The state of the rapper, who was on the verge of bankruptcy a few years ago, can reach $6.6 billion.

While fans of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are trying to find out the financial details of their upcoming divorce, the media is counting the rapper's growing income. According to Bloomberg, the musician's fortune reaches $6.6 billion, making him the richest African-American in the history of the United States.

The rapper earns the most revenue from his brand Yeezy — the value of the brand is estimated from $3.2 billion to $4.7 billion. It is estimated that Kanye West will receive about $970 million more from the collaboration with Gap, which will go on sale this summer. A good profit for the rapper is also brought by music and investments (by the way, in the Skims underwear brand of Kim Kardashian, among others).

Curiously, only a year ago, in April 2020, West was recognized as a dollar billionaire-then Forbes estimated the rapper's fortune at $1.3 billion.

Recall also that a few years ago, Kanye West was on the verge of bankruptcy: in 2016, the rapper admitted that the size of his debts is $53 million, then he asked the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg about an investment of $1 billion.
