Ye reportedly asked for $1 million for his song to be used in the new series ‘Lockwood & Co’. It’s a detective thriller series by Joe Cornish, who wanted to use the track ‘Kids See Ghosts’ by Ye in the show.
“But then we tried to clear it and Kanye asked for something like a million dollars – and we had to re-up it every year or something,” Cornish claimed. He also added that apart from this fee, the rapper’s recent image also meant that “maybe that wouldn’t be such a good shout” regardless.
The synopsis for the series reads: “In London, where the most gifted teenage ghost-hunters venture nightly into perilous combat with deadly spirits, amidst the many corporate, adult-run agencies, one stands alone: independent of any commercial imperative or adult supervision – a tiny startup, run by two teenage boys and a newly arrived, supremely psychically gifted girl, a renegade trio destined to unravel a mystery that will change the course of history: Lockwood & Co.”
In other news, Ye is planning a trip with his wife Bianca Censori to Australia. She is apparently a Yeezy employee he married in an unofficial ceremony earlier this month. However, the chairman of the Jewish-Australian community organisation, the Anti-Defamation Commission has asked for West to be denied entry to Australia because of his antisemitic remarks.
Ye got into a lot of trouble for his antisemitic remarks last year. Adidas ended its Yeezy partnership, calling his actions “unacceptable, hateful and dangerous.”
