It’s been about a year since Kanye West wrapped up his critically-acclaimed Yeezus tour, and today the rapper made it clear that he has no plans of returning to the big stage any time soon- no matter the profit.
For reasons not yet specified, Mr. West recently turned down an offer than would have instantly made him the highest-paid performer in Las Vegas. This news comes via TMZ, who obtained a written copy of the massive offer. The $4.5 million proposal included Kanye performing three nights a week for three weeks, a deal that would have earned him 500k per show.
The concerts would have taken place at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood’s Resort & Casino, where Britney Spears’ “Piece of Me” act currently takes place. The 7,000 seat theater includes over 2,000 square feet of high-definition LED walls, which would have been a perfect addition to the already cinematic Yeezus experience.
At a reported net-worth of over $100 million, money is the last of Yeezy’s concerns. The rapper is currently busy prepping his seventh solo studio album, which is expected to release via Def Jam sometime in the near future.
