Kanye West now Ye is planning to extend his empire beyond the United States and he’s eyeing Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Billboard reports that Kanye is planning a business trip to Moscow and he wants to meet with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. Kanye indeed has big balls.
Ye is planning a trip to Moscow sometime this year and wants to meet with President Vladimir Putin. Per Ameer Sudan, who is identified as Ye’s confidant and strategic advisor, the visit would happen in Spring or Summer, depending on the rapper’s schedule.
The “Praise God” rapper hopes to make Russia “a second home,” says Sudan. “He will be spending a lot of time out there.” Sudan is working with US attorney Scott Balber of Herbert Smith Freehills to make the trip come to life.
Sudan and Balber are liaisons between Ye and Azerbaijani-Russian billionaire Aras Agalarov, with whom the rapper plans to work. When in Russia, the Yeezy founder plans to host the country’s first Sunday Service and expand his business.
Although details of Ye’s partnership with Agalarov aren’t open to the public, it is estimated to increase Ye’s net worth to more than $10 billion. The 44-year-old is currently worth about $6.6 billion, according to Bloomberg.
I wish Kanye West well as he embarks on a wild business journey to Russia and to meet Putin.
