Kanye West Becomes The Richest Black Man In American History – Now Worth $6.6 Billion



Hip Hop mogul, Kanye West has now been ranked as the richest Black man in American history after his net worth skyrocketed to over $6.6 billion.

The 43-year-old rapper’s new worth came as a result in major increase in sales on his Yeezy brand. Yeezy sneakers and clothing line— now bolstered by Adidas AG and Gap Inc. — is valued between $3.2 billion and $4.7 billion by UBS Group AG, according to Bloomberg.
