Popular rapper, Kanye West is allegedly retiring from professional music.

His retirement plans were recently revealed in an alleged text message exchange with rapper, Rich The Kid, and fans have been reacting.

Rich The Kid simply uploaded a screenshot to his Instagram Story of messages he’d received from an iPhone contact under the name “Ye”, which is Kanye’s name.

It read, “I’m retiring from professional music. Not sure what else to do.”

Rich replied, “Retire? Why ? How ? The [people] NEED you the music you & Ty & we have made was the BIGGEST STAMP in culture to this date In 2024.”


Kanye West is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, composer, entrepreneur and fashion designer. His music draws from a range of genres, including hip hop, soul, baroque pop, electro, indie rock, synth-pop, industrial and gospel.

After his parents divorced when he was three years old, he moved with his mother to Chicago, Illinois.

His father, Ray West, is a former Black Panther and was one of the first black photojournalists at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Ray West was later a Christian counselor, and in 2006, opened the Good Water Store and Café in Lexington Park, Maryland with startup capital from his son.

West’s mother, Dr. Donda C. (Williams) West, was a professor of English at Clark Atlanta University, and the Chair of the English Department at Chicago State University, before retiring to serve as his manager. West was raised in a middle-class background, attending Polaris High School in suburban Oak Lawn, Illinois, after living in Chicago.
