Kanye West is extremely focused on his art and is already very, very rich. How else to explain why Yeezy passed on a $4.5 million residency in Las Vegas?
Kanye West turned down an offer that could have made him the highest paid entertainer on the Las Vegas Strip … making Celine, Britney and J-Lo look like casino lounge acts.
TMZ has learned the offer would have lined his pocket to the tune of $4.5 MILLION … for just 9 days of work. Yet we’re told he walked away from it!
According to the written offer — obtained by TMZ — Yeezus would have performed 3 shows a week for 3 weeks at the Axis at Planet Hollywood. For that he would have scored a whopping $500,000 per show.
Yeezus Christ that’s a lot of dough.
Meanwhile, West is working on his new album.
