Rumors are swirling that Kanye West is considering leaving the music industry to focus on fashion. A source told Page Six: "After his next [collaboration] with Paul McCartney comes out, he’s going to step away from music and concentrate on clothing."
Kanye allegedly received a $15 million signing bonus for his upcoming adidas collaboration, but the source added that "his line has been pushed back four times because he hasn’t had enough time to work on it." While any of this news has yet to be confirmed, it wouldn't be a surprise if the rapper really spent more time working on design. Kanye is a known fashion-obsessive who has worked with brands, like Nike and A.P.C., interned with Fendi, and released a full womenswear collection in 2011. Just this past October, photos of Kanye working on clothing at his home surfaced online.
It's hard to tell how much truth is in this news, what with only one source being cited by Page Six. All we know is, this is us right now:
