Kanye West

Outspoken and controversial, Kanye West (b. June 8, 1977) is a rapper, producer, director, entrepreneur and fashion designer born out of Chicago. Although his entrance onto the scene came through producing hits for the likes of Alicia Keys, Ludacris, and Janet Jackson, it wasn’t until he came out with his own records that he really became world renowned. The incendiary artist has since become the most Grammy-awarded artist of anyone his age–and he hasn’t stopped yet. West and reality star princess Kim Kardashian were married in 2014 and recently had a daughter together, North West, nicknamed “Nori.” The couple are often in vast communication with their fans via Twitter and Instagram, and have no shortage of things to say. West is often touted as having a rather large ego–as demonstrated by his strong opinions and public rants, so celebrity news fans are always waiting to hear what he’s done next.
