In 2016, Kanye West revealed via Twitter that he was in $53 million personal debt. Many believe the main reason for this debt was because Ye reportedly tried to endeavor in the fashion industry and failed terribly.
Four years later, Forbes announced that Kanye West was worth billions of dollars. In an article by Forbes, Kanye had been texting their staff since last year asking why they weren't listing him as a billionaire. At some point, the G. O. O. D Music head reportedly claimed that Forbes were racially profiling him by ‘suppressing his self-made narrative'. Forbes later evaluated financial reports provided by Kanye including those from his Yeezy brand and they later declared him a billionaire.
Some fans were left in shock considering that it is only four years ago when Ye was in debt of millions of dollars, and yet he is already a billionaire. Well, it seems that wasn't enough shock, Kanye West has announced that he is now worth $5 billion. “From $53 million in debt to a net worth of $5 billion in 4 years. Thank you, Jesus. I know I fall short, but I repent. I am fully in service to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are building schools of the future. Thank God for providing the increase”. Tweeted West while sharing a screenshot of a report from OK New.
