Ye, who once for bankruptcy after going over $50 million in the red, now boasts a net worth of $1,3 billion! With this gargantuan fortune, Kanye West is the richest artist on the planet.

According to Forbes magazine, the most trusted publication on keeping tabs on the bank accounts of the world's wealthiest persons, West made most of his fortune from his Yeezy sneaker brand. The 'Power' hitmaker owns majority stake in the company, which means he hands his hands all over some $3,3 billion in total.

The news come just a year after multitudes had sworn that the critically acclaimed Hip Hop producer, who's considered by many as one of the biggest figures in Hip Hop of all time, would be cancelled. West was lambasted for making unpopular comments on slavery and publicising his support for Donald Trump.
