September 2, 2008: "Kanye West Spends $15K To Get 50 Pairs Of His Favorite Sunglasses Shipped To America"

Kanye West reportedly spent $15,000 getting 50 pairs of his favorite sunglasses shipped to America.

The "Stronger" singer was so desperate to get his hands on the exclusive eyewear that he paid the staggering amount to ensure delivery before the new range was released in the U.S.

A source said: "Kanye loves Carrera sunglasses. He thinks they are trendy and make him look really suave. He was so determined to secure the delivery that he paid the $15,000 bill without even asking for a discount."

Kanye recently announced his fashion company Pastelle is set to team up with Australian label Ksubi to release a new range of sunglasses.

He said: "I love the sunnies Ksubi has produced over the years, and it's an honor to collaborate with them on this first installment of Pastelle frames."

July 8, 2008: "Kanye West Needs Anger Enhancement, Not Anger Management"

Kanye West does not need anger management, he needs "anger enhancement." In a recent post on his website, he denies a tabloid's claims that he needs therapy for his moods.

The rapper superstar has slammed U.K. tabloid The Sun for printing an article that said his management team wants him to enter an anger management class.

The paper quoted a source saying, "Kanye's management team came up with the idea. His mood swings were beginning to play a part in his commercial enterprises as people felt he was miserable all the time. The rapper is in line for deals with two big firms but both have started asking how easy he would be to work with."

But West insists the report is false. He adds that his own blog is his own media outlet so the press can't make up lies about him.

He writes:

"Now the media is saying I'm going to anger management or 'nother. I have never had any conversations about anger management. If anything, I need anger enhancement!! Lol!

"I get off the plane in Hawaii today and the world is saying my management team said blah blah blah... SIIIIIIGGGHHHH! I told the media you can't make up lies about me because I have a media outlet myself. Oh and sidebar I don't know if everyone has realized this yet but I don't do interviews if there's anything I wanna say I'll say right here on my own blog."

July 3, 2008: "Kanye West Stars In New Viral "Infomercial" Campaign By Vodka Brand"

Hip hop star Kanye West has starred in a new viral campaign video by Absolut Vodka that features a drug that transforms consumers into "Kanye."

The minute-long video takes the form of an infomercial wherein the "Stronger" singer sells an Alka-Seltzer-like product called "Be Kanye" that can transform anyone into him physically.

The video can be seen at its own website, bekanyenow.com, which includes warning of potential side effects, product information, and common questions.

According to the website, Be Kanye may cause "awesomeness," "increased appeal," and " heightened sense of style and rhythm."

The vodka brand was very subtly advertised, with only a glass of the vodka visible in the site and a quote that reads, "Ordering Be Kanye was the ABSOLUT best thing I've ever done for myself."

They hit a rough patch and for now theyve split.

Birth name: Kanye Omari West.
Born: June 8, 1977 Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Kanye West biography (bio):
Kanye West was born in Atlanta, Georgia, where he lived with both of his parents. When he was three years old his parents divorced, and he and his mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. Kanye's mother, Dr. Donda West, worked as the Chair of the English Department at Chicago State University before retiring to serve as Kanye's manager. He was raised in an upper middle class background.
After attending The American Academy of Art, a Chicago art school, West attended Columbia College Chicago, but eventually dropped out in order to begin working on his music career. While attending school, West produced for local artists. He later gained fame by producing hit singles for major hip hop/R&B artists, including Jay-Z, Common, The Game, Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson, Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, and John Legend. He also "ghost-produced" for his once mentor Deric Angelettie according to his song "Last Call" and the credits of Nas' "Poppa Was a Playa".
West's style of production often utilizes pitched-up vocal samples, usually from soul songs, with his own drums and instruments. The first major label song he produced featuring vocal samples was "This Can't Be Life", a track from Jay-Z's The Dynasty: Roc La Familia. Kanye admitted that Wu-Tang Clan producer RZA influenced him in his style, and has said on numerous occasions that Wu-Tang rappers Ghostface and Ol' Dirty Bastard were some of his all-time favorites. Said by Kanye West: "Wu-Tang? Me and my friends talk about this all the time We think Wu-Tang had one of the biggest impacts as far as a movement. From slang to style of dress, skits, the samples. Similar to the [production] style I use, RZA has been doing that."
He has also admitted that he sped up the drum beat of Dr. Dre's "Xxplosive" to use as a replacement for his original drums on "This Can't Be Life".

2001:
Kanye's sound was featured heavily on Jay-Z's critically-acclaimed album The Blueprint, released on September 11, 2001. His work was featured on the lead single "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)" and the diss record against Nas and Mobb Deep named "Takeover". Oddly, West has worked with Mobb Deep and Nas since the track's release. Regardless, West soon became a major name in hip hop production following the release of the album, but struggled to find a way to get a record deal. Jay-Z admitted that Roc-A-Fella was initially reluctant to support West as a rapper, claiming that he saw him as a producer first and foremost. Multiple record companies pushed him aside because he was not the stereotypical hip hop artist. Companies felt he was not as marketable as rappers that portray the "street image" that is prominent in hip hop culture.

20022004:
On October 23, 2002, Kanye was involved in a car crash after falling asleep at the wheel while driving home from the recording studio. The crash left his jaw fractured in three places, and he barely survived. Although faced with many adversities and therapy, Kanye was inspired by life itself and what it now had to offer. The crash also provided inspiration for West's first single, "Through the Wire". Following his recovery, Kanye became a born again Christian, crediting Jesus for his quick recovery. West's faith is apparent in many of his songs, such as "Jesus Walks", which became a staple at his benefit performances, such as the Live 8 concert. These songs were featured on West's debut album, The College Dropout, which was released on Roc-A-Fella Records in February 2004, and went on to receive critical acclaim. The album also defined the style for which West would become known, including wordplay and sampling.
Kanye was involved in a financial dispute over Royce Da 5'9"'s song "Heartbeat", produced by West and released on Build & Destroy: The Lost Sessions. Kanye maintains that Royce never paid for the beat, but recorded to it and released it; hearing him on the beat, the original customers decided not to buy it from West. After the disagreement, West vowed to never work with Royce again.

2005:
On August 30, 2005, Kanye West released his second album Late Registration. Reviews were mostly favorable: "Late Registration is an undeniable triumph" (Rolling Stone), "As ornate and bloated as West's ego". (Spin September 2005, p.99). With the help of producer samples in different ways along with compositions of strings and other sounds. The record earned the number one spot on the Village Voice's Pazz & Jop critics poll of 2005. The first two singles from Late Registration were "Diamonds from Sierra Leone" (which features vocals from Shirley Bassey's "Diamonds Are Forever") and "Gold Digger" featuring Jamie Foxx (which contains an interpolation of Ray Charles's "I Got a Woman") to sell over 860,000 copies in its first week, and earned him eight Grammy Award nominations including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for the song "Gold Digger".
In September 2005, West announced that he would release his Pastelle Clothing line in spring 2006: "Now that I have a Grammy under my belt and Late Registration is finished, I am ready to launch my clothing line next spring." Even months after its speculated release, the current status of this project is unknown.

2006:
In January 2006, West again sparked controversy when he appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone in the image of Jesus wearing a crown of thorns. Later that month, he suggested in Playboy that if a bible were written in the present day, he is famous and important enough to be included in it. "I throw up historical subjects in a way that makes kids want to learn about them", West claimed. "[I'm] definitely in the history books already."
In February 2006, West performed live at the 2006 BRIT Awards in London, England. He performed "Gold Digger" with hundreds of professional female dancers, all of them dressed head-to-toe in gold outfits. Four of these were the UK pop rock band RockerBaby.
After the 2006 Grammy nominations were released, West said he would "really have a problem" if he didn't win the Album of the Year because of the comments, saying "I don't care what I do, I don't care how much I stunt you can never take away from the amount of work I put into it. I don't want to hear all of that politically correct stuff." West won several Grammy awards, including Best Rap Album, but did not win the Album of the Year Award. The award instead went to U2's How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. Ironically, in November 2006, West was the opening act for U2 during the fifth leg of their Vertigo Tour in Australia and New Zealand.
On August 5, 2006, West headlined the second day of the Lollapalooza music festival in his hometown of Chicago. Later that month, People magazine reported that West became engaged to his girlfriend Alexis while spending two weeks overseas with her.

On November 2, 2006, when "Touch the Sky" failed to win Best Video at the MTV Europe Music Awards, West went onto the stage as the award was being presented to Justice and Simian for "We Are Your Friends" and argued that he should have won the award instead. Hundreds of news outlets worldwide criticized the outburst. On November 7, 2006, West apologized for this outburst publicly during his performance as support act for U2 for their Vertigo concert in Brisbane, Australia.
In December 2006, Robert "Evel" Knievel sued Kanye West for trademark infringement in West's video for "Touch the Sky". Knievel is taking issue with a "sexually-charged video" in which West takes on the persona of "Evel Kanyevel" and attempts flying a rocket over a canyon. The suit filed in federal court claims infringement on his trademarked name and likeness. Knievel also claims the "vulgar and offensive" images depicted in the video damage his reputation. The suit seeks damages and to stop distribution of the video.
This year he was also rumored to be working on Michael Jackson's next album, scheduled for late 2007, along with his cousin Devo Springsteen and John Legend.

2007:
In 2007, it was announced that West would be starring in a series directed by Larry Charles. He has been working on the pilot episode for the past two years with Larry Charles and Rick Rubin. He also had this to say on January 14: "I wouldn't do something as clich as a reality show. At least give me the credit for being more creative than that. It's a situational half-hour comedy. It's fictional, and loosely based on my life." West recently collaborated with Japanese hip hop group Teriyaki Boyz to produce the single "I Still Love H.E.R.", a reference to Common's 1994 single "I Used to Love H.E.R.". It is rumored that West's introductory lines preceding his verse are a thinly-veiled jab at producer and rapper Danny!, who was mercilessly compared to West in the beginning of his career.
Kanye was slated to appear on Timbaland's solo LP Timbaland Presents Shock Values on a track with Missy Elliott but didn't make the cut.
In the middle of February, Kanye released a remix of Fall Out Boy's hit song "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" from their newly released album Infinity on High. In the remix he congratulates Fall Out Boy for their recently huge success and their #1 hit also adding that he wants the number one spot also ("The Arms Race made them raise their arms and race straight to the top, who knew? Right now they've got the number one spot, do ya want that me too"). It is also rumored that Fall Out Boy will be releasing a remix of one of West's songs off his new album later this year.
Further to this, during a radio appearance in early 2007, West, like many of his peers, recorded an impromptu freestyle to the popular song "Throw Some D's". West's version became extremely popular because of the different stance he took. The song that to all other rappers was about automobile rims, was used by West to comically refer to D-cup breasts. Because of the unexpected success of the song, West went on to make a video for the freestyle, in which he is seen playing his 'Old Ass Cousin'. The video for the remix can be watched here.
Kanye was also featured in a new song called "Classic (Better Than I've Ever Been)". It was believed to be a single from his upcoming album, Graduation, because of him being the main rapper, but Nike quickly explained that it was for the Nike Air Force 1's anniversary. It was meant only to be an exclusive track.
On March 25, 2007, Kanye and his father Ray West supported World Water Day by having a "Walk for Water" rally.
After a two-year break, Kanye has returned back to being a fashion columnist on lifestyle magazine Complex.
On May 30, the release date for West's forthcoming album, Graduation, was pushed up to late August 2007.
On July 7, 2007 West performed with the British band The Police at the American leg of Live Earth to which he received much criticism for his amiss performance
On July 10, 2007 West performed at the Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino in Connecticut where he showcased some of his upcoming CD, Graduation.
