Ye is an entrepreneur who has his hands on many things, and one of them is basketball. He launched the Donda Academy earlier in 2021, which he intends to be a prep school that recruits the most talented prospects from across the nation, doing daily routine practices, and keeping up with academics through online learning. On December 23, TMZ reported him sitting courtside with fellow rappers French Montana and O.T Genasis at a basketball matchup at Whittier College in California on the night of December 22. Ye was seen chatting with his team players and signing the backs of cell phones for the surrounding fans and college students that flocked the 44-year old rapper.

The prep school boasts some of the nation’s most gifted basketball athletes, such as JJ Taylor, Rob Dillingham, Jahki Howard, and Zion Cruz. But due to the fact that this high school basketball academy is owned by a world-renowned celebrity, resale tickets to the game were sold from $25 to $500. That’s not even the price of some professional NBA playoff tickets. His name definitely precedes him wherever he goes.

Ye also showed up to the matchup game in attire that doesn’t depict your average basketball coach. No gym sweatpants, no Donda team jersey. He actually sported all black from head to toe and even instructed the fans to do the same. They obeyed Ye’s command and were also seen in all-black attire.

It wasn’t much of a coincidence seeing French Montana next to Kanye at the basketball game since he used to date Kim Kardashian’s sister, Khloe Kardashian. Montana came as a special guest of the Donda Academy Doves. Besides attending the basketball game to view from the sidelines, Montana was also spotted gifting Kanye a special edition pair of Air Jordan 3 “Coke Boy L.A Ave” edition sneakers. But as a part of his all-black dress code, he sports either Balenciaga or how own Yeezy Apparel boots. It’s clear to see that, despite his turbulence with his relationship with his wife, Kim Kardashian, he is still enjoying the fruit of his investments.
