Kanye West Joins Exclusive Club Of Hip-Hop Billionaires.

American rapper, Kanye west has officially hit the mark as one of hip-hop billionaires.

According to business magazine Forbes, the rapper becomes the second hip hop star, after Jay Z, to be certified a billionaire by the magazine. Last year, his 15 percent royalty from his Yeezy footwear sales (in partnership with Adidas) fetched him roughly $140 million.

A breakdown of some of the assets Kanye’s team made available to Forbes showed $81 million in “buildings and improvements,” $21 million in land, $3.8 million for “vehicles,” and $297,050 for “livestock.”

Forbes added that apart from the music, half of Kanye’s assets presumably belongs to his equally famous wife, Kim Kardashian West. The rapper’s G.O.O.D music label, recorded songs, and publishing rights are estimated at about $90 million.
