Kanye West Become A Billionaire And Here Is How He Made His Fortune

Kanye West, an American rapper, who was, barely four years ago, rapping about swimming in massive debts has officially been declared Billionaire by Forbes.

 

Today, we have the full break down of how he made his billions.

HOW KANYE WEST MADE HIS MONEY

Adidas & Yeezy Boot

Much of his fortune comes from his lucrative deal with Adidas, which he signed back in 2009, launching the Yeezy Boot Designs, of which he takes 100% ownership, earning at least 5% royalties from the widely successful sales made each time a new design is marketed.

The brand has created at least 350 diversified and creative boots so far, driving art-thirsty kids crazy. Not only has Yeezy Boost Designs sold all the articles released like hotcakes, but they also had to restock many designs to meet the increasing demands of their loyal customers, who naturally happen to be Kanye West’s die-hard fans.

How Forbes Made Mistake & He Corrected Them

When Forbes did not add Kanye West to their shiny 2020 list of famous Billionaires, he was reportedly enraged.

“You know what you are doing,” he said in a text message. “You are toying with me and I am not finna lye down and take it anymore in Jesus’ name.”

Forbes later cooperated with the rapper, allowing his team to provide a detailed insight into his Yeezy Brand net worth. Forbes ran proper calculations and came to the conclusion that the net worth of the American rapper is 1.2 billion dollars.

Kanye West Said His Worth Is 3.3 Billion Dollars

Kanye West claimed that Forbes had miscalculated and that his net worth was at least 3.3 billion dollars.

Though, as of now, the rapper, who has recently been criticized heavily for being a manipulative misogynist by the musical world in general, has officially been entitled Billionaire, proving that public admiration is not always what you need in order to line your pockets.

The billionaire seems to be passionate about exploring different fields, always pushing his limits as a rapper to dig deep into his actual potential and talent. Who knows where he might be in a couple of years?
