Kanye West Outshines King Tut’s Great-Grandmother

Kanye West

Kanye West visited the golden coffin of King Tut’s great-grandmother Tjuya at the “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs” exhibition at the Discovery Times Square Exposition in New York City. Even the Egyptian pharaoh would have been impressed by the hip-hop king’s flashy Jacob & Co. Horus chain and four-finger pyramid ring, valued at $300,000.

According to Us Weekly, Kanye and girlfriend Amber Rose are taking a break. The model was seen making out with Reggie Bush over the Fourth of July weekend, but insiders say the former couple remains good friends.

The rapper has little time to devote to a relationship while he completes his new album, set to feature a collaboration with hip-hop hottie Nicki Minaj.

    He rocking expensive jewelry up in a museum, whats wrong with that? Most rappers are seen rocking expensive jewelry in some ignorant place. All he did was pose for a picture, while the paparazzi stalked him into the museum, why yall making a big deal out it

    I love kanye but I don’t like the chain reminds me of the 90′s I wish he would just relax n enjoy making music. Maybe he should come back to chicago. We want the old kanye the one who cared about jesus, family, his momma n social issues I miss that kanye.

    @JhuntdaProdigy, The paparazzi did not chase him into a museum. This photo was taken by the people at the exhibition, hence he posed for it. Educate yourself before making foolish comments.

    I want to be rich and wear expensive clothes and go to weird places and look stupid.
    I promise i will forget my actual blessings like my talent and all pain in the world. I will look glamorous after breakfast and travel the world just to take cool pictures.
    People will love me and i will never die!

    I don’t normally comment but people are judging some1 for what he possesses and what he’s potentially able to possess.

    None of which have anything to do with the GOOD music he drops whenever he decides to release albums. (808′s is an acquired taste, not mine, but I know too many people that like that album)

    Again no hate from me just my opinion.
