It seems like it’s one thing after another with Kanye almost every other day. It’s been a lot of things adding up but one in particular may be one of the biggest reasons why Kanye is having issues. Earlier this year Kanye dropped one of the best albums this year in The Life of Pablo. On one of my personal favorites “Real Friends” Kanye reveals that he had to pay his own cousin $250K just to get back a laptop that had footage of him having sex with another woman. Lawrence Franklin who is relative of Kanye confirmed the story via VladTV.
Franklin gave details saying that laptop was given away as a gift to a family member, but then was loaned to another family member back in 2012. After that the relative tried to blackmail Kanye into paying him a huge chunk of money. The incident caused Kanye to not trust many people including his own family saying the sex tape started his decline.
Having a family member extorting you for money can definitely cause trust issues for anybody. I just hope that Kanye can bounce back and continue to give us great music. Despite whatever he’s going through he’s still one of the best to touch the mic.
