Rapper Kanye West has officially become a billionaire thanks to basketball shoes bearing his name.

According to an article published in Forbes Magazine, the rapper recently provided documents to the publication, to give them an ‘authentic numeric look into Kanye, Inc.’, and prove that he is a multi-billionaire.

The article notes that West was left unhappy with Forbes’ research and findings, stating that he believes his net worth is around $3.3 billion (Dh12.12 billion), rather than the $1.26 billion they have estimated.

“It’s not a billion,” West allegedly texted the publication, adding: “It’s $3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.”

West follows his sister-in-law and reality star Kylie Jenner, 22, who was named as the youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire for the second year in a row by Forbes.
