American rapper turned designer, Kanye West, has over the past few years drawn world attention for several reasons, mostly controversial. He has now done it again.
This time for a reason not quite controversial; it’s actually something Kanye and his lovely equally controversial wife, Kim Kardashian West can be proud of – he broke a record previously held by Pope Francis.
According to TMZ, Kanye hawked $780,000 in Yeezy merchandise at his Madison Square Garden show on Monday night to beat Pope Francis’ previous record by $240k.
Pope Francis held the record when he sold $540,000 in Pope-laced gear a year ago at the same venue, but Kanye’s Saint Pablo Tour crowd proved faster and loose with their wallets.
