Forbes Magazine named American hip-hop singer Kanye West a billionaire. The publication estimated his fortune at $1.3 billion.
The magazine officially named the performer a billionaire after he agreed to disclose business documents and bank statements.
The musician himself claims that his fortune exceeds $3 billion, but Forbes estimates that West’s fortune is just over $1 billion.
It is specified that most of this amount was brought to the musician by his brand Yeezy – $1.26 billion. The value of all other assets of the artist, according to the magazine’s estimates, is about $125 million.
In late December last year Forbes named American rapper and producer Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Romell Young, the richest musician of the decade. According to the publication, the condition of the musician is estimated at $ 950 million.
