Kanye West is most certainly a controversial artist and creative. To say the least, it has been quite a wild ride for Ye these last few years. However, in spite of all the messiness, it’s projected that he is right on track to raking in big money in profits from his clothing line alone. In fact, $1.5 billion is the estimated gross from the Yeezy clothing line by the end of 2019.
The rapper, producer, songwriter turned fashion designer is expected to add billionaire to his list of titles. The Yeezy brand is made up of both apparel and footwear, but the sneaker line is what’s bringing in the bulk of the revenue.
In a recent interview with Forbes magazine, West references his early love of sketching sneaker designs as a child. He also attributes his business success to drawing inspiration from his love for the exclusive style of Lamborghini, being “a product guy at my core” and his desire “to make products that make people feel an immense amount of joy and solve issues and problems in their life, that’s the problem-solving that I love to do.” In between making waves in the fashion industry, he’s still in the studio, working on an album tentatively titled “Yandhi.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Kanye’s political affiliations, and even mental state may be questionable, but his musical and creative genius cannot be denied. Keep securing that bag Ye!
