Kanye West is massively rich, in fact he is the richest musician in the world. However, Ye is not happy about Forbes’ listing which names him in way lesser than his self proclaimed net worth.

The Chicago Native rapper doesn’t want Forbes to be undervaluing his hard work. Sources close to Ye told The Blast, Forbes released its latest Billionaires list, which features Kanye.

The rapper claimed the projected number in the newly released Forbes list is in the $2 Billion range, Whereas, Ye is worth $7 billion the outlet was told. The number has shot up since his last claim where he said he was worth $6 billion.

Most of Kanye’s net worth Kanye is derived from his massive deal with Adidas that makes up a large portion of his estate. Additionally he has another monster deal with GAP for producing and designing clothing for the brand.

Kanye firmly believes Forbes is trying to “control and diminish him even at the cost of their own integrity.” Kanye was notified ahead of article being published and is not happy with the way or the amount which is being reported.

As noted earlier Kanye is going through a divorce with Kim Kardashian but that is not going to hurt his pockets as the former couple’s prenup allowed for each party to keep the money they earned and brought into the marriage.
