In the world of artists, none reign atop controversies like Kanye West. Despite his musical talent, the rapper has been embroiled in some nasty controversies, keeping the public divided about how they feel about the artist.
Kanye West has been in a messy divorce since last year, with most of the dispute being very public and embarrassing. The artist has also included the contents of the dispute in his productions, such as True love and Eazy.
Havin’ money’s the everything, not havin’ it is
In a less toxic controversy, an Instagram account RapThoughtsDaily stated that Kanye West charged $1 million for performance. Weirdly enough Kanye West decided to correct the user of the account.

Previously, the RapThoughtsDaily Instagram account had put together a list of artists and their performance fees, the list ranged from artists including JID, Denzel Curry, Kid Cudi, Drake, and many more, with Young Thug taking the cake at $1.5 million.
Kanye West calls out an IG page to edit their caption after the page made a post claiming he collects just $1 Million for shows… The rapper says he collects $8 Million for shows‼️

Hilariously, when fans on Twitter did the math, they find the number to be a little off, little here means quite a lot. They estimated if Kanye did take $8 million to perform for one show, he would be charging a ridiculous $10,000 per seat.
Kanye West is trying to say that he gets $8 million a show which is not possible unless they charge $10,000 per seat.
Another “pay attention to me” rant by an asshole madman.
