DJ Khaled Explains Why Kanye West Was Wearing His Wedding Ring In Recent Instagram Post

DJ Khaled clears the air about his recent post with Kanye West.

DJ Khaled’s star-studded Khaled Khaled album featuring JAY-Z, Nas, Justin Timberlake, H.E.R., Cardi B, Migos, Megan Thee Stallion, and more has the streets talking.

But another thing fans were talking about was Kanye West wearing his wedding ring and a picture that Khaled posted on Instagram.

In the black and white photo Kanye has his hand in the air and his ring is spotted on his left hand. Fans quickly began to speculate because he’s in the middle of a divorce with Kim Kardashian.

During a conversation with Entertainment Tonight DJ Khaled offered an explanation. 

“First of all, God bless him and his family, remember this was a while ago, and when I say a while ago, like, when I was first starting to create my album,” he said. “And I was just playing him song ideas I had so this was long, not too long ago, this was like way before, you know, all that and I want to send my love to him and his family and his kids, you know what I mean? God bless him and his whole family, you know?”

Aside from offering a reasonable explanation without telling too much DJ Khaled explained how his time with Kanye West went.

“One of my team members knocked on the door, ‘Yo, Khaled, Mr. West is in your backyard,’ so I go to my backyard and he’s eating scrambled eggs with ketchup because he asked my chef to make them and some vegan bacon,” said Khaled.

“And we was just kicking it, catching a vibe, and catching up and he gave me a surprise visit. We ended up going into my studio of my house and we just ended up playing each other music,” he continued. “And there was just a vibe, you know what I’m saying? It was just a vibe and, like, you know, I was grateful to have a great conversation with him but at the same time hear some of his music, and he heard some of my music.”

Did you get a chance to listen to Khaled Khaled over the weekend. What are your thoughts?

Kanye West Spotted Wearing His Wedding Ring Amid Divorce From Kim Kardashian

Kanye West

Kanye West was spotted rocking his wedding ring but what does that mean?

As you may already know, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West earlier this year.

But the picture DJ Khaled post of Ye visiting him on Wednesday afternoon raised an eyebrow.

Khaled posted a black-and-white picture of The Life of Pablo rapper visiting him, and it looks like he’s feeling the vibe of the upcoming highly-anticipated Khaled Khaled album. But he’s still wearing his wedding ring despite his separation from the reality star and pending divorce.

“TRUE STORY: KANYE STOPPED BY MY HOUSE AT 8 AM THE OTHER DAY! I DIDNT KNOW HE WAS COMING!” Khaled wrote. “HE HAD @chefmelissazuniga make him SOME EGGS WITH KETCHUP AND VEGAN BACON. And we listened to #KHALEDKHALED. You know when you get this expression that it’s sounding AMAZING! this album GODS HANDS IS ALL OVER IT.”

The purpose of the post was to promote Khaled’s album, but fans couldn’t help but notice Kanye West wearing his wedding ring and began speculating.

What are your thoughts?

For more than a year prior to the reveal, rumors swirled that a Kanye sneaker was in development. In one of the most brilliant and hyped reveals in sneaker history, Nike and Kanye revealed during the rapper’s 2008 Grammy’s performance a pair of sneakers that even top aficionados could not identify – the only clue was a Swoosh. The sneaker world erupted in a frenzy, as blogs and social media lit up across a community eager to learn about the new design.

The Kanye West and Mark Smith designed samples were built in Nike’s lab – known as the ‘Innovation Kitchen’ – at the company’s headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon in 2007. The size 12 shoe is made of soft black leather with perforated detailing throughout the upper and the heel overlay is branded with a tonal Swoosh. The design features the iconic Yeezy forefoot strap and signature ‘Y’ medallion lace locks in bright pink. A custom lasered wooden box is included, which features a design and etching by the Yeezy 1 creator, Mark Smith.

Kanye West has yet to comment on the auction.

Elon Musk Announces Kanye West Will Be Joining Clubhouse

Elon Musk Announces Kanye West Will Be Joining Clubhouse

Source: Kevin Mazur / Getty

Kanye West rants are coming to a Clubhouse chatroom very soon.

West’s buddy, billionaire Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he and “Jesus Walks” crafter would be making their way to the invite-only app. “Just agreed to do Clubhouse with @kanyewest,” tweeted the luxury electric car dealer. He further added, “The most entertaining outcome is the most likely.”

We bet.

While Musk has been active on social media recently giving his two cents on the recent Gamestop stock/Robinhood fiasco, most recently announcing he “Bought some Dogecoin for lil X, so he can be a toddler holder.” Ye, on the other hand, has been noticeably silent. The Chicago-born rapper/failed presidential candidate hasn’t tweeted since election day, where he flopped hard.

While the thought of West using Clubhouse to spew his “freethinking” nonsense is exhausting, we already anticipate that his presence on Clubhouse will not only shut down the chatroom but the app itself. We are intrigued to see what both Musk and West will talk about in the room, but you can be on West going FULL KANYE when the moment presents itself.

Who knows, maybe he will talk about his failed bid for the White House, his rumored divorce, which will allegedly play out on the news season of Keeping up With The Kardashians, some new YEEZY sneakers, or maybe, just maybe some new sneakers. We know whatever Kanye West decides to break his silence for will be trending on Twitter instantly, and we will be here to report on the ridiculousness.

Funk Flex Says His Lipo Surgery Was Inspired By Kanye West, Drake & LL Cool J

q

Back in November 2020, Funk Flex took to his Instagram to not only share that he had liposuction surgery but revealed footage of the procedure. Many ridiculed the legendary DJ for his TMI-like post.

Flex’s recently stopped by Gilli Da Kid and Wallo’s Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast. During the conversation, Flex discussed his surgery saying that he needed to first get to 290 pounds. After doing so, there were other areas that needed work.

He stated that his comfortability lied within the recommendation by professional athletes. Body transformation procedures are typically associated with women. Therefore, he quickly became a trending joke.

“I went public with it just because I thought everyone did,” Flex started. “Now, I can’t say I seen, but I can say, you know, I did, to my knowledge, Drake and Kanye and LL (Cool J) and people like that, that’s what they were doing,” Flex added. “When I called and I got in touch with the guy who did it for me, I was recommended because current football players and current boxers go to him.”

Back in 2018, Kanye West did confirm his liposuction surgery. After seeing the public ridicule his brother-in-law, Rob Kardashian received after weight gain, Ye wanted to avoid any more scrutiny.

Funk Flex’s appearance on Gilli and Wallo’s podcast has trended over the past few weeks. The Hot 97 DJ stated Drake is a better rapper than Jay-Z. Flex’s statement sparked an intense debate amongst Hip-Hop lovers of all ages. Both Gilli and Wallo were taken back by the statement.
