Kanye West was outraged at not appearing on the list of billionaires in the world
News author: Linda Davis / 2019-11-09 23:47:09Rapper Kanye West has once again unleashed controversy over his recent confessions during a surprise appearance at the Fast Company Innovation festival, as he announced that the name will be changed for a year.
"When people say it is rude to call themselves a billionaire, I say that I could legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until they understand exactly what it is ... it will be on a plaque," said West.
The rapper mentioned the name change because, according to him, the world of the economy does not recognize him as a billionaire, since last month Forbes magazine estimated that the brand “Yeezy” that West has in association with Adidas, would have USD 1.5 billion (more than 28 billion in Mexican pesos) in 2019. However, in June the publication ranked him as the fourth richest hip hop artist, with a fortune of USD 240 million (approximately 4,584,744,000 Mexican pesos).
