Kanye West is known for delivering iconic performances on grand-scale stages at festivals, award shows and more. Now that he’s worth well over $1.8 billion according to Forbes, the Grammy award-winning rapper and producer recently said he makes up to seven-figures for every performance he does.
On Tuesday, July 5, Ye reportedly corrected a post made by RapThoughtsDaily on Instagram, who claimed that the rapper made $1 million per show. Ye apparently slid into the blog’s DM and gave a more exact number of how much he makes just to perform.
“Please change this. My performance fee is $8 million,” he said.
