Kanye West The Top Musician On Forbes List Oh Highest-Paid Celebrities

Forbes has named Kanye West as the highest-paid male celebrity of 2020.

With annual earnings of $170 million, he is ranked second overall in the magazine’s annual Celebrity 100 list, behind only Kylie Jenner.

Having a fortune worth $590 million, Kylie earns more than three times that of her brother-in-law.

West collected most of his earnings from his Yeezy sneakers deal with Adidas, while Jenner’s payday came from selling a 51 percent stake in her cosmetics firm to Coty in January.

The billionaire entrepreneur and musician gets an annual royalty from Adidas, which makes Yeezy shoes. The Yeezy brand pulled in an estimated $1.3 billion in sales in 2019. West also owns a Yeezy apparel line.

In June, Gap and Kanye West announced they will start selling a line of Yeezy clothing designed for the retailer.

The 43-year old rapper shared a screenshot of a headline about his achievement on Twitter, saying, “This a good start.”
