In the world of hip-hop, only a few have ever managed to get their names to the highest level possible, and all of that with only a couple of things in common. Perseverance and utter belief in oneself. Back in the days, people did not consider hip-hop as the real deal. Only thought that people who did not have any other things to do with their lives only indulged themselves in this form of music. But the person that we are talking about today proved everyone wrong. His name is Kanye West.
Yes, the same Kanye, who at the moment remains as one of the most recognized hip-hop artists with more hits than any other every. As a matter of fact, as we said earlier, there remain only a few who have managed to reach the level that Kanye currently reigns at. Despite moving aside from producing and bringing new music, Kanye still has a massive influence over the industry and how it runs all the time.
If Kanye wants, he can casually drop his new music and get the whole wide world crazy over his work. Some of the artists who remain at his level are P. Diddy and others, as well. While Eminem also remains a famous figure in the hip-hop scene, usually people consider him a god. Moreover, there is nobody that denies these claims as well. But let’s not take this road to discuss Eminem and focus on Kanye here.
As we mentioned, Kanye has his own regime going one and everything, but what about his personal life? Well, most of you already have the idea, but let’s talk all about it in detail, shall we? Who is Kanye married to, and what does his personal life look like?
Kanye West Early Life
One of the most famous hip-hop artists, Kanye West, who people also consider as one of the OGs, was born on June 8, 1977, in Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America. At the moment, Kanya is already 42 years old. But he does not look like a man who has already crossed the threshold of 40.
How is that even possible? Well, simply by taking very good care of yourself and eating right is one of the main reason behind all of Kanye’s success in looking good and feeling good all the time. Now that you know how Kanye maintains such a young-looking persona go on and try it for yourself.
Kanye was born to father Ray West and mother Dr. Donda C West. Both of his parents lived a very happy life initially, but later on, because of some problems, things started to deteriorate between the couple. Ray and Donda ended up divorcing one another when Kanye was just a small boy of three years of age.
After the divorce, which Kanye remained fairly young to understand fully, he began living with his mother, and Donda raised Kanya as a single mother. Both his parents always put up fairly for themselves as Kanye’s father is one of the first black photojournalists at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
On the other hand, Kanye’s mother was a professor of English at the Clark Atlanta University and also held a place at Chicago State University. Late, Donda retired and started to serve as Kanye’s manager. When Kanye began to swell and became wildly famous, his mother managed all of his connections and kept a tab of it all.
Kanye West Education
West, from a very young age, began living with his mother, who held positions at colleges as a professor. Donda remained a very learned person as people address her as Dr. instead of Miss. Now, clearly, you can guess the impact of it all on Kanye as his mother always focused on his education initially.
As a young child, Kanye joined the Polaris High School located in Oak Lawn. Initially living in Chicago and moving from there are after divorce, West and his mother moved to China. The move came because Donda relocated to China to become a professor as a part of the exchange. While there, Kanye also learned a few Chinese words as well.
In an interview, Kanye revealed that he always remained a very good student. West always remained very excellent consistency when it came to grades as well. He said that most of the time, Kanye was the student who nearly every time managed to score an A or at least a B in other cases and no lying in this.
After graduating from Polaris High School, Kanye began to take his interest in music very seriously and decided to continue his further higher studies in Arts. With his excellent grades, Kanye managed to get a scholarship at the American Academy of Art back in 1997, located in Chicago.
As a son of a college professor, nobody saw this coming as Kanye dropped out of college at the age of 20. He decided that college was just not for him and that he wanted to do something in the field of his interest, which was making music.
Regardless of how rageful his mother got at this action, she quickly supported Kanye, for his determination always remained unshaken.
Back in the days, Kanye entangled in a couple of very high profile flings with very beautiful women. With a personality that most people always crave to have, Kanye bears it all like a boss. He also uses his personality to magnate other very attractive personalities per se.
Back in the days, West reportedly dated Alexis Phifer, Amber Rose, Selita, Chanel Iman, Brooke Crittenton. However, Kanye never got as close to getting married to any of them. After dating a handful of women, Kanye then came across the beautiful and undoubtedly sexy Kim Kardashian in 2014.
After dating for a while, Kanye and Kim decided to get married in a lavish wedding ceremony in Fort di Belvedere located in Italy. But, before getting married, Kanye and Kim welcomed a baby girl in 2013 and named her Nori West. After getting married, Kanye and Kim welcomed two more children.
In 2015, Kanye and Kim welcomed a baby boy named Saint West. Three years after the birth of Chicago, Kanye and Kim again welcomed a baby boy and named him Chicago West. Kanye’s children remain more famous than most of the celebrities of this date. The whole family lives a very happy life at the moment.
Music and art for Kanye always seemed like breathing to him as it all started very early for Kanye. From the age of five, Kanye began writing poems and composing music, although maturely. West’s mother, Donda, noticed the skill that Kanye possessed from a very young age and always supported him to do better.
At the age of thirteen, Kanye started picking up to the genre of rapping and also started to compose music pieces which he would then sell to other artists. Kanye recorded his first rap song called Green Eggs and Ham when he was just thirteen years old. His mother paid for all the time in the recording studio.
As his talents started to cross a particular threshold, Kanye began attracting like-minded artists and came to meet DJ cum producer whose show name was No I.D. Kanye, and the producer got along very well, and the artists ended up acting as a mentor to Kanye in his initial days.
West dropped out of high school at the age of 20, so he could freely pursue his career in music. Kanye started to work as a professional producer for some local artists and ended up making nine tracks for an album. At the moment, Kanye has managed to become of the mogul in music and fashion, as well.
West introduced the world to Yeezy shoes in collaboration with Adidas. Kanye also works with other major clothing brands to come up with very unique and trending clothing pieces.
At the moment, Kanye remains a very prominent figure in the music industry with numerous labels and works under his belt. Kanye has worked with major artists of the century and also dropped some music that still remains classic in the Hip-hop genre like the one song. It is called the Heartless.
All of this has brought Kanye immense fame and needless to say, a massive fortune as well. At the moment, Kanye has a massive net worth of $160 million and still counting. Right now, his fame remains on top of everything as his spouse Kim Kardashian also remains on top of headlines all the time.
