Today we celebrate one of the world’s most controversial rap stars Kanye West!
He is no doubt one of the best-selling and most awarded artists of all time.
Kanye has received a staggering 21 Grammy Awards in a little over a decade. He was ranked the 3rd top producer of the decade in 2010 by Billboard. He’s received praise for such albums as The College Dropout (2004), Graduation (2007), My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010) and Yeezus (2013).
Notoriously outspoken, Kanye will always be remembered for interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs.
His mother Donda West served as his manager until her death in 2007. He married Kim Kardashian and he has a daughter named North and a son named Saint.
Kanye West turns 40!
Happy Birthday to the megastar!
