Rapper crash: CNN report: Kanye West is said to have been a Hitler fan and almost named an album after him

Kanye West was one of the greatest rappers of all time - now his career is in tatters. After anti-Semitic statements, Adidas ended its partnership with him, the 45-year-old has lost billions in the past few months and, according to "Forbes", is officially no longer a billionaire according to the latest developments. In addition, more and more shocking details about him are coming to light.

Kanye West is said to have been a big fan of Adolf Hitler for a long time. This is reported by CNN, citing several sources who, according to the broadcaster, have been close to West in the past. "He praised Hitler by saying how incredible it was that he was able to amass so much power and talked about all the great things he and the Nazi Party had achieved for the German people," the rapper's former collaborator is quoted as saying .

West was downright "obsessed" with Hitler. This also creates a "hostile" work environment, the source accuses the rapper, who now goes by the name Ye. He repeatedly expressed his "admiration" for the Nazi dictator and spoke about his autobiography "Mein Kampf". However, the man did not want to be named because he had signed a non-disclosure agreement and also feared "revenge" from the rapper.

West's fascination with Hitler allegedly went so far that he wanted to name an album after him, reports CNN, citing four sources. That didn't happen after all: Kanye West's 2018 album was ultimately titled "Ye". A former reporter for the tabloid website TMZ told CNN that West made similar comments in an interview that year that were not published: "He said something like, 'I love Hitler, I love the Nazis.'" But also without these statements, the interview caused a stir - West had described slavery as "his own choice".

Kanye West has always been known for scandals, controversial statements and extravagant actions, but has made some extreme failures in recent weeks. Among other things, he wore a T-shirt with the racism slogan "White Lives Matter" at Paris Fashion Week. In a podcast, West doubted that George Floyd really died as a result of police violence. Most recently, he apparently called for the killing of Jews on the Internet. As a result, numerous sponsors and partners separated from the rapper.
