Kanye West is a famous rapper, husband of Kim Kardashian and a father of four children, and now also a US presidential candidate from the party with the name “The Birthday party“, albeit from one state. In general, an extraordinary personality!
In this article, we will discuss what we know about Kanye West.
Kanye’s Career as a Musician
Kanye West was a producer at Roc-A-Fella in the early 2000s: he collaborated with Jay-Z, Common and other stars of the time. In 2004, he first took to the stage – and to date has released nine solo albums, not counting collaborations with other artists. Production, however, he also did not abandon.
For his musical achievements, West has received 21 Grammy awards, and Time magazine twice included him in the list of the 100 most influential people on the planet.
In 1997, 20-year-old West dropped out to pursue music and production. But in 2015, his achievements were marked with an honorary diploma from the College of Art of the University of Chicago, so the issue was resolved with education. It is curious that the rector of the university said that this decision was dictated by West’s desire to study, which the singer demonstrated in the first album, The College Dropout.
In 2012, 35-year-old Kanye began dating Kim Kardashian. On June 15, 2013, their daughter North was born, and in October he proposed to her to get married. The proposal to marry was furnished like a king: the rapper rented the stadium and put on the big screen the phrase “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE !!!!”, dropped to one knee in front of friends and relatives. Of course, Kim could not refuse!
This was her third marriage, and West’s first. Together they built a real business empire, not forgetting to appear in the reality show “The Kardashian Family”, as well as raising four children (two – Chicago and Psalm – gave birth to a surrogate mother). According to recent estimates, the Kardashian-West family owns assets of more than a billion dollars.
In May 2018, it became known that the rapper was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and back in 2016.
West, however, was not very upset: he admitted that the features of the psyche allow him to create, but at the same time create some problems in everyday life. He even wrote a song for the Ye album that BAR is not a disorder, but a superpower! And he, accordingly, is a superhero.
Kim Kardashian does not like to answer questions about the diagnosis, but once she said that this aspect does not bother her.
However, she’s probably already used to the fact that Kanye is known for his strange antics. When Taylor Swift received the Best Female Video Award in 2009, he took the microphone from her and said that Beyoncé should have won.
In one interview, he stated that slavery was a personal choice, not imposed from above. He still recalls this statement.
West has long been interested in politics, called Donald Trump his brother and planned to run for president in the United States in 2024. And then he changed his mind – and made himself known already in these elections.
True, he was a little late with the application and at the time of publication of this material was registered only in the state of Oklahoma. But the hype has already risen, and if anything – he has four years for more thorough preparation. It is obvious that in light of recent events, West’s candidacy will receive strong support from various sectors of society. Unless, of course, in these four years he comes up with something else!
