#BirthdaySpecial: Five Facts We Bet You Didn’t Know About Kanye West Aka Yeezy

“My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.”

On the special day of a very special rapper, Kanye West, we decided to unearth some spicy and interesting facts that are sure to take you by surprise: 

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian share more than just love 

Tales about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are old news now but a lesser-known fact is that they share a common love for a popular fast-food chain: Mc Donalds. But surprisingly, it was revealed in 2018 that they own multiple outlets of Burger King across the United States Of America! 

Kanye West is on the Top 10 list of successful rappers according to Grammy Awards

Winning a Grammy is one thing but landing the 8th spot on their most successful rappers in the history list is another. He is a proud winner of over 110 awards and 21 of those are the prestigious Grammy Awards. Now that’s proof of what true passion for music and genuine raw talent can do! 

All Kanye West’s albums are mostly a record breaker but the album that really helped him land some crazy fame was ‘The College Dropout.’ 

There was a time when Kanye West had difficulty paying rent 

Kanye West is actually a college dropout and as a consequence, he had to see some really difficult times in his life. To pay rent, he ended up working as a telemarketer. Bored of that job, he even considered becoming a porn star but his former fiancé, Alexis Phifer, convinced him to drop the idea for good. 

But whatever may come, his never give up attitude ultimately helped him climb the golden stairs of success. According to Forbes, Kanye West’s net worth is $1.3 billion as of 2020. Whooop, now that’s a HUGE amount! 

Kanye West’s Sunday Service is an invite-only exclusive event

Ever since January 2019, Kanye West has been hosting Sunday Service every Sunday without fail. But did you know- the guests for the same are made to sign a non-disclosure agreement to keep things private and there’s a special Yeezy approved outfit for the choir every week! He got this idea from Netflix’s ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.’ 

Apart from being a rapper, Kanye West is famous for his fashion sense too 

We know this isn’t an unknown fact but maybe this is: the world-famous rapper has inspired many leading fashion icons including (wait-for-it) Michael Jackson himself! MJ is said to have called him up to ask where he got that jacket he’s wearing in the video of ‘Stronger’ from. 

Happy Birthday to the man whose hard work knows no bounds!
