Kanye West claims he was 2 months from bankruptcy after being ‘canceled’ for antisemitic rants



Kanye West claimed he was two months from declaring bankruptcy after he was “canceled” for his antisemitic remarks.

The “Heartless” rapper raved to TMZ about the success of his new album, “Vultures,” and his Yeezy Super Bowl commercial — over a year after being dropped by multiple brands for his controversial rhetoric.

“Number one all over the world,” West told the outlet Monday at LAX Airport after returning from the big game in Las Vegas.

“I’ma just be honest with y’all. I was two months from going bankrupt, and I put everything I had into it,” he continued.

“We moved to Italy. We moved to the factories, and we survived. We survived through the cancellation. We’re back No. 1.”

The 24-time Grammy winner, 46, went on to credit his “various skill sets” for his ability to overcome the backlash.

“If I didn’t have the various skill sets of music and clothing and the fanbase, they would have been able to destroy me,” he said.

“But because we had all those skill sets, somehow I’m here inside of this universe able to fight.”

When asked if he regretted his past antisemitic comments, West refused to express remorse.

“They got the right to their opinion — I got the right to my opinion,” he said.

“We moved to Italy. We moved to the factories, and we survived. We survived through the cancellation. We’re back No. 1,” he added. AP

Last week, the “All Falls Down” rapper came under fire yet again for referring to himself as an “antisemite” on his new album, “Vultures.”

The livestream for his listening party was temporarily disabled after West — who was wearing a Jason Voorhees mask — debuted the track for the packed audience at the United Center in Chicago.

“And I’m still crazy, bipolar, antisemite / And I’m still the king,” he rapped on the song.
