Kanye West’s hair is pretty innocuous, but have you ever stopped to notice that day in and day out, West’s hair always looks exactly, almost freakishly, the same? No, I haven’t either, but anyway there’s a reason why. The presidential hopeful gets his hair cut every single day for the tidy (get it?) sum of $500. That’s $182,500 a year. That. Shit. Cray.
This groundbreaking, life-changing information comes courtesy of Ronald Fenty. Name doesn’t ring a bell? That’s Rihanna’s dad, who discovered this obscene figure while on tour with his daughter and Ye back in 2010.
So who is the fellow trusted to be near Kanye West’s head holding sharp objects? That’s Ibn Jasper, who’s been on the payroll as West’s barber for about two decades. West plucked Jasper from his shop in Chicago. These days the barber lives in the rapper’s West Hollywood home.
I guess it should come as no surprise that the same dude who’s hawking tattered sweatshirts for $2,600 is spending $500 a day on haircuts. Still, this makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit.
