Kanye West may soon be ready to call it quits with his rap career, according to a source who spoke with Page Six recently. Page Six reports that ‘Ye is considering retiring from music to focus on a career in fashion.
The source revealed that due to Kanye’s lack of time for projects outside of music, his upcoming line with adidas has already been pushed back four times.
“After his next [collaboration] with Paul McCartney comes out, he’s going to step away from music and concentrate on clothing…He got a $15 million signing bonus from Adidas, but his line has been pushed back four times because he hasn’t had enough time to work on it,” a source said while speaking with Page Six.
Over the past few years, the Chicago, Illinois lyricist has worked with a number of brands including Nike, Louis Vuitton, BAPE, and Giuseppe Zanotti. Most recently, Kanye entered into a partnership with adidas to collaborate on a clothing line and a new sneaker.
Despite news of Kanye’s possible retirement, the official Twitter account for Roc Nation has confirmed that the rapper will go on tour in 2015.
