiracy theories, he did admit that he thinks it helps. “It’s entertaining,” he said. He also talked about the Academy Awards snubbing his Furious 7 song “See You Again” and admitted he thought it would be nominated, but feels he knows why it wasn’t. “I’m still black,” he said. “They’re not gonna let us forget that.”

This Photo Might Be Kanye West’s Worst Nightmare (SEE PHOTO)

This life is a box full of surprises. Aren’t they supposed to be enemies? That is Amber Rose and Kim K. Then all of a sudden they are posing together.

What’s happening here? We are equally startled at this and want some explanation. More startling is the fact that they both posted the photo almost at the same time with caption, “Tea anyone?” and “Swingers”. But be rest assured, we will find out what’s going down. Or maybe Kim is on some “finger” tutorial lessons from Amber.

Part 2: When Amber Rose Stepped Into The Feud Of The Exes

Rose replied an hour later.

“Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur a–hole anymore? she tweeted. #FingersInTheBootyA–Bitch.”

“6th don’t ever come out the side of your neck at me,” Kanye said. “7th I am your OG and I will be respected as such. 8th I made it so we could wear tight jeans. 9th me and Cudi created this s–t. 10th don’t you ever in your f–king life speak sideways about a n—a that’s fighting for us I do this for all of us. 11th I showed you respect as a man when I met you.”

Kanye then mentioned Wiz and Rose’s son again.

“12th You wouldn’t have a child if it wasn’t for me,” he tweeted. “13th You own waves???? I own your child!!!!”

“14th N—a it’s called creativity #youshouldtryitsomeday,” Kanye said. “15th N—a I tried to call you and you changed your number.””16th don’t even hint at mentioning me my family or my wife,” tweeted Kanye, who shares 2-year-old daughter North West and 1-month-old son Saint West with Kim. “I am your OG.”He did, however, also pay Wiz some compliments.”17th I think you dress cool I wish I was skinny and tall,” Kanye tweeted….some backhanded compliments.”Maybe I couldn’t be skinny and tall but I’ll settle for being the greatest artist of all time as a consolation,” Kanye said.

“Don’t ever ever ever come out the side of your mutherf–king neck bro or bruh or however you say it Mr. Waves,” he added. “I’m YE and I ain’t gotta say it the right way I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye. Thank you for the extra promotion #WAVES available February 11th.”

Kanye paused for several minutes, during which Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter to express support for his album.

Kanye then continued his tirade, but took on a more positive tone.
“What’s sad is I love Wiz and I love all all my brothers and all people,” he tweeted. “I love the world bottom line and all I want is peace and positive energy.””This album is actually a Gospel album,” he added. “Good energy positive energy.”Kanye then deleted his mean tweets.”Ima take these down cause it’s all about positive energy blessings blessings positive energy blessings,” he wrote. “The Devil can’t stop us.”

“Lol @kanyewest Now u wanna delete ur tweets cuz Muva has arrived? #TwitterFingers #UrGettingBodiedByAStripperN—a,” Rose responded.

Kanye did not reply to her. He did, however, claim that “Wiz lost 2 million followers” since he began tweeting at him.

“I’m happy that I now know that KK means weed… please excuse the confusion … now back to #WAVES,” he said.

Meanwhile, a fan thanked Wiz for “pissing @kanyewest off,” adding, “He is hilarious when he’s pissed!”

Kanye West Vs Wiz Khalifa: Read What Really Happened

Things got a little nasty, as well as personal, between Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa on Twitter recently.

Kanye changed the title of his upcoming album from SWISH to WAVES, which did not sit well with Wiz. The two exchanged tweets about it, after which Kanye unleashed an epic rant that mentioned mutual ex Amber Rose, and her and Wiz’s son.

“Please don’t take the wave,” Wiz tweeted Tuesday. “Max B is the wavy one. He created the wave. There is no wave without him.”

Wiz is referring to Harlem-based rapper Max B, who is nicknamed The Wavy One.

“He’s the reason I sing on all my songs,” Wiz said. “That’s the wave. If theres nothing wit that sound ITS NOT WAVY.”

Kanye said on Twitter in response, “All respect to Andre Harrel and Max B #Waves.”

And Wiz didn’t buy it.

“Yea aight,” he said.

Then a 5 a.m. tweet from Wiz got Kanye riled up.

“Like, oh that’s Ye and I can put his wife’s initials on my twitter @Wizkhalifa,” Kanye tweeted Wednesday morning.”KK is weed fool,” Wiz replied. “Reason’s why your not wavy. Go bacc to Swish.”Then Kanye unleashed the fury.”Bro first of all you stole your whole s–t from Cudi,” he said. Second, your first single was corny as f–k and most there after.”

He even used a “Kimoji,” part of wife Kim Kardashian’s set of personalized emojis, to drive his point home.

“You have distracted from my creative process,” Kanye tweeted.”I been smashed the idea of that album even existing,” Wiz said a minute later. “I got joints to roll @kanyewest.””I went to look at your twitter and you were wearing cool pants. I screen grabbed those pants and sent it to my style team #Wizwearscoolpants,” Kanye continued.

He posted 14 more bullet points within minutes:

“3rd no one I know has ever listened to one of your albums all the way through,” he said.

Kanye then mentioned Rose, a former stripper-turned-glamour model, and her and Wiz’s 2-year-old son Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz.

“4th you let a stripper trap you,” Kanye tweeted. “5th I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years.”

5th I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years

Rose replied an hour later.

“Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur a–hole anymore? she tweeted. #FingersInTheBootyA–Bitch.”

“6th don’t ever come out the side of your neck at me,” Kanye said. “7th I am your OG and I will be respected as such. 8th I made it so we could wear tight jeans. 9th me and Cudi created this s–t. 10th don’t you ever in your f–king life speak sideways about a n—a that’s fighting for us I do this for all of us. 11th I showed you respect as a man when I met you.”

Kanye West Changes The Name Of His New Album Again

Kanye West has once again changed the title of his forthcoming album.

Originally, in March 2015, it was supposed to be called So Help Me God, before he changed it to Swish two months later. Now, the rapper’s decided to call it Waves.

See How Many Christmas Boxes Kanye West Gave Kim Kardashian

It looks like Kim Kardashian’s husband Kanye West really pulled out all the stops for Christmas, at least in the gift giving department.  In a recent livestream, Kim revealed just how bountiful her Christmas was, thanks to her generous hubby.

In a recap of the family’s livestream videos posted to her website, a sign that reads “To Kim, Love Kanye” is seen perched near boxes and boxes neatly wrapped in dark paper and ribbon.

“We’ve got ‘To Kim from Kanye…150 gifts and counting,” remarks the person shooting the video as the camera pans over all the presents. US Weekly reports the gifts Kanye got his wife included a Prada jumpsuit and a Louis Vuitton dress among many others. “He sent his assistant to Italy and shopped via Skype,” Kim told fans. When mom Kris Jenner calls her “spoiled,” Kim has the perfect response.

Kim Kardashian Could Suffer Deadly Placenta Accreta With 3rd Pregnancy — Doctor Says

Kim Kardashian is extremely lucky that she did not suffer the same ‘placenta accreta’ issue with her second pregnancy as her first, but a doctor tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that a third pregnancy could be deadly. Here’s why.

Kim Kardashian’s second pregnancy may have been better than the first, but that doesn’t mean that she’s in the clear to try for a third, a doctor tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. The placenta accreta disorder that tainted her first birth could actually kill her if she tries again. We’ll tell you why, here.

 

We’re so happy for Kim that she got to have two beautiful, healthy babies despite her major pregnancy complications, but Dr. Bruce Lee, M.D., a Beverly Hills O.B.G.Y.N. explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com why she shouldn’t try it again. “Kim is very fortunate that she did not suffer from placenta accreta with the birth of her second child Saint West.”

“The majority of women who experience placenta accreta with their first pregnancy, are at high riskfor developing the life-threating condition with subsequent births. In fact, the risk of getting placenta accreta increases with every pregnancy,” continued Dr. Lee. “Just because Kim didn’t have placenta accreta with her second pregnancy, doesn’t mean she wouldn’t get it with her third pregnancy. The possibility is quite high.”

So what exactly is “placenta accreta”? You probably remember that during Kim’s first pregnancy, her placenta got attached to the inside of her body, and a doctor had to scrape it off with his fingernails. Yuck. But it’s also super dangerous. So why is this such a threat? “If Kim were pregnant with her third child and went into early labor with placenta accreta there could be massive bleeding,” Dr. Lee told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Massive bleeding could reduce blood flow and oxygen to the baby, thus harming the baby.”

On top of that, it could hurt Kim. “Kim could suffer from severe vaginal bleeding. The average blood lose is between 3,000-5,000 milliliters. A blood transfusion would be required in 90% of these cases and there is 7% mortality rate for mothers,” said Dr. Lee. 

So, what would Dr. Lee tell Kim if she were his patient? “If I were Kim’s doctor, I would advise her not to take the risk,” he told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She already has two healthy children. She got away with not getting placenta accreta with her second pregnancy, she shouldn’t tempt fate again.” Poor Kimmy! Luckily, it sounds like she’s currently satisfied with the size of her family. Perhaps if she changes her mind, she should consider adopting. Stay safe, Kim!

Kanye West Album Release Date: Rapper May Pull A Beyonce And Drop New Album “Swish” As A Surprise

Kanye West is yet to confirm a release date for his new album and it may be part of a master plan. Fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of his seventh album, Swish, but the rapper’s close friend Pusha T has hinted West may be taking a leaf out of Beyonce’s book of success by releasing the LP without warning.

While details about Swish are sparse, Pusha T, who was appointed president of West’s record label G.O.O.D. Music in November 2015, has dropped hints about West’s promotional plans for the album. Pusha T told Entertainment Weekly: “I think the world is psyched for the new Kanye album. [He’s] super meticulous about the messaging around his album. It’s incredible. There won’t be much warning, I’m sure. It’s gonna drop out of the sky.”

Adding fuel to the surprise release claims, West himself said in February 2015 that his upcoming record is unlikely to have an official release date. The All Day rapper is still in the process of working on Swish and has pleaded with the public to give him time and space to finish the record. West told his Twitter followers: “I’m finishing my album and my next collection. No offence to anyone… I’m asking everyone DON’T ASK ME FOR ANYTHING TILL AFTER I’M FINISHED WITH MY ALBUM.”

Kanye West’s sixth album Yeezus received mixed reviews following its release in June 2013Def Jam

Although a tracklist for Swish has not been unveiled, West, 38, has delivered a number of songs since 2014, including Only One, All Day and Fade, while he features on Rihanna’s single FourFiveSeconds alongside Paul McCartney. In September 2015, West stated he would not be rushing Swish in order to present a complete album he is proud of to fans. The rapper explained to Vanity Fair: “I’m not sure. I’m not worried about the years. I’m worried about the life and the body of work that I can put out while I’m breathing… It’s currently called Swish. I’m forgetting even what the last name of it was now.”

West, who became a father again after welcoming son Saint on 5 December 2015, released his sixth studio album Yeezus in June 2013 and it topped the charts worldwide with singles including Bound 2, Black Skinhead and New Slaves.

Drake Helped Me Shed My Ego- Kanye West

Back in March, Kanye West delivered a lecture to the Oxford Guild Society and dropped a few gems. Thankfully, video footage of the speech was finally released. The rapper spoke on many things, from his biggest weaknesses, to his ego, and even about how Drake has helped him along the way. “One of my biggest problems, one of my biggest Achille’s heels has been my ego,” West says. “And if I, Kanye West, the very person, can remove my ego, I think there’s hope for everyone.”

And if you’re wondering who might’ve been a helping hand in Kanye’s new mindset then Drake would be the main man behind it all. “I think that that’s been a progression of mind with the advent of a human being named Drake,” West shares. “You know, this idea of holding onto a No. 1 spot. And then you get this guy that comes and blows out the water, every No. 1 of any band ever. Be it me or Paul McCartney. And at the point, you know, when you’ve lost the idea of holding onto that concept, you can leave the mountaintop finally, and walk down, and readjust, and see what your position on earth can be.”

Mr. West even tapped into a little vulnerability throughout his speech as he revealed that he has now learned his true sense of purpose as an artist. “I’ve had all of these mixed emotions, mixed feelings, based off you know, bigotries, walls, perceptions that I’ve had to deal with,” West expressed. “Ones that drove me to titles like ‘Black Skinhead’ or ‘I Am A God.’ Now I understand that I’m a servant. And with my voice, and with the information and my ability to build relationships with amazing people, speak to amazing people.”

Kanye West Loves Attention- Kim Kardashian

Keeping things in perspective. Kim Kardashian is expecting her second child in December, but of the many qualms the reality star has, one major one is how she’ll juggle time for both her kids and husband Kanye West, she told Ryan Seacrest in an interview.

“My husband needs a lot of attention, each kid needs a lot of attention, I work a lot, [and] I want to be able to give everyone just the same amount of attention,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star told Seacrest during a segment for On Air With Ryan Seacrest.

Kardashian, 35, and West, 38, are expecting their second child together, a son, on Christmas, and the second-time mom revealed that two might just be the magic number.

“I am so over it… I am beyond over it,” she said of being pregnant, with just six weeks left in her pregnancy. “I said this last time. I said I am done. Don’t ever make me go through that again. …How miserable it is, swollen feet and heartburn. It is the worst.”

Obama Gives Kanye West Some Tips For Presidential Run

If you’re going to run for president, Kanye West, you might as well listen to someone who’s been there and done that.

“I do have some advice for him,” President Barack Obama said during a West Coast fundraiser featuring an appearance by the rapper. “Just some stuff that I’ve picked up on the way.”

When West appeared on the MTV Video Music Awards last month, he announced that he would run for president in 2020.

Obama’s Tip No. 1 could have been aimed at reality TV star turned presidential candidate Donald Trump — and maybe a few others in the crowded GOP field.

“First of all, you’ve got to spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they’re on a reality TV show,” Obama said. “So you’ve just to be cool with that.”

Tip No. 2 referenced West’s fifth studio album. “Saying that you have a ‘Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ — that’s what’s known as ‘off-message’ in politics,” Obama said. “You can’t say something like that. There are a lot of people who have lost their congressional seats saying things like that.”

Tip No. 3 hit the Chicago-raised West close to home. “Do you really think that this country is going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be president of the United States?” Obama asked. “That is crazy. That’s cray!”

Obama, aka POTUS, also joked that West has his own nickname for the person in the White House — Peezy (that’s someone who is really, really cool).

West also is thinking about running for speaker of the House, Obama cracked.

“Couldn’t get any stranger,” he said.

Imagine you’re a judge on a music talent show and you’re sitting and waiting for the next contestant – only for a 21-time Grammy winner to appear in front of you, saying he’s there to audition. Lol. Expectedly, AI judge JLo completely lost her composure and could barely believe her eyes when she saw Kanye West standing in front of her. The super star rapper surprised her and other judges at the San Francisco, California audition of AI yesterday. He stood there and told them he wanted to try his hand at starting from the bottom ..lol.

He performed for them and of course he was sent through to the next round. And Kanye showed so much excitement to go through. He held up his ‘golden ticket’ to Hollywood’s final round to show Kim and he looked as though he was like any other contestant that made it through.

The whole thing was captured by his wife Kim who shared a clip on instagram.

Ryan Seacrest even hi-fived him, congratulating for making it through…lol

Kanye West Thinks “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” Deserves Emmys, All Of The Emmys

Kanye West recently sat down for a nearly two-hour-long interview with SHOWStudio, in a “live and unedited broadcast” as part of the site’s “In Camera” series.

Consider this prep for his presidential debates in a few years’ time; of course, he’s already a most talented orator, and offered many of the quintessential Kanye sound bites that we all know will inspire his electorate come 2020.

In other art forms Kanye believes get short shrift, he picked out the reality TV genre, and shows like Keeping Up With the Kardashians specifically.  Reality TV is “?so fucking new of an art form?,” Kanye argues, adding, “?My wife and my family should’ve had plenty of Emmys by now but reality shows are considered to be like rap was when the Mondrian [Hotel] wouldn’t let Run DMC and motherfucking Will Smith stay there because they were rappers.” Of KUWTK, he added that “everybody I know watches it,” even if some people probably only told him that to be polite.

Why People Didn’t Like The Yeezy Boost 350- Kanye West

Kanye West is currently taking part in ShowStudio’s “In Camera” live interview series and is dropping a ton of gems as expected. While breaking down his aspirations and the elements of the Yeezy Season collections, the discussion shifted towards sneakers and Kanye let loose this bomb about the polarizing adidas Yeezy Boost 350 model.

“They saw the 350s and acted like they didn’t like them because they’re racist,” he said. 

Damn, ‘Ye, tell ’em how you really feel. On the other hand, he summed up the hype for the Yeezys rather gracefully: “We sell shoes people want to line up for because we put love in them.”

Later, he got charged up while comparing his designs to other sneakers on the shelves. “There’s a time when, you know, when Michelangelo… I’m sure there were people who were sculpting better than him. But he made David,” he said. “Is there a time where [you] can go on the Internet and find a shoe that people want more than my shoes? Well go fuck yourself then if it isn’t, and don’t ask me no stupid shit like that again. With the love [laughs].”

“I designed that shoe, didn’t I? I didn’t see somebody else’s shoes getting lined up for.” Shots fired?

Grace Jones Furious At Lady Gaga & Kanye West

Grace Jones is seemingly not the biggest fan of Lady Gaga. The 67-year-old supermodel and songstress revealed during a recent interview with Bevy Smith on SiriusXM’s Bevelations that when she met Lady Gaga, she didn’t connect with her.

“Gaga came to me, and I just could not find a soul,” Jones told Smith. “I come from church — maybe that has something to do with it. I like to get to the soul of a person. I just didn’t feel a soul.”

Jones, however, made it clear that she doesn’t think Gaga is soulless. “She might have been freaked out with meeting me,” she explained. “This happened. It’s okay, but then we met three times after, through [Philip] Treacy and, boy, I got so angry.”

Angry, Jones explained, because she felt that Gaga was ripping her off when it came to sporting the designer’s work. “I know Philip needed to make some money, but you know what, can you just wait until I finish my tour before you repeat what we are working on?”

This isn’t the first time that Jones has sounded off on fellow singers.

During an interview with Paper magazine’s October 2015 issue, Jones bashed Kanye West after he had his then-girlfriend Amber Rose recreate Jones’ iconic 1985 Jean-Paul Goude photoshoot.

“Kanye has been ripping off stuff from me and Jean-Paul Goude for a long time, so it was no surprise to me,” Jones admitted. “It’s so like, ‘I can’t beat him, [so I guess I’ll try to] understand him,’” she explained.

Amber Rose’s Mom Sent A Big Message To Kanye West During Slutwalk

Amber Rose’s Slutwalk in L.A. was a huge, empowering success. ?While Amber had some truly beautiful and memorable things to say at the event, her mother, Dorothy Rose, really shut it ?down ?with one epic sign, aimed directly at Kanye West.

You’ll recall a few months ago Kanye made some rather vulgar, shame-y comments about Amber, telling the world he “?had to take thirty showers” after he dated her. On Saturday, Dorothy fired back at Kanye’s slut-shaming with this perfect sign, which read “Fuck yo 30 showers.”

The Game Kinda Implies He Dated Kim Kardashian Back In The Day

The Game was a guest on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday where he went to promote his new album, Documentary 2. And while talking about his past relationships with Kardashian sisters, Kim and Khloe, he kinda implied that he dated Kim and not Khloe.
‘Were you hooking up with Khloe Kardashian,’ Williams asked straightforward, saying she felt the two had hooked up casually at least three times.
‘No, no,’ The Game quickly responded ‘Khloe is just a good friend.She was just chill and it was never about that’ he explained.

Wendy asked again, ‘Is it true that before the Khloe rumors that you and Kim had something going on?’
The Game wasn’t as fast in denying an affair with Kim as he stumbled over his explanation. “Um, you know, uh….you know so uh, you know what’ he hesitated.
‘Kanye is great, Kim is great, they’re great for each other, you know,’ and he avoided completely answering the question.
Wendy acknowledged his vague answer and she and audience laughed, cheered and applauded.
‘Kanye is a really good friend of mine and you know, he’s got a really good family structure,’ he explained. ‘That baby is just to die for and you know I don’t want to disrespect their family infrastructure.’
Wendy replied, ‘We understand what you’re saying,’ as she gave a huge side wink to her audience.

Chelsea Clinton Reacts To Kanye West’s 2020 Presidential Bid

Chelsea Clinton has some thoughts on a potential Kanye West presidential run, namely that it could be “awesome.”

In an interview with MTV News, Clinton, 35, spoke about West’s probably joke that he was considering running for president in 2020: “Who runs for office is really important,” Clinton said. “And even if [West] just saying that helps spark a little boy or a little girl who was watching the VMAs to think, ‘Oh wow, maybe I should do that,’ that’s awesome.”

Clinton was, of course, First Daughter from 1993 to 2001. Now her mother, Hillary Clinton, is mounting her second presidential bid.

Taylor Swift And Kanye West Made Peace For Jay Z’s Sake

Earlier this year, friend of almost everyone Taylor Swift and former enemy Kanye”Imma-let-you-finish” West very publicly made peace at the Grammys. That moment, Swift reveals in an interview with Vanity Fair, came thanks to none other than Jay Z, who just wants everyone to get along!

“I feel like I wasn’t ready to be friends with [West] until I felt like he had some sort of respect for me, and he wasn’t ready to be friends with me until he had some sort of respect for me—so it was the same issue, and we both reached the same place at the same time,” Swift says. “I became friends with Jay Z, and I think it was important, for Jay Z, for Kanye and I to get along. …And then Kanye and I both reached a place where he would say really nice things about my music and what I’ve accomplished, and I could ask him how his kid’s doing.”

Idris Elba Denies James Bond Reports: ‘It’s Just A Rumour, I Have No Idea’

Idris Elba has denied any truth behind reports that he is in line to play the first black James Bond.

The Luther star has previously joked about “being handsome enough” to take on the 007 role, but has now said the reports are entirely speculative.

When asked about being neck and neck with Damian Lewis at the bookies to replace Daniel Craig, the actor told the Radio Times: “It’s just a rumour. I have no idea.”

Pierce Brosnan and Kanye West are among the high profile names who have backed Elba for the role, with the former 007 actor saying Elba “would make a good Bond”.

The actor has been rumoured to play the British spy for a number of years, but his name resurfaced again in 2014  when a hacked Sony email revealed the company thought the actor “should be the next Bond”.

 

The actor responded to the leaked email in a tweet, saying he was “glad you think I’ve got a shot!”

Elba has previously said he would definitely accept the role if it was offered to him.

In a Reddit AMA in September 2014 he said he would “absolutely” accept the role if it “was offered to me” after being asked by a fan.

Daniel Craig, who is currently filming the forthcoming Bond film Spectre, is signed to do one more movie after its release. He has previously said he would like to leave the franchise afterwards.

“I’ve been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it. But they won’t let me go, and I’ve agreed to do a couple more, but let’s see how this one does, because business is business,” he told Rolling Stone two years ago.

Kim K Reacts Angrily After Wendy Williams Says She’s Using A Surrogate

Kim reacted so angrily on Twitter yesterday that Twitter contacted her to be sure she hadn’t been hacked because the things she wrote were so unlike her. The pregnant reality star got really angry after Wendy Williams said on her show that Kim will use a surrogate for her second baby but will try to deceive the public with a prosthetic belly. Wendy told her audience;

“They’re saying that they could possibly be using a surrogate from Thailand who’s allegedly living in Kanye’s Manhattan Beach home, and they’re also alleging that Kim will buy prosthetics to baby up for every month.”

Kim didn’t find that funny and blasted Wendy Williams. See her reaction on Twitter below…

 

Kanye West: When I Worked At Gap

The 37-year-old briefly worked for the chain retailer as a teen growing up in Chicago and, by his own account, did not enjoy it. In his 2004 song “Spaceship,” from his debut album The College Dropout, West rapped that he made “no scratch” at the retailer, so he stole from it and eventually quit. Still, it was obviously a formative experience for him.

OMG!!! Kanye West Considering Surrogate? Kim Kardashian Might Not Have Another Baby

Kris Jenner left our jaws hanging when she shared a video clip on her instagram. The clip was a heads up for their show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”, in which she urged fans to tune in for new episodes.

We were shocked when Kim K mentioned that Kanye West said they might consider a surrogate for another child and Kim is totally not cool with that decision. She was all moody and almost in tears while Scott Disick looked at her in shock.

Kanye West Soon To Become A Pastor, Studying Theology & Religion

Kanye West is “becoming a reverend”. The Bound 2 hitmaker has reportedly began an online course in theology and religion so he is able to join the clergy.

A pal told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: “In the past year or two Kanye has become something of a born-again Christian. He used to go to church all the time as a kid but he lapsed badly as he got older.

“Now he’s a father he’s become more spiritual and a better person. He is even smiling a lot and thinks becoming a reverend will bring him closer to God.”

The 37-year-old rapper – who has 21-month-old daughter North with wife Kim Kardashian West – will certainly not be afraid of addressing the wider issues in his sermons.

Recently he spoke up about racism, referring to it as a “dated concept” that is used to “separate and alienate” people from one another.

He said: “Racism is a dated concept. It’s like a silly concept that people try to touch on to either… to separate, to alienate, to pinpoint anything. It’s stupid.

“It’s like a bouncing ball in a room with two cats, or something, when you don’t feel like playing with a cat. Let them literally fight over the bouncing ball. And the bouncing ball has nothing, no purpose, anything other than that it bounces. That’s racism. It’s not an actual thing that even means anything.”

The Stronger hitmaker also referred to himself as a “servant to God”.

He added: “The more power that you have, the less you are a king; the more you are a servant, the more power you have…

“To position yourself as a servant, because that’s all we are, we’re servants to God. This is a Christian view of mine.”

So ‘Awesome’! Kanye West’s Alleged Ode to Kim Kardashian Leaks Online.

It’s no secret that Kanye West thinks his wife, Kim Kardashian, is awesome. In fact, he even wrote a song, which is supposedly about her, that he titled “Awesome.” And now you can hear the ode.

Kanye first performed the song live at the Met Ball in 2013, a few months before the release of Yeezus. A few moments of the song also showed up in an episode of Kim’s reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians in September.

The song, a loving, auto-tuned slow jam, really drives home the idea that he thinks Kim is “awesome.” In fact, he thinks she’s “so awesome.”

Did you look at that tshirt well? Nawa o. For starters, the poor white tshirt is tired. It has been probably washed a thousand times. The neck line is worn out and gosh!!!, Kim had to post it on Instagram.

The question now is, is it intentional or she was so in-love with her side view pic that she did not notice the holes?

“One Of My Biggest Achilles Heels Has Been My Ego”- Kanye West.

Each time Kanye West delivers one of his “rants” or “meltdowns,” if you listen, really listen, to what he is saying, there is always a nugget of truth hidden in the rhetoric.

Nothing was different when Kanye West spoke Monday at North West’s future alma mater, Oxford University, before a group of 350 students. His self-described stream of consciousness lasted for about 30 minutes and touched on a range of topics, from The Matrix, to ego, to materialism, to Nicki Minaj.

VIDEO: “He Should Have Given His Award to Beyonce”, Kanye West Confronts Grammy Winner Again

Kanye West ripped into the Grammy’s album of the year-winner Beck in a rant backstage that suggested his stage-rush earlier in the evening was no joke.

“Beck needs to respect artistry, he should’ve given his award to Beyonce,” said Kanye in an interview with E! Online. Beck beat out Beyonce in the category, as well as Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Pharrell Williams. That apparently irked West who stepped onstage as Beck accepted the award in what appeared to be a joke that echoed his interruption of Taylor Swift in 2009 at the MTV Music awards.

West said he didn’t say anything on the show because he did not want to put his family or “clothing line” at risk, but added: “I’m going to fight for creativity.”

Kim Kardashian Gives Amber Rose A Challenge By Displaying Curves In FUR Bikini

 
KimKardashian/Instagram

Kim Kardashian is not afraid to make a bold move when it comes to fashion, but that didn’t stop our surprise to see her in a FURKINI.

The brunette beauty shared a couple of stunning shots on her Instagram page of the new addition to her wardrobe from her recent 24-hour ski trip.

The furkini, as Kim called it, was set on white string displaying her famous curves as she posed OUTSIDE to display her bikini and matching boots.

 

Kim, 34, clearly proud of the furry swimwear as she wrote: “Baby it’s cold outside…..”

While later calling it a “Furkini”.

Set against a snowy backdrop, Kim poses for the camera with her dark locks flowing, showing off the hard work she’s put in the gym.

She later added another Instagram photo with matching boots, along with the caption: “Boots with the fur..”

Her husband Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose has been putting on a display of garish bikinis and monokinis during her recent break in Miami but we think this round goes to Kim K.

Can you imagine what the label says? Be wretched if it said ‘dry-clean only’ wouldn’t it?

While we love a little Bam Bam – this is part-Yetti vibe is not a look we want to see by the swimming pool this summer thanks.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West descended on the slopes for a mini ski break this weekend – and it was romance central as they joined in an eight couple date.

The reality star and her hubby had a cheeky photo session together as they took to the snow in their most glamorous ski gear.

Posing together for the best selfie we’ve seen from them in a long time, the pair cover up in fur hoods and bandanas, with Kim hiding behind huge ski goggles.

And it’s impossible to see if Kanye’s smiling, as his stunning wife pouts next to him (we’ll take a wild guess he’s not).

kimkardashian/instagram

 

Another shows the pair stood together with gloves at the ready, no doubt preparing to race each other down – because we like to think they’re a bit competitive like that.

Kim wrote: “Skiing with my [heart]!”

Wearing a shiny black jacket and tight black leggings, the star took the opportunity to flaunt those famous curves.

And who needs shades when you have goggles like THESE?

 

The star met with a group of old friends and their other halves for the trip, and posted a snap of all the girls, writing: “Best 24 hr ski trip with 8 couples! All my best friends from childhood, nope they won’t let me tag them or name them. I respect their privacy by just posting a pic lol.”

Although we know Kim is partial to a bit of fur:

Kanye Overhauls Kim Wardrobe for 2015

Expect Kim Kardashian to dress differently this year than she did in 2014. The reality TV star has overhauled her wardrobe with the help of her husband, Kanye West.

“Up all night redoing my whole wardrobe with Kanye…” she wrote on Twitter. “I’m so ready for new looks for the New Year! New 2015 vision.”

Kardashian, 34, explained about a year ago that motherhood had inspired her to “dress a little lighter color-wise,” but fans of her show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” know that West, 37, is perhaps her biggest fashion influence.

In fact, this isn’t the first time he’s taken control of her clothes. A few years ago, he did the exact same thing, even bringing in his stylist to help her change her look.

“Kanye’s definitely inspired me to want to be a little bit more of an individual,” she said. “I think my style’s just evolving and changing, and I think it should.”

Details into Kim and Kanye’s Divorce “Talks”

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce is coming and Kim’s nasty Thanksgiving Twitter message implicitly excluding Kanye from her family while he was with his boyfriends in Paris shows the marriage is on it’s last legs. Most people are with family on Thanksgiving, or they make an attempt to be with family or loved ones. Not the case with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, however, as the couple adds more fuel to the divorce rumors circulating. Not only do these two have the money and means to be together, but they are certainly able to manipulate their schedules so that they are able to make the time to share the family holiday with one another.

In fact, not only were the two apart for Thanksgiving, Kim made it very clear that Kanye is the outsider now as she quietly makes plans for a future without the rapper. Kim and North were at Khloe’s while Kanye was in his favorite place…Paris. Kim tweeted, “Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so thankful to have spent the day with my whole family over at Khloe’s house today! Khloe cooked so much yummy food!” Notice the words “whole family” in that post? No mention of her missing hubby, then a very clear point made about who Kim considers her family. I guess that whole Kanye/daughter/marriage thing doesn’t constitute a “family” in Kim’s eyes. Kim knew she was sending a very clear message to fans when sending that tweet.

It wasn’t just Kim who made the decision to be apart. Kanye has been complaining about Kris nonstop to Kim and she cannot take much more. He criticizes Kim for still letting Kris Jenner run the show, claiming she has too much power. Kim needs Kris in her corner, however, because Kris will help with damage control after the divorce. Kanye wasn’t too excited about being with Kris and the family, so he went to his favorite retreat—Paris—to be with friends. No concert, no paid obligation. He was eating dinner in a restaurant with friends in Paris on Thanksgiving. Of course, if the couple has the means to fly to one another to be together if they’d have wanted to, but that simply was not the case. Kim didn’t want to be in Paris and was not willing to budge. Kanye, on the other hand, purposely fled to Paris after learning of Kim kardashian’s dalliances in Dubai after being caught with Tyrese Gibson. He didn’t want to be around and insisted he wanted some space. Though he though Kim may follow, she opted to stay with her “whole family.”

While the “friends” Kanye shared the special holiday with have not been disclosed, many believe one guest in attendance was Kanye’s reported secret lover, designer Riccardo Tisci. Kanye has long battled rumors of being gay and having had a sexual relationship with Tisci. The fact that the two wore matching shirts to Tisci’s recent 40thbirthday party, may be another telling sign that the two are a little too close for comfort. How many heterosexual men do you know who plan to wear matching shirts to a birthday party? A little odd.

After the Kim and Tyrese encounter, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian each talking to their exes,  Kim’s visit to divorce attorney Laura Wasser, and now spending Thanksgiving apart—it is only a matter of time before these two split for good.

Secret Threesome With Kanye West And Amber Rose Revealed

Kim Kardashian‘s career may be on shaky grounds after new reports claim she was once involved in a tawdry threesome with husband Kanye West and his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose.

According to In Touch magazine – who broke the news – the 34-year-old reality star is been put in-check by her hubby who is reportedly using the ‘secret’ to have control over her at home.

A source connected to the star told the mag, “She spent years trying to change people’s perception of her, ever since the sex tape came out [in 2007]… and this can undo everything.”

amber-rose-kim-kardashian-belfie

Radaronline reports that word of her extra-curricular activities getting out could be especially bad for Kardashian’s business. The site claims, Kim is completely ‘terrified’ he [Kanye] will tell the world what he did. “She’s also built her brand and an empire” valued at over $40 million,” the insider added.

Kimye’s rep has however denied the story but In Touch is claiming multiple insiders have revealed that Kim K cheated on a longtime boyfriend – Reggie Bush – with Kanye and another woman who happens to be also famous.

Another source told the mag, “Kanye was obsessed with Kim and wanted to have a three-way with her, and she didn’t hesitate… Kim and Kanye had already been seeing each other behind her boyfriend’s back, and Kanye brought this other woman into it…. “

The only problem was… “the other woman ended up getting jealous of Kim because Kanye was more into Kim than he was into her,” ended the source.

Hottest Couple Ever???

Some people are of the opinion that the Kimye couple are quite more real and cuter than the power couple, Beyonce and Jay Z.

Well we were forced to almost agree to that opinion after an adorable photo posted  by Kim Kardashian. She posted this photo of herself with her “Bae”, stepping out in the morning and gosh… they look like they were meant for each other, with both celebrities complimenting each others’ swag and elegance.

She also said her hand bag was painted by her daughter, North and some of us were wondering why someone would let their children toy with their  expensive stuff. #TooMuch Money.

Kanye West Justifies Wheelchair Incidence

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Have Dinner Date In Miami

Kanye West has stood up to defend himself as regards to the recent media lash, which accused him of insisting that a handicapped fan must stand during one of his concerts.

During a performance in Brisbane on Monday, West took a moment to explain his side of the story and criticize the media for highlighting Friday’s misunderstanding.  He said,

“They’ve got this thing where they want the masses, the people who’ve never even heard one of my albums, to somehow read a headline that reads negative and to think that I’m a bad person. But the thing is … I’m a married Christian man with a family,” West said during his five-minute speech. “At my concerts, I make sure everybody has as good a time as possible. So all this demonizing me, it ain’t going to work after a while. Pick a new target, because I’m not one of these dumba** artists that you’re used to.”

His wife, Kim Kardashian West, also took on Instagram backing her husband’s justification on the wheelchair incidence. She said, “It’s frustrating that something so awesome could be clouded by lies in the media… Kanye never asked anyone in a wheel chair to stand up & the audience videos show that. He asked for everyone to stand up & dance UNLESS they were in a wheel chair.”

D’BANJ DON JAZZY SPLIT, DON JAZZY TO UNVEIL NEW RECORD LABEL

The recent announcement that Nigeria’s most celebrated entertainer Don Jazzy, chief executive of Mo’Hit records and his partner D’Banj, the number one musician on the label, have parted ways, has left most Nigerians still reeling in shock.
Most people are yet to come to terms with the development as the broken down relationship many thought was made by the gods was untouchable.
Their decision to part ways was something our source said was agreed upon by the two former pals.
It was taken long before the deal by D’Banj, Don Jazzy and Kanye West’s GOOD music was sealed.
The lack of a business structure in Mo’Hit records made the company the butt of a joke especially in the international business community. Everything seemed to revolve around D’Banj alone.
It was becoming increasingly difficult for both to continue as partners because Don Jazzy who doubles as the label’s producer was having difficulties controlling D’Banj who was also a partner in the business.
Conflicts often arose in the house because of the seeming financial gap between D’Banj and other artistes on the label.
This grossly affected the business and also contributed to the duo relocating to the Island leaving the other artistes at their former abode in Maryland, Lagos.
The situation between the two deepened to a point where other artistes on the label were made to look ordinary.
Often, Don Jazzy faced an uphill task convincing other Mo’Hit records sign-on like Wande Coal, Dr. Sid and The Prince that he (Don Jazzy) was as committed to their career as he was to D’Banj’s.
Several newspapers in the past had talked about the situation but the record company through their managers had often denied having conflicts in the house.
The recording of a promotion song for President Goodluck Jonathan by D’Banj, was the icing on the cake as Nigerians descended on the Mo’Hit crew and accusing them of a sell out.
During the protest against government decision to remove subsidy on petrol, Nigerians took to the internet, calling for the head of D’Banj.
Don Jazzy desperate to protect his record company, quickly disassociated it from a sell-out. He went as far as tweeting on the wall of his Twitter that he regretted ever associating with the President.
To crown it all, D’Banj was no where to be found when the heat was turned on his partners.
Don Jazzy has since moved out of the mansion they once shared in Lekki Phase 1 and he’s currently squatting with Dr Sid at 1004, the same estate that Wande Coal lives on Victoria Island.
As at the time of filing in our story, Don Jazzy may have finalised arrangement to unveil his own record label which sources say will be structured in a way no one musician will hold sway.
