This guy is a stain on the human gene.. really though, Kanye should just get exiled to some abandoned island or something for the rest of his life.

It's pathetic really how many famous people who should be loaded who are poor or in debt. it's because these dumb asses think they own the whole damn world and lose all notions of finance management. They just figure they can afford anything and don't even bother to consider what they will do if they stop making millions everyday.

weebstuen

It seems like no one here is willing to actually be constructive, so i'm out.

I guess I will play with you for a bit. Since you insulted me a little.
I admit, when I seen the thread title, I checked Google and seen multiple articles from major news publications stating Kayne was in debt. I dug deeper and confirmed his tweet below.


I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart...
— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 14, 2016

Based on his own words, I proceeded with my own personal comments.

Kayne invested a lot into his fashion line, which has been disastrous to this current date. I assume that is where the 53 million in personal debt primarily comes from. The fashion world appears to be rejecting him as well.

Reaching out Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page over social media without a solid business plan is not business savvy at all. If you were a billionaire, would you honestly invest in Kayne? If I were passionate about anything and reached out to you over social media would you give me money?

Throughout his career Kayne has been showing signs of a self destructing personality. When his first fashion venture failed he bashed the entire fashion industry. You admitted that he says stupid stuff and does stupid stuff and has apologized only to do something else. In the business world you can't burn bridges and expect to succeed. Even Donald Trump has lost endorsements, and business ventures for his actions. Kayne and Kim are notorious for posting outlandish tweets or pictures to get attention. Kayne's album has recently released also. Just seems suspicious.

I can't blame people on this forum for having a negative opinion towards Kayne. I think the fame has gotten to him extremely, and yes he may be talented/creative to an extent but his public image hasn't been the greatest.

You also quoted that Kayne is arguable the most successful rapper of all time. Actually Jay-Z, Master P, Puff Daddy, Dr Dre... To name a few are the most successful rappers financially. This isn't about jealously, or hate. It is a matter of opinion. I will assume you are part of the younger generation since you seem to have a high admiration for Kayne. You also seem quite frustrated at the dissatisfaction of Kayne. You are entitled to your opinion.

The president of the United Stated even called Kayne a jackass. Are you angry with him as well?

You compared a anime forum to a hip-hop forum to throw out everyones validity, as if what people are saying is irrelevant. But I also visit hip-hop forums and a lot of people dislike Kayne also, and even speculating that he either did this for attention, drunk or high at the time he sent the tweets out. They believe he is self destructive. Is this constructive enough for you?

Even now, I see that Kayne has posted more crazy tweets.


To Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, New York Times, and any other white publication. Please do not comment on black music anymore.

I love love love white people but you don't understand what it means to be the great grandson of ex slaves and make it this far.

The system is designed for colored people to fail and one of our only voices is music. One of our only ways out is music.
— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 15, 2016

How can he be taken seriously when he continuously does stuff like this? You don't see Jay-Z doing stuff like this and he is highly successful.

If Kim stays with Kayne, he will be fine. She is plenty of millions to share. So he probably won't go broke completely anytime soon.

If someone like Kanye West managed to get himself 53 million in debt then he deserves to be in debt. He doesn't deserve anyones help. It's rather funny how he will publicly beg for handouts though. Made for a good laugh.

Just to be clear here, "$53 million debt" doesn't mean he doesn't have any money. I'm $50k in debt (student loans), and I have no trouble meeting my needs. It's more of a function of how much you make vs. how much you owe. US debt is 18 trillion (which is a problem), but the government isn't yet bankrupt. Kanye makes considerably more (I assume) than a paltry $53m. In short, he can afford to have a shit-ton of debt, although it does limit his business ventures, which is something he's understandably not happy with. From what I've heard, however, his business ventures aren't successful enough to interest investors, so it does seem more like a plea than a business proposal.

Kanye needs to sit down with that bullshit. Ain't no way in hell someone should give him one billion dollars for any reason. Let his ass suffer.
