Kanye West Is Now The Richest Black Man in the US

While things may be rocking with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West, things are also looking up.

The rapper is now a certified billionaire and not the richest man in the United States with the help of his successful apparel and trainer brand, Yeezy, and his new contract with Gap.

According to reports:

West’s Yeezy brand – and deals with Gap and sportswear giant Adidas – is valued at $3.2bn (£2.2bn) to $4.7bn (£3.4bn).

The new Yeezy Gap line, set to be released later this summer, is expected to be worth more than $970m (£694m).

West also invested a significant amount in his ex-wife’s Skims label.

Congrats to Kanye!
