Kanye West’s Bar Mitzvah Rider

How much is too much to pay for a Kanye West performance? For former NBC Universal executive Jeff Zucker, the answer is $1 million. According to the New York Post, That’s the price that West quoted Zucker tried to tap him for a set at his son’s bar mitzvah over the weekend. Zucker decided to a go a different route, still dropping a whopping $250,000 on the Saturday night (May 7) event at Manhattan’s Four Seasons and hiring Young Money recording artist Drake to fill in for West. But, if ‘Ye’s performance fee alone is seven figures, we wondered what crazy requests are on the spitter’s rider. For those of you who don’t know, a rider is a list of requests an artist demands for his performance. XXL speculates on Kanye’s rider. See below. —Nicole Lopresti
