Yes, THE Kanye: Kanye West, $1.3 Billion
Talking about Kanye West almost seems redundant since he’s so good at talking about himself all the time! Ego issues aside, he takes the #5 spot on the list. Nobody can deny Kanye’s incredible achievements, not only as a superstar rapper but also as a successful entrepreneur. Coming from a powerful pedigree – his dad was a photojournalist and Black Panther member in Atlanta, while his mother was an English professor – West built himself up from that strong foundation. Starting out as a producer with Roc-A-Fella Records, he went on to stardom, beginning with his multi-platinum debut album The College Dropout. More hit records followed, and later, Kanye launched his incredibly successful Yeezy fashion brand and the Tidal streaming service. And of course, let’s not forget, he even ran for president in 2020!
