(AllHipHop News) 2013 proved to be one of the most difficult for Kanye West in terms of public relations management. From paparazzi attacks to numerous inflammatory rants at talk show host and Nike representatives, Kanye West has been polarizing to say the least. To culminate his arduous 2013, two things have happened that sum up Kanye West’s 2013 pretty succinctly: Google is selling Yeezus for free and Kim Kardashian and Kanye were named the worst neighbors of 2013.
After Yeezus’ first week sales were more than 100,000 copies lower than Kanye’s previous 1st week low (College Dropout/441k), Google Play , Google’s music store, is now selling the album for free. As apart of its holiday promotion it is also selling Drake’s single “Started From The Bottom” for free and Danny Brown’s Old album for a discounted price of $3.99.
Kanye West might make an affordable late Christmas present, however according to a recent survey, him and his wife do not make the best neighbors. For the seventh annual Zillow® Celebrity Neighbor Survey, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were deemed the worst neighbors to leave near in 2013. Over 1,000 randomly-selected adults aged 18 and over residing in the United States were asked which celebrities they would want to live near and which they would not. After praising their winner for most desirable neighbor for 2014, Jimmy Fallon, Zillow gave their reasoning for why people would be adverse to living near Hip Hop’s power couple:
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, on the other hand, have a reputation for living an over-the-top lifestyle, with drama and the paparazzi never too far behind. No one wants to live next door to a family who has cameras following them everywhere and seems to seek out as much attention as possible. However, with more than one-third of surveyed Americans preferring a non-celebrity neighbor, what remains clear is that many people don’t want to live next to any celebrity, regardless of why they are famous
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were also tied with Lebron James for least desirable neighbors for 2014.
