Forbes magazine has recognized American hip-hop artist Kanye West as a billionaire. The publication estimated his fortune at $ 1.3 billion.
The magazine officially named the artist a billionaire after he agreed to disclose his business documentation and bank statements.
The musician himself claims that his fortune exceeds $ 3 billion. However, according to Forbes, West’s fortune is slightly more than the $ 1 billion mark.
It is specified that most of this amount was brought to the musician by his Yeezy brand – $ 1.26 billion. The cost of all the artist’s other assets, according to the magazine’s calculations, is approximately $ 125 million in total.
At the end of December last year, Forbes named the American rapper and producer Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Romelle Young, is the richest musician of the decade. According to the publication, the state of the musician is estimated at $ 950 million.
