Hiphop superstar, Kanye West is officially a billionaire!
The rapper and entrepreneur earned the title he has long desired, thanks largely to Yeezy, the basketball shoe brand he developed with Adidas, Forbes magazine said on Friday.
Kanye is only the second hiphop star to reach that milestone after Jay-Z, whose networth was estimated at $1 billion in 2019.
The retail king joined the club after sharing his financial records with Forbes who confirmed his networth to be $1.3 billion following several months of requests.
The 42-year-old, however, claimed he is worth much higher after a previous valuation by Bank of America ranked his Yeezy empire at over $3 billion.
