Forbes Disputes Reports of Kanye West's Wealth


This week it was reported that Kanye West was worth $6.6 billion making him the riches Black man in America [click here if you missed that]. 

Not so fast... 

From Forbes
On Wednesday, multiple outlets reported that Kanye West is the richest Black person in America, worth as much as $6.6 billion. The news comes after Bloomberg reported that his sneaker brand, Yeezy—as well as Yeezy Gap, which has yet to sell one stitch of clothing—have a combined value of as much as $4.7 billion. The publication mentioned, without going into full detail, an additional $1.7 billion in assets.
It’s not true, based on our calculations. Forbes estimates he’s worth less than a third of that, or $1.8 billion. That’s a big jump from last May when Forbes first pegged his net worth to be $1.3 billion, but nowhere near as much as the purported $6.6 billion. Vista Equity’s Robert F. Smith remains the richest Black person in the U.S., worth an estimated $6 billion, while Aliko Dangote of Nigeria, worth $11.8 billion, is the richest Black person in the world.

$1 billion or $6 billion that's still a lot of cheese.

Umm take that with a grain of salt. Forbes the same one that took a momma Kris check to state Kyle was a billionaire when she wasn't and then backtracked when caught in their lies. Forbes just the bougie version of the National Enquirer.

How much land does Kanye own?

How much liquidity does Kanye have?

Are autochthons (global coily-haired Black/Negro/African people) aware that straight-haired Caucasoid groups from Asia accumulated wealth at our expense through rape, homicide, genocide, fraud and theft?

Are autochthons aware that we are the original land occupants/owners/inhabitants everywhere on this planet before other mutant/hybrid derivative racial groups were formed and displaced us in several geographies?

Wake up from your amnesia, Autochthons! You will only find truth in the dark and fraud and deception in the light.

Many are duped into committing criminal acts and abusing others over paper currency that has no intrinsic value. It is unfortunate many are unaware that we are the mediums of exchange.

Paper currency is backed by military with CRIMINAL AUTHORITY to loot from whomever they want, however they want and whenever they want to build up their nation's treasury. Even debt is fake. Ask the Yiddish AshkenNAZI's.

All of us are indoctrinated and conditioned under a criminal system...which adversely alters our perception of reality and interrupts our cognitive connection with nature.

As a result of violence and terror inflicted against us, we adopt/adapt foreign, corrupt pathologies that cause self-violation. No wonder a 'dog-eat-dog' mentality festers within the psyche of those who don't engage self-thinking potentials to create or produce value.

It is a disturbing spectacle to witness how Blacks unwittingly celebrate the Caucasian's criminal heritage and brag about his riches. It is evident of a colonized, Stockholm-syndrome mentality. Our continued stupidity is a gratuitous insult to our Black/Negro/African ancestors.

Among ethnic Blacks are those who want to be liberated from Caucasoid-controlled monetary systems and global criminal slave systems that rape us of our intellect, labor and land resources. We fully understand what the outcome will be if we don't restore BLACK AUTONOMY for our future generations.

White-domination and criminality will not exist into perpetuity. We are not meant to be ruled by others. It is our responsibility to revoke the psychic and intellectual violence wrought against us by any means necessary.

Those among us who interfere with Black liberation initiatives will meet their demise.

Shucking, jiving and butt-licking will become a relic of the past once there is a true realization among the collective that WAR was implemented against us over 2,000 years ago without provocation and it's still in progress. Our response will be effective...

Yeah that's the kettle calling the pot black, Forbes is full of BS. "Kanye goes against the normal fake money calculator and they got jealous." Is the real headline. I'm convinced after his breakdown where he said Beyonce pays for her awards and Jay Z has killers IS the reason he aligned himself with Trump and continues to go against the grain. The Carter's are some elitist puppets and Kanye exposed them. I'm not even sure he's crazy? I think he pretends, so anything he says is discredited. The Gap contract was a good move. It shows me he ain't that crazy.

@2:27 APPLAUSE, you said it, every single word.

People forget about what Kanye actually said during his infamous rant. THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE BIG STORY

The bigger story became he was hospitalized for mental break down. This was on purpose to discredit Kanye,

I never bought the story line.

Kanye is essentric, and nerdy,not crazy,
any by his own admission strung on pills during that time.

He has a lot of money from his Yeezy's I don't believe that he is that rich or wealthy....

Anonymous said...

I dont believe it. Has not toured, made any music this is selling and nobody this past year has money to purchase expensive sneakers. So how would he make that much money?

Anonymous said...

Stop Lying about his Wealth !!!! we know he have some coins but its not in the Billions as they claim. Wait until that Succubus wife get through with him. That's when he's really going to go over the edge. ain't nobody buying those ugly ass hybrid looking crocs sneakers. Kanye AIN'T NO FASHION ICON!!! i'm not spending my cash on his GAP colaboration at all.

Forbes' calculations are known to be way off. Hopefully, Bloomberg News or some other competitor can do a better job. This would be a good start.
