Rodman has frequently visited North Korea over the last few years, and gets on well with its totalitarian leader Kim.
As of the end of June, 57 year old Rodman has made no fewer than five visits to the repressive country in order to meet its dictatorial head of state. According to Rodman’s agent, he and Kim get along extremely well and “both love sports and music”.
The sportsman is set to make another trip to North Korea this September, and according to a report in Us Weekly, he’s planning to ask outspoken rap star Kanye West to come with him.
What a time to be alive!
We reported yesterday that the ever-prodigious Kanye West was teasing the possibility of releasing an album every week for the next year, incredible as that seems. However, one of those seems to be coming together soon, with Chance the Rapper revealing that he’s planning a collaboration album with Yeezy.
The 25 year old rapper was speaking to Complex this week and mentioning that, alongside his collaboration with Kanye, he was also working with Donald Glover – aka Childish Gambino – on another project.
“I've been actively working on the project with Childish. I’m going to do a seven-track with Ye,” Chance told the interviewer. He and Kanye are slated to begin working together in July.
According to journalist Jon Caramanica, Yeezy is planning to stretch his recent hectic release schedule out for an entire year.
It’s been a busy month for Kanye West, rolling out his most recent studio album, a collaboration LP and a number of records he’s produced for others in consecutive weeks. Now, however, there are reports that he’s planning to do the same pattern for a year, releasing “52 albums in 52 weeks”.
The 41 year old megastar told Jon Caramanica in a wide-ranging interview last month, soon after the release of ye, and which the journalist related on his ‘Popcast’ podcast this week that he plans to release a huge number of other projects over the coming months.
“He told me at one point he wants to make 52 records in 52 weeks,” Caramanica said. “Take that for what you will.”

Kanye and his entourage caused quite a bit of disruption at last Friday's listening party in Wyoming.
The Wyoming ranch where Kanye West held a listening party for his brand new album ye last week has announced that they will ban rappers from the property, after the trouble they say was caused by the event.
Jane Golliher, the owner and proprietor of the Diamond Cross Ranch at the Jackson Hole, Wyoming, told The Blast this week that, although the listening party had offered her business a huge shot of exposure and opportunity and that she was grateful for it, the event was the “most confusing” thing that they had ever hosted.
Reportedly, the 40 year old rapper had told Golliher and her husband that he intended to host the listening party inside but, after then changing his mind “every 30 minutes”, ended up throwing it outside. Furthermore, local county bye-laws dictates that any sound played outside after 10pm must not exceed 80 decibels – but Kanye blasted his album at over 120 decibels.
Kim finally spoke about the fall-out from her husband's misguided TMZ interview last month.
The 40 year old rap megastar, who released his brand new album ye at the end of last week, said last month in a controversial interview with TMZ that the centuries-long enslavement of African-Americans was “a choice”.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the CFDA Fashion Awards on Tuesday night (June 5th), 37 year old Kim was asked about the fall-out from that moment, explaining that she was left distressed by her husband’s comments but that they “have different views at times”.

It's difficult to understand how a person can be so obsessed with creativity and finding peace and love, and yet spend most of his life on Twitter. But that's the life of Kanye West, and it's safe to say he has inspired, confused, scared and upset a lot of people along the way.

Donda West's doctor has declined for this reason...
It's been more than ten years since Kanye West lost his mother; a case that caused huge controversy over the suggestion that her plastic surgery was to blame. He's learning a lot about love and forgiveness though, and wants to start by putting the surgeon on the cover of his album. The only problem is, that doctor is done with being blamed.

Dr. Jan Adams has written an open letter to the 40-year-old rapper declining his request to use the surgeon's image on his next album cover.

There are some creative geniuses out there.
It's true that everyone is entitled to their beliefs and opinions. It's true that Kanye West can be both an African-American and a supporter of Donald Trump. But it's also true that their new bromance has become a huge target for the anonymous meme creators of the world - and we're screaming.
Kanye West at the MTV VMAs
We're used to the 40-year-old rapper making controversial comments by now, even with regards to the President. But things came to a head recently when he revealed to the world that he and Trump share 'dragon energy' - whatever that is.
What's going on with this creatively-obsessed superstar?
Eccentricity is one thing, but Kanye West's increasingly erratic behaviour in his day-to-day life as well as social media has allegedly become a genuine concern for his family. He's apparently been fighting with mother-in-law Kris Jenner, and wife Kim Kardashian is almost at the end of her tether.

Kanye now has neither a manager nor a legal team as he prepares to roll out five albums in June.

TMZ reported on Tuesday (April 24th) that Kanye had amicably broken off his two-year working relationship with Scooter Braun, who also manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. It comes as part of a wider re-arrangement of his management team, with the rapper asking his core team – including attorney Peter Paterno – to bring all services in-house to his Yeezy organisation.
Braun turned the offer down, although this hasn’t precluded the possibility of Kanye and Braun’s companies working together on future projects. “They parted on good terms,” a source told Variety.

The rapper Tweeted a series of video clips from a video on Facebook entitled 'Scott Adams tells you how Kanye showed the way to The Golden Age. With coffee'.

Kanye explained what his recent return to Twitter is really all about.
Kanye West has revealed what’s behind his recent comeback to Twitter after an absence of nearly a year – he’s publishing a philosophy book in “real time” via the social media platform.
The 40 year old rap megastar returned to Twitter last week after an hiatus of around 11 months. Since then, Twitter has of course changed to a 280-character limit, meaning we’re now getting twice the insight and bizarreness as we used to. In the last few days, he’s been publishing a series of motivational homilies to his followers.
“As a creative your ideas are your strongest form of currency,” read one of his tweets. “Try to avoid any contractual situation where you are held back from your ideas,” he wrote in another, in a series appearing to be aimed at creatives.

He had managed Kanye’s career since 2010, around the time of his career revitalisation with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Zivkovic’s company, Split Second Management, also looks after the likes of Jack Garratt, Arcade Fire and Banks.

Another clothing brand is alleging that Yeezy Apparel stole their camouflage print design for its Season 5 collection.
Kanye West’s clothing company Yeezy is facing a legal battle after another business filed a lawsuit alleging that the rapper’s fashion line used their camouflage design without their permission.
According to reports by TMZ, Jordan Outdoor Enterprises filed a lawsuit at a federal court in Georgia against Kanye’s label Yeezy Apparel on Thursday (March 15th), arguing that the Yeezy camouflage print is an unauthorised copy of their own Realtree collection and an infringement of their copyright. Yeezy used it as part of their Season 5 collection of hoodies, cargo pants, bomber jackets and boots.
NBA star LeBron James is under the microscope as well, as his Miami-based fashion line Unknwn is also being named in the lawsuit for similar alleged copyright theft for selling the Yeezy items.
