After an eventful 2021, looks like Kanye West is willing to explore new shores. It is being reported that the acclaimed hip-hop artist is planning to head to Russia where he hopes to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin. He will apparently also hold his Sunday Service choir that he first started in 2019. Kanye, who now simply goes by the name 'Ye', will apparently be heading to Russia for business-related matters.
 
According to Billboard, the 44-year-old rapper’s “confidant and strategic advisor” Ameer Sudan spilled the beans on the proposed trip claiming that the rapper “will be spending a lot of time out there” and wants to make the country his “second home.” However, as soon as the news exploded on the Internet, Kanye’s PR rep told Rolling Stone that the story was “entirely fabricated” dubbing it as a “work of fiction or wishful thinking from these Russian people.” So, is Kanye moving to Russia or not? Well, read on to know the entire scoop.

Is Kanye West moving to Russia?

Kanye West is well-known for his political ambitions and his close ties with former POTUS Donald Trump. Therefore, it won’t be a surprise if the Grammy-winning artist actually ends up in Russia and tries to meet President Putin. According to Billboard, Sudan stated that he was coordinating the trip with Scott Balber, a lawyer who represents billionaire developer Aras Agalarov. Kanye is reportedly trying to lock deals with Agalarov that will help him increase his net worth.
 
For the unversed, Aras Agalarov has close ties with Trump. The two bonded over the Miss Universe competition in Moscow back in 2013. Also, it is not clear why Kanye wants to meet President Putin. The ‘Donda’ hitmaker has so far not commented anything on the rumors. If all goes right and if the rumors are true, this will be the very first time when Kanye will get to organize his Sunday Service in Russia. Interestingly, during an interview on Drink Champs in November, the rapper had dubbed himself “Young Putin”.

‘Kanye going to meet with Putin is a f**king joke’

Social media users quickly took to Twitter as one of the users said, “Checked Russian news and did not expect to see an article on Kanye planning to travel to Russia, make Russia his 2nd home, and his desire to meet Putin. Smh.” Another stated, “Makes total sense as he plans to run for pres again. Also reminding ppl, esp all of those bitcoin bros, that their idol Elon Musk backed Kanye when he ran. Elon also announced a mtg w Putin awhile ago (I believe he supposedly postponed it or something). Also linked to Peter Thiel.” One user added, “Trump's suit won't fit, but Putin would surely buy Kanye a new one.”
 
The next one shared, “Homie would rather go live in a frozen depressing half-dictatorship than deal with a breakup properly.” Another posted, “Kanye better with foreign affairs than the president.” Whereas, one tweeted, “This man is predictably unpredictable.” The next one added, “Because he knows tickets won’t sellout there…no one knows him.” And, another concluded, “I found something that the left and the right agree on!! Finally!! EVERYONE agrees that Kanye going to meet with Putin is a f**king joke, mistake, whatever you wanna call it. wtf y’all? I can’t believe we are here to see this special time in history.”
