Kanye West Calls Dennis Rodman ‘One of His Biggest Inspirations’

Kanye West has expressed his admiration for free thinkers including Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, and now Dennis Rodman.

Taking to Twitter, Ye shared his appreciation for the NBA Hall of Famer, posting a photo of his autographed Chicago Bulls jersey. “To Kanye. Bull. 4. Life!” Rodman wrote on the back.

A grateful Kanye praised his idol, tweeting, “Thank to one of my biggest inspirations … always breaking barriers with independent thought.”

Not only do the two both hail from Chicago, but they share a love for Donald Trump. Last month, Rodman was in attendance during Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s Singapore summit, while West sparked controversy after proclaiming his love for Trump and wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap.

Kanye, who executive produced albums from Pusha-T, Nas, Kid Cudi, Teyana Taylor, and his own ye, is now reportedly working on a 7-track joint project with Chance the Rapper. He also recently revealed his desire to record 52 albums in 52 weeks.
