International hip hop star Kanye West, also known as “Yeezy, “will put on his first ever performance in Israel on September 30, 2015 at Ramat Gan Stadium in Tel Aviv.

After achieving success as a producer and songwriter for mega-artists such as Jay Z, Alicia Keys, West burst onto the scene in 2003 with his debut album College Dropout, which contained hits like “Through the wire,” “Jesus walks” and chart-topper “Slow Jamz,” and eventually went triple platinum and won the Grammy award for Best Rap Album. From there on, West never looked back churning out 5 consecutive albums that reached #1 in the US and sold over a million copies, including his most recent release Yeezus, and numerous #1 singles, including “Gold digger,” “Stronger,” “Heartless” and “Niggas in Paris,” to name a few.

Along the way, he’s been no stranger to controversy, saying that former US president George W. Bush “doesn’t care about black people” in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, crashing Taylor Swift’s award acceptance speech and at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards to proclaim that Beyonce should have gotten the award and, perhaps most memorably, claiming that President Barrack Obama couldn’t execute his plans because “Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people…We ain’t Jewish. We don’t got family that got money like that.” To be fair, he also cited oil people as an example of others who have more connections than black people.

West is also married to reality television star Kim Kardashian, and the two made waves in Israel in April when they visited and had their daughter baptized in the Old City of Jerusalem. West scheduled his first show in Israel just months after the visit.
