Ye West, formerly known as Kanye, recently revealed what changed in his life since he reached a new level of wealth.
At the Balenciaga spring 2023 show on Wall Street in New York, a woman showed Ye a spread of cash before he responded he hadn’t touched “cash in like four years.”
Ye smiled after making the statement. Earlier in the week, McDonald’s announced a partnership with the hip-hop legend to redesign the restaurant’s packaging. In part thanks to collaborations with Gap and Adidas, Ye became the richest Black man in America, according to a CBS News March 2021 report, with a net worth well over $6 billion, according to Bloomberg News. While Forbes denied reports he was America’s richest Black man, the media outlet still reported his March 2021 worth hovered around $2 billion.
