Welcome to the good life.

Whatever your thoughts on Kanye West’s fashion designs, you can’t deny his success.

Despite traditionally being known for his music, the rapper’s personal net worth is now reportedly around a billion dollars, thanks to his fashion brand Yeezy.

The Blast recently reported that Yeezy has been valued at close to US $1.5 billion. Since West is a major stakeholder in the brand, this would mean he’s become a self-made billionaire, something which he predicted via Tweet in April.

After launching in 2015 and with six seasons under its belt, the Yeezy brand has apparently received several offers from investors but it’s not clear whether Kanye will accept any of these.

Kim Kardashian recently appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show to chat about sister Kylie’s success, seemingly confirming her husband’s financial status. You can check out the video below.
