Kanye West net worth: Kanye West is an American producer, rapper, fashion designer and actor who has a net worth of $250 million. For those who were expecting Kanye's net worth to be a $1 billion, we're sorry to report that rumor is 100% fake news. Please read this article to understand why. Kanye DID make $100 million between June 2018 and June 2019. Those earnings came largely from his Adidas partnership. According to a June 2019 New York Times article, Kanye earns a 5% per-shoe wholesale royalty from Adidas. Yeezy separately owns his own Yeezy apparel line outright 100%, but profits from that label are relatively minuscule compared to the sneaker line which generates a reported $1 billion in revenue per year as of 2019.

He dropped out of college to pursue his career in the music industry, starting out initially as a producer for Roc-A-Fella records. Kanye eventually persuaded label head Jay-Z to sign him on as a rapper. He spent four years honing and perfecting what would become his debut album, "The College Dropout", which came in at number two on the Billboard 200 and is still Kanye West's best-selling album in the United States. Subsequent albums, "Late Registration", "Graduation", "808s & Heartbreak" and "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" were also chart-toppers that received critical and commercial success. His production credits include an impressive role call of talent including: Jay-Z, Beyoncé, John Legend, Alicia Keys and Janet Jackson. West is also a seasoned businessman with a chain of Fatburger restaurants designated for the Chicago area, a line of athletic shoes for Nike called Air Yeezy, and another shoe line with Louis Vuitton.
