Kanye West is now officially a Billionaire.
Hip hop superstar Kanye West is officially a billionaire after his sneaker line was described as “one of the great retail stories of the century”, according to Forbes magazine.
This makes West hip-hop’s second billionaire after Jay-Z.
West a rapper and fashion designer, is said to have a net worth valued at $1.3bn (£1.05bn), but Kanye was unhappy with Forbes and claimed they had undervalued him.
The rapper reportedly sent a text to one of their employees reading: “It’s not a billion.
“It’s 3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.”
Forbes has valued his Yeezy sneaker line alone at $1.26bn (£1.02bn).
