Anything for the king of hip-hop


Kanye West is no stranger to weird rider requests and his one for the Pablo tour is no exception.

And it looks like his wife Kim Kardashian is especially happy with his choice: a frozen Hennessy and coke alongside frozen Grey Goose and lemonade.

Sharing the post on snapchat, she captioned it: ‘Pablo rider is LIT’.

But this is actually tame compared to the riders he’s had in the past. While touring with Jay Z, the list got pretty weird. In a list given to TMZ, Beyoncé‘s hubby asked for a 71 degree temperature in the room (that’s 21 degrees C) and 3 $80 Mayan tuberose-scented candles is strange enough.


Kanye takes it to the next level. He asks that all vases must be cylindrical. Why would that even be a request? CYLINDRICAL VASES.

He also wanted the staff to acquire a Genelecs 1031a speaker… which wouldn’t be too bad, if it hadn’t been discontinued ten years ago. He also wanted three bottles of Hennessy, so some things he doesn’t grow out of.

Way back in 2007, he had fewer alcoholic demands, but, boy, you don’t want to get his soft drink orders wrong.

Not only did he want 24 500ml bottles of non-carbonated spring – not purified – water, but 24 Propel Water, which is labelled as a ‘must have’.

You’d think one of the most successful rappers in the world would want at least a drop of liquor, but he instead settles for a cheese and cracker tray for eight that must be covered with plastic wrap. He also wanted two LARGE (that was capitalised and bolded in the rider request) fruit trays, including watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, white and red grapes, and strawberries.

Maybe living with Kim Kardashian has driven Kanye West to drink.
