Kanye West


Kanye West is one of the wildest wordsmiths of our day, and it doesn't just show in his lyrics. Whether it's on Twitter or in an interview, Yeezy is not afraid to share his thoughts on what seems like any subject, including money. While the rest of us can't buy groceries until our tax return comes in, Kanye tweeted that gold below today. If he or Puma wants to sprinkle a little bit of those "measly millions" our way, we'd finally be able to pay off our credit card debt and afford the organic raspberries at Trader Joe's. 

Consider it, you guys. Consider it. Anyway, if the tweet above doesn't make you consider moving back in with your parents to cut costs, these other quotes will. We decided to make a roundup of all the cray-mazing shiz Kanye's ever said about money. To be fair and honest, we respect that Kanye worked to build his empire from the ground up. That doesn't mean he hasn't shared some over-the-top opinions about his financial status, however. To each his own, we suppose! 

How about this gem? Rolling Stone noted in an interview with Sway, Kanye dropped the quote below: 

"Me and Kim, we're on our grind, we had to do what we had to get to this point to support our family, but we ain't there yet. We ain't financially there to make sure North is safe at all times. And that's the reason I'm turning it up, right now."

Sweet, innocent Kanye. When was the last damn time you non-ironically had to dine off the dollar menu?  

We don't even own matte nail polish yet because it's more expensive than regular. #Abundance2k16

Like...this is something only normal people can get mad about because for real that 99-cent in-app purchase will actually overdraft our bank account. 

NME notes, Kanye dropped another piece of wood into the fire when he spoke to Q. 

"I just think there's a lot of celebrities that are completely controlled by their finances. You could literally tap them on the wrist and say they lost five dollars and they'll fall to the floor and beg for at least four of the dollars back," Yeezy said. 

Celebrity or not, we'd be on that floor too. 


We'll give this one to Kanye. We would be crying too.
