Kanye West Slams Forbes After They Declared Him a Billionaire

Published: Friday 24th Apr 2020 by Rashad

Even though Forbes has updated their records to declare Kanye West as the richest man in Hip Hop history, they were reportedly still slammed by the billionaire for undercounting his coins.

Details inside:

Forbes published a feature of the ‘Gold Digger’ hitmaker last year to detail his earnings.  Failing to declare him a billionaire at the time, however, yielded harsh criticism from the ‘Gold Digger’ hitmaker (who alleged the mag “purposely snubbed” him).

Fast forward to earlier this year, they published another billionaires list that omitted him.  He responded:

“You know what you’re doing,” he reportedly texted them. “You’re toying with me and I’m not finna lye [sic] down and take it anymore in Jesus name.”

Accusing Forbes of trying to belittle his success because of race, the GRAMMY winner contacted the mag with updated stats about his empire which (based on the information provided) asserts he is worth approximately $3.3 billion. Forbes disagreed, however, and estimated his net worth closer to $1.3 billion.

His response?


“It’s not a billion,” he texted Forbes Thursday (April 23) in response to their updated report. “It’s $3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.”

    Girlllll, kanyeesha stays bitchin. More respect if you were a billionaire in silence. The fact that you want it to be known that you have more money that you will ever be able to possibly use is gross and tacky. That come to Jesus moment disappeared real quick!!!

    Don’t care for cancel culture but if you want to put in a little overtime – here you go.

    Ermm I believe Forbes ???. But his a narcissist so his response is not surprising. Next up I hope to see Beyoncé and Rihanna reach this milestone which I think they will.

    Terrible time to boost about being a billionaire. Very Christ like. Over priced clothes and shoes. This is just so tacky. But yet you preach to the masses about Jesus. What a phony. He is making money off the t shirts and anything that says Jesus is king on it at his gatherings. He wants people to worship him.

    im confused, nikki did the same thing with billboard, did she not? so why is kanye a bad guy for correcting something they obviously messed up since they had to at least give him billionare status after being omitted. nikki went on her radio show threw a whole fit mentioned travis’ baby did everything but give the man credit and still stayed at #2.
