American rapper Kanye West is reportedly arranging a visit to Moscow in order to meet the Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The American producer West, who recently legally changed his name to Ye, is scheduled to host one of his Sunday Service performances in Russia. He is also seeking to extend his business venture in the country with Aras Agalarov and his son Emin Agalarov.
Aras Agalarov is a 66-year-old Azerbaijani-Russian billionaire real estate developer. He is one of the Russian “oligarchs” named in the CAATSA, signed by former President Donald Trump.
Ameer Sudan, Ye’s strategic advisor, is assisting Ye in planning his trip and mentioned Russia as a future “second home” for the 44-year-old rapper. “He will be spending a lot of time out there,” said Sudan in an interview.
The Sunday Service performances will be Ye’s first performances in the Russian territory. It will most likely be held in one of the massive Moscow venues.
Putin has been sent an invitation as a special guest to the shows. Sudan also disclosed that the star has been desiring to host shows in Russia and meet the president in person for a while now.
At the same time, Netflix has revealed that there will be a documentary about the music star. The documentary is titled “Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy,” it follows a young Ye in 2002 troubled about Rhymefest doubting his self-proclaimed genius status, hence the title.
The movie is directed by Coodie and Chike, who are behind most of Ye’s music videos, “Jesus Walks” and “Through the Wire,” for example.
The streaming platform behemoth has dubbed the film as a “once in a lifetime three-week global event.” It will entirely show the rapper’s controversial career. The first part of the series will be released on February 10. It contains unseen clips of Ye’s performance in the studio.
