Kanye West Rumors
Alex Kennedy: These celebrities are expected to attend Game 6 of the NBA Finals tonight: – Dave Chappelle – Chance The Rapper – Kanye West – Chris Tucker – Gucci Mane – Julius “Dr. J” Erving – Marques Johnson – Michael Redd – Brandon Jennings – Aaron Jones – Donald Driver – Antonio Freeman
Footage of Kanye West in the studio playing new music for Tyler, The Creator emerged Saturday. Later that day, Kanye apparently held another listening session with Kevin Durant and Justin Laboy in Las Vegas — where Kanye also sat courtside with Ice Cube at Cube’s BIG3 basketball event.
The 32-year-old Durant said he found himself studying a lot of musicians, architects, creators and artists. “I wanted to see how they got to that point mastering their craft,” Durant told Porter. “From a Basquiat to a Dr. Dre to a Michael Jordan to a Jay Electronica. All types of people that I feel are great at what they do. Elon Musk, guys like that who really spent a lot of time thinking. Kanye West. I just try to see what their perspective was and try to make it my own and do my own thing.”
The bday getaway was super lavish … our sources say Kim flew 40 of her closest friends and family on a Boeing 777 to the private isle, where they were handed keys to their own private villas on the beach. Kim’s guest list included … Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, La La Anthony, Corey Gamble, NBA studs Devin Booker and Tristan Thompson, plus Scott and Mason Disick. We’re told Kanye West was not present for Kim’s actual birthday — he had some work commitments — but Yeezy joined the trip for the final few days.
Kanye West: I need to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony. I’m not gonna watch my people be enslaved. I’m putting my life on the line for my people. The music industry and the NBA are modern day slave ships. I’m the new Moses.
