Kanye West on $68 Million Tax Refund: “God Is Showing Out”
Kanye West’s attributing some recent financial good fortune to the man above.
In a Tuesday (Oct. 29) airplane edition of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke—aptly titled Airpool Karaoke for this episode—the Grammy Award-winning rapper-producer bragged that since his spiritual awakening, he’s seen an abundance of financial wealth.
“He’s using me to show off,” he said. “Last year I made $115 million and still ended up $35 million in debt. This year I looked up and I just got $68 million returned to me on my tax returns.”
Corden then asked ‘Ye, “So you think your spiritual awakening is part of…”
“My success. Absolutely,” Kanye responds cutting him off. “He’s showing off. He’s just showing out. Yeezy is worth $3 billion. It’s the number one Google search brand in the world. He’s showing out.”
“Kanye West works for God,” he concluded.
Some people might find Kanye’s comments not too far-fetched.
According to Forbes, ‘Ye earned $150 million within the past year thanks to his Yeezy sneaker empire for Adidas, which is reportedly expected to reach $1.5 billion this year.
Kanye could earn more money when he embarks on his Jesus Is King Tour. Although he didn’t give a specific date on when the trek will launch, he did tell TMZ that the tour is coming soon.
