America’s viral rapper Kanye West is neither relatively short nor too tall. There are speculations that the rapper’s height is 5 feet 8 inches. So we will look at comparisons with those he had taken shots with and you can draw the conclusions yourself.

However, in the song American Boy by Estelle featuring Ye, the British rapper gave a close clue. The line “I just met this 5 foot 7 guy that’s just my type.” But views and analysis proved that Estelle used the number 7 because that was the only two-syllable number suitable for the song.

Interestingly, we have a perfect comparison to deduce the height of Kanye West. The rapper is not as tall as his friend, Donald Trump. From the picture, you could see that the Donda album maker was just at the ear height of the former president. Meanwhile, Trump’s height is 1.9m, thus 6 feet 2 inches.

Considering their footwear the rapper’s 5 feet 8 inches claim could be right. You can see above. In that case, his longtime rival, Drake is taller than Kanye. He’s 5 feet 11 inches. But that would be only 3 inches difference. Last year, J Prince brought them together to erase their beef.

The three took a shot together and you can clearly see the difference. Even though Kanye was on a long sole boot I guess. Oh! Another photo they took with Will Smith back in 2015 proves this.

Interestingly, Usher’s height is also 5 feet 8 inches. You can see that in a photo they took in 2015 with Outkast. And oh! Another in 2014 MTV Base where they were named honorees.

Summing all up, the claims of Kanye West measuring 5 feet 8 inches are legit.
