Kanye West's $57 million Malibu mansion is decaying.

The $57 million Malibu mansion owned by Kanye West serves as a good representation of Kanye.

The Tadao Ando-designed beachfront home was once instantly likable and the pinnacle of artistic ingenuity, much like the person now known as Ye.

Ye's 4,000 square foot Malibu home and himself have since started to rot from the inside out.

Although Ye has always had problems, the Malibu mansion could have remained attractive.

In order to see how Ye's reputation has deteriorated over the past few years—and,

depending on your opinion of his recent music, his career—let's travel back in time to when he first bought the house.

News of Ye's purchase of a Tadao Ando-designed oceanfront home in Malibu for about $57 million surfaced toward the end of September 2021.
