Kanye West is known to walk the line between being famous and infamous due to both his achievements and reputation for controversial actions or crazy statements.

He’s a trending celebrity who’s constantly in the limelight and considered one of the best-selling male artists of all time. The rapper has definitely built a brand name for himself, though not one that is squeaky clean and spotless.

From ranting about the President (then supporting another) to storming the MTV VMAs stage, we rank Kanye West’s controversies from least to most shocking…

47. Kanye and Kim Cover Vogue

March 2014

It’s not everyday you see a former adult-tape star and controversial rapper gracing the cover of Vogue, is it? The fashion world had a mini breakdown when they saw Kanye West and Kim Kardashian appearing on the cover of Vogue magazine in 2014.

This is marked as one of Kim’s controversial moments and possibly the beginning of Kanye’s attempt at ruling the high fashion world. Despite the backlash, it’s safe to say the duo looked great. If editor-in-chief Anna Wintour didn’t have a problem with it, then why should we, right?

46. Kanye Rumored to Cheat on Kim with Jeffree Star

January 2021

2021 was welcomed with a bunch of Kimye rumors that the world just couldn’t shake off. First, we heard that he and Kim were getting a divorce after six years of marriage, and then it was said that the breakup was due to a cheating scandal – on Ye’s behalf! TikTok user, Ava Louise triggered a rumor that Kanye was dating YouTuber, Jeffree Star during his relationship with Kim.

When asked by YouTube drama personality Daniel “Keemstar” Keem about the truth, Jeffrey Star replied, “Hahaha” and “I’m having the best time in Wyoming, come visit sometime!” – alluding to the fact that Kanye has been staying in Wyoming the past few months. It also didn’t help when Star deleted a tweet from 2011 replying to Kanye that said “last night was so fun! xoxo.”

Nevertheless, the shocking claims were put to bed when Star finally denied the rumors on YouTube saying, “I’m single. I’m not sleeping with anyone,” Star said. “I like very tall men. Me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny … How did we even get to this moment? How would that even be made up? Because we both live in the same state?”

October 2021

Most stars let their stage names remain stage names, but that’s not the case for Kanye. Indeed, the trending star has decided to change his legal name to “Ye”. After making the request in August, a judge approved for Kanye Omari West to formally be referred to as just Ye in October 2021.

While Kanye cited “personal reasons” for this shocking decision, he stated in the past in a radio interview, “I believe ‘ye’ is the most commonly used word in the Bible, and in the Bible it means you. So I’m you, I’m us, it’s us.” 

44. Kanye Jokes About Queen Elizabeth’s Death

September 2022

Kanye took his ‘jokes’ to new (awkward) heights in the autumn of 2022. Following Queen Elizabeth’s death in the U.K., the rapper took to his Instagram story to write, “London I know how you feel. I lost my queen too,” alluding to his divorce with Kim Kardashian. It’s getting clearer by the day that Kanye has no shame…

43. Kanye Wears Bedazzled Flip-Flops 

September 2022

There’s fashion…and then there’s this. It was made pretty obvious that the musician’s taste was outta whack when he attended the Burberry fashion show in London wearing bedazzled flip-flops…with socks. Let’s just say his footwear fashion has seriously become questionable…

42. Kanye Causes a Stir with ‘Eazy’ Lyrics

January 2022

Things haven’t been pretty between Kanye and his ex-wife Kim since their split. After finding out that Kim was dating Pete Davidson, the artist decided to comment on their relationship through a diss track titled Eazy. He rapped, “God saved me from that crash just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”

That’s not all. Yeezy also threw shade at his ex-wife’s parenting skills by rapping, “I got love for the nannies, but real family is better.” It seems the star isn’t a fan of having “nannies” watch over his four children.

41. Kanye Brings Up Kim’s Tape

January 2022

Ye clearly has a thing for embarrassing his ex-wife. Following his divorce from Kim, the rapper made some claims about her controversial tape with Ray-J. Although this is something the socialite has been trying to shake off from her image, Ye went ahead and fanned the flames by revealing that there was actually a second tape of Kim Kardashian and Ray J and that he was the one to stop it from leaking.

Telling Hollywood Unlocked, Kanye said that he retrieved the tape from Ray-J’s laptop, to which Kim was extremely relieved and even broke down in tears. “She cried when she saw it. You know why she cried when she seen it on the laptop? Because it represents how much she’s been used,” the rapper said. “It represents how much people didn’t love her, and they just saw her as a commodity.”

Kim’s spokespeople denied there was ever a second tape. #AWKS

40. Kanye Fights with Kid Cudi

February 2022

Ye got upset with his “friend” and fellow rapper Kid Cudi over the Mr. Rager artist’s apparent friendship with Pete Davidson (who is dating West’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian). Shamelessly taking to Instagram, Ye wrote (and since deleted) that Cudi “will not be on Donda because he’s friends with you know who…”

Cudi responded to the news that he would be removed from Ye’s new album by commenting, “Too bad I don’t wanna be on ur album u fu**in dinosaur hahaha 🤣.”  He later added on Twitter,
