Kanye West Is The Wealthiest Black Man In History
Congrats to Kanye West, as the 43 year old rapper, producer and fashion designer is now worth about 6.6 Billion! This makes him the wealthiest black man in history! Yup, right in the middle of his divorce. Yeezy’s collab with Gap is set to hit stores this summer and “could be worth as much as $970 million” of the brands value, per Bloomberg. Do remember that last year, the Grammy winner signed a 10-year-agreement to design and sell apparel under the Yeezy Gap label. West still holds total ownership and creative power within the company.
