Kanye Omari West was born in Atlanta, Georgia on June 8, 1977. West went to Chicago, Illinois, with his mother after his parents divorced when he was three years old.

Kanye West’s Career!

West’s major break came in 2000 when he started working as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records, where he worked with artists including Ludacris, Alicia Keys, and Janet Jackson.

West’s work on Jay-2001 Z’s album The Blueprint piqued attention in his production abilities. Jay-Z, Beyoncé, John Legend, Alicia Keys, and Janet Jackson are just a few of the artists on his production credits from this time period.

West’s major ambition, despite his fame as a producer, was to become a rapper. After being refused a deal with Capitol Records, he persuaded the head of Capitol Records to sign him to Roc-A-Fella Records in 2001.

Kanye West was motivated after a catastrophic vehicle accident in October 2002, during which he cracked his jaw, and recorded the song Through the Wire with his mouth still wired shut.

This song set the tone for his debut album, The College Dropout, which was leaked months ahead of its August 2003 release date.

West took use of the extra time to remix, remaster, and edit the album, delaying its release three times.

The College Dropout was eventually released in February 2004 to significant critical acclaim, earning him ten Grammy Award nominations and triple platinum certification in the United States.

West put a two-million-dollar investment into his second album’s production, even hiring a full string orchestra.

Late Registration was published in August 2005, and by the end of the year, it had sold over 2.3 million units in the United States. Graduation (2007), 808s & Heartbreak (2008), My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010), Watch the Throne (2011), Yeezus (2013), The Life of Pablo (2016), Ye (2018), and Jesus is King (2018) are among his later albums (2019).

In 2013, West released the album Yeezus. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, as well as the R&B and Rap charts in the United States and four other countries.

In 2016, he released The Life of Pablo, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and #2 on the US Rap and US R&B charts.

The track “FourFiveSeconds” by Kanye West (with Rihanna and Paul McCartney) debuted at number one on the US R&B chart.

He was nominated for six Grammy Awards in 2017. Ye, his most recent album, was released in June 2018. Unfortunately, Ye was Kanye’s first album to fail to reach platinum status.

West has continued to work as a producer and featured artist for other musicians, including 6ix9ine, XXXTentacion, Lil Pump, Chance the Rapper, Kid Cudi, and Teyana Taylor, in addition to his own albums and projects.

His weekly “Sunday Service” orchestration with the Sunday Service Choir, which he has performed every Sunday since January 2019, is one of his other music-related initiatives.

On two operas, Nebuchadnezzar and Mary, he partnered with contemporary artist Vanessa Beecroft.

Kim and Kanye’s primary residence is a huge estate in the Hidden Hills district of Los Angeles, California.

This estate consists of several interconnected properties, the first of which was purchased for $23 million in two separate transactions in 2014.

On 4.5 acres, they had a newly completed home in the first edition of their property. The couple spent millions of dollars refurbishing, reorganising, and enlarging the house over the next four years.

In 2019, they expanded their estate with two separate transactions for nearby properties, resulting in a 7.5-acre behemoth.

In real estate transactions alone, the Hidden Hills estate has cost a staggering $28.5 million. Renovations have increased the cost by tens of millions of dollars.

Their mansion in Hidden Hills is currently valued at over $60 million. In September 2021, Kim paid Kanye $23 million to formally transfer the property under her name.
