Wait, what? Kanye West is worth $6.6bn - that's a lot of randelas
“I had a dream I could buy my way to heaven,” sang Kanye West in his track Can't Tell Me Nothing.
And now, having an estimated net worth of $6.6bn (R96.89bn) in the bank, he'll probably get the penthouse option.
Bloomberg reports that the rapper's mega deal with Gap Inc. has added big bucks to his wealth, which was already boosted by his Yeezy collab with Adidas.
West has sole ownership and creative control over the Yeezy brand and last year signed a 10-year deal to design and sell clothes for men, women and kids under the Yeezy Gap label. It excludes footwear, as that partnership stands with Adidas until 2026.
As news of his soaring wealth became public knowledge, making it a Good Morning (see what we did there), social media was lit with commentary.
Mr Kardashian? Nah. It was always Mrs West.
Kanye West proclaiming he’ll be a billionaire in 4 years while sitting in $50 million of debt and now sitting on a net worth of $6.6 billion, achieving everything people called him crazy for saying is proof that no matter what he says he’ll do, you can never write him off.— All Love Hip Hop (@AllLoveHipHop) March 17, 2021

What makes me more happy is that he is not the media's darling or favorite, they have their own people, but he keeps excelling and they can't do anything about that!! pic.twitter.com/uCtTsyNPzS
