Kanye West

Born – June 8, 1977
Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.

Rapper, clothing designer, microphone grabber.

Only rapper to be labeled a “Jackass” by the President of the United States …something ALL Americans can get behind.

Best friends with Jay Z … released an album together called “Watch the Throne,” which may or may not be about a toilet.

Said “George Bush doesn't care about black people” while appearing alongside Mike Myers at a benefit for Hurricane Katrina, which was still funnier than anything Mike Myers said.

Performed at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards, lost in every category he was nominated for, wasn't too happy about it.

Grabbed a microphone from Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Music Awards, told her she didn't deserve the award for "Best Female Video" as much as Beyonce. The incident sparked an outcry from the public and a deluge of unfunny jokes and parodies on the internet.

Dated Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian, wrote a diss track about Kim Kardashian's ex-husband Kris Humphries, who may not have heard it because he was distracted by some clouds.

Fun Fact: Sometimes dresses like a filthy homeless dude even though he's a millionaire many many times over.
