$20,000 Worth of Gear Stolen from Kanye West's Studio
Published May 30, 2016Kanye West's studio was robbed last week, with the thief reportedly getting their hands on $20,000 worth of laptop and desktop computers.
The news was broken by TMZ over the weekend, though the burglary is believed to have taken place last Monday night (May 23). According to TMZ's "law enforcement sources," the door to West's Calabasas office was pried open overnight, allowing the thief access to the studio.
West hasn't publicly spoken out about the robbery, but seems to be keeping rather cool given the circumstances. TMZ also reports that the gear has already been replaced and that no information or creative projects were compromised on the stolen computers thanks to heavy tech security measures that had been put in place.
Unfortunately, 'Ye is no stranger to his tech gear getting stolen. He even references his "dirty motherfucker" of a cousin that pulled one such stunt on The Life of Pablo cuts "No More Parties in L.A." and "Real Friends."
