Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West isn't heading to Coachella this weekend. New reports claim the widespread Yeezy rumor is ultimately going to fall flat.
Despite heightened gossip, new buzz suggests Mr. West won't appear at the star-studded event.
Rumors have been swirling 'Ye would make his big comeback this weekend in the desert. He's featured on "THat Part" by ScHoolboy Q - a performer this year - and has worked with Travis Scott (who will arguably play the biggest show of his career at Coachella). Multiple festival sources are clear ... Kanye will not perform at Coachella ... period. Kanye's no stranger to the music festival ... he jumped onstage with A$AP Rocky last year and famously headlined in 2011. (TMZ)
Recently, Kanye's The Life Of Pablo reached a historic milestone off streaming.
On Tuesday (April 4), Pablo achieved platinum status, according to a press release from the rapper's label Def Jam. A rep for the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) confirmed the certification to Billboard. While the label says that the project is the first streaming-only album to go platinum, Billboard reported last April that TLOP was briefly available for sale on West's official site upon its release in February.

Last October, a plaque surfaced of Kanye's album reaching platinum status from sales.
Back in April 2016, Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian revealed their daughter actually destroyed the album before its release.
"Kanye had every single rap in his iPhone before he really started working on [The Life of] Pablo and then North flushed it down the toilet and they could not be retrieved. We sent it to like four places." ("Kocktails With Khloé")
