Where do we begin with singer Ye, formerly known as Kanye West? He’s made several headlines up to 2021 and most of them have been on the controversial side. He’s most recently been mentioned in the media for his new name, his 2020 presidential run, his outrageous rants, and for his rocky marriage with TV personality Kim Kardashian-West.
However, in the music industry, Ye has been wildly successful selling 21 million albums and 100 million downloads worldwide. Similar to his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, he runs a billion-dollar empire called Yeezy and has statistically become the second richest celebrity in the world behind his sister-in-law, Kylie Jenner after becoming the highest-paid hip-hop artist in the industry.
