The popular rapper, Kanye West is now a billionaire.
Forbes magazine on Friday revealed that the rough figure of the wealth of Kim Kardashian’s hubby is $1.3 billion.
Before now, Kanye West was associated with Nike for years but broke away in 2013. He started his advertisement with Adidas where they launched their first shoe together in 2015.
According to the magazine, the musician is now on its list of people worth at least $1 billion. Forbes said for long before now, Kanye West has been pressing the magazine to be listed as one of its mega-rich and that his effort to be listed as such was always declined, for lack of proof.
The Forbes Magazine said that much of the rest of Kanye West’s wealth comes from the real estate he owns. The magazine added that tongue in cheek that for years it had applied what it called the Trump Rule to West: “take whatever the future president insisted he was worth, divide by three, and start honing from there.” West is the second American rapper to make the Forbes list after Jay-Z, the 42-year-old, Chicago-born rapper’s Yeezy footwear often sells for more than $200 a pair in the United States and elsewhere.
