Four years ago, Kanye West shared via Twitter that he was $53 million in debt. Kanye is believed to have accumulated this debt after he reportedly attempted to venture into the fashion industry and failed.

Just recently, Forbes announced Kanye as a billionaire. According to Forbes, the Yeezy designer had been texting their staff since last year, asking why he wasn’t being listed as a billionaire. The artist, at some point, reportedly claimed that Forbes was racially profiling him. 

After evaluating Kanye’s financial reports provided by him, including those from his Yeezy brand, Forbes later declared West a billionaire. 

Kanye’s billionaire status came as a surprise to many fans considering it was just four years ago that the artist proclaimed to be millions of dollars in debt. Kanye is only further expanding his wealth. The artist made an announcement on October 8, stating that he is now worth $5 billion.

“From $53 million in debt to a net worth of $5 billion in 4 years. Thank you, Jesus. I know I fall short, but I repent. I am fully in service to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are building schools of the future. Thank God for providing the increase”. Said West on Tweeter while sharing a screenshot of a report from OK News.

According to documents obtained, it has been revealed that West’s footwear brands Yeezy LLC, Yeezy Apparel LLC, and Yeezy Footwear LLC are worth more than $50 million each.

Kanye’s assets also include his publishing and content creation firm, West Brands LLC, valued at up to $5 million, and his music-related property Mascotte Holdings Inc. valued between $5 million and $25 million.

YFN Lucci is said to be seeing Reginae Carter. Apparently, the two broke up because Lucci attended a party that ladies used cucumbers inappropriately and went ahead to post it on social media.

Currently, it is not clear if they got back together but they just might  because of the pictures they posted eating together. Long story short, Regiane’s ‘boyfriend’ didn’t seem to find YoungBoy’s thoughts funny.

Lil Durk had nothing but good things to say about Juice WRLD and his singing talent. In an interview with Montreality, Durk spoke highly of the late Juice and how he knew he was special. He also suggested that Juice had the potential to be the next Kanye West, Hip Hop star.

I rock with him 1000%. [Juice WRLD] was an icon. I’m not just saying that because of what happened to him. He had an advantage to be, like, the next Kanye West coming out of Chicago because he was smart.

He also talked of the late rapper’s music talent, saying he was a music genius and would impress everyone in the studio.

His personality was crazy. You know what I’m saying, music genius. He’d go in that motherf*cker and freestyle. You know how you go in the studio with somebody and he’s going crazy and even your team is like, ‘oh sh*t, you gotta go crazy!’ They’re putting pressure on me. I damn near forgot who the f*ck I was for a minute.”

Juice died in December 2019 from an overdose of codeine and oxycodone. 

We will never know how Juice’s music career would have played out, but he was trending on a bright path. In March 2019, his album ‘Death Race for Love’ topped Billboard 200 and after his death, his posthumous ‘Legends Never Die’ was No. 1 on the chart in July 2020.
