Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, is an award-winning music artist, record producer, and fashion designer. He’s famous for hit albums like The College Dropout, his Yeezy brand, and his former marriage to Kim Kardashian West.
Since he began his ascent as a rapper in 1996, Ye has recorded over 100 Billboard Hot 100 songs, earned more than 20 Grammy Awards, and amassed a net worth of over a billion dollars. But most of that wealth came courtesy of Yeezy, his sneaker collaboration with the sportswear company Adidas, which was terminated in 2022 after Ye made several antisemitic comments.
