Kanye West Rumors
After visibly cracking a smile at Game 4 of the NBA Finals, Kanye West decided to have a quick postgame “press conference” with the remaining media where he talked about the struggle out there on the court. Julie Phayer: Kanye Podium Game. #ThatsRiley
Kanye West turned 38 on Monday, and his wife, Kim Kardashian, helped him celebrate with a truly epic gift: she rented out the Staples Center in LA and brought all of the rapper’s friends along for a basketball game. Instead of watching the Los Angeles Lakers take the court, Kanye and his friends split themselves into two teams — East and West — for their own game. Kim’s sister Khloé shared an Instagram snap of the group in their jerseys, writing, “Kim rented out staples b*tch!!! Him and his boys are going to ball!!!! Happy birthday Yeezy!!!!” Kylie Jenner also posted a photo of herself with Khloé and her BFF Malika getting silly courtside.
But it’s almost always hip-hop. Some Drake, Kanye West, sometime’s it’s edgier stuff. Sometimes it’s throwbacks like Biggie, Tupac, DMX. And if it’s Jimmy Butler’s turn in the Chicago locker room, it’s some country too. “I get my own playlist in warmups sometimes,” Butler told ProBasketballTalk. “My teammates don’t like it very much because it’s country music, but they get over it.” Country? Yes. Starting with Taylor Swift. “I like Taylor Swift,” Butler said. “I like music as a whole, but her music is kinda catchy. I’m sure she’ll hear this interview now and be like ‘what’s going on?’”
You’ve got Jay Z involved with the Nets, you’ve got Drake with the Raptors, Lupe’s doing stuff with the World Cup. Most of us are young black dudes who sacrificed to provide for our families and do what we love, so that’s a deep bond we have-in music and in sports. I want to be a shot in the arm to DC basketball. My job is to provide a spark, at all costs. I’m not going to do anything corny, but I’m talking to Kanye about designing new uniforms.
Kris Humphries has been voted the most hated NBA player, taunted in areanas across America, dissed on record by Kanye West and threatened by Kardashian minions, and he’s still trying to turn his most public loss into a W. On Wednesday, Humphries auctioned off the engagement ring Kim Kardashian wore for only a few months and got $749,000 for it.
