Hip hop may soon have its next billionaire, Kanye West.
It’s mainly due to the recent valuation of his Yeezy clothing line, which was set at $1.5 billion.
While the company is a partnership with Adidas, Kanye is the majority shareholder. This is putting him on the brink of billionaire status.
The feat is even more impressive when you consider how Kanye’s clothing label struggled in its early years to the point of nearly sending him into bankruptcy.
His hard work and belief in himself obviously paid off!
