Over the weekend, Forbes published an article finally establishing Kanye West as a billionaire. We can all sleep better at night now guys.
This comes after months of the rappers public protests, criticising Forbes for not naming him a billionaire in his cover issue last summer, calling it “disrespectful” and for leaving him out of their annual billionaire’s list, published earlier this month.
After giving them a closer glimpse into his finances, Forbes made West’s billionaire status official. 1.3bn to be exact! But… Kanye is still not happy.
According to the Forbes article, West text the magazine saying “it’s not a billion, it’s 3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count”, but Forbes is just not so sure.
In their article, they explain how they trimmed his “overly boastful” estimation down, revealing that the rapper only receives a cut of 11% Yeezy revenue from Adidas, despite owning 100% of it, and removing $100m in debt.
So guys, what did you think of Kanye’s reaction?
