Kanye West, now recognized as Ye, has a current net worth of roughly $400 million without his partnership with Adidas, according to recent accounts from Forbes. One of the main reasons for this drop was the big fall in the market value of Yeezy, Kanye’s sneaker and clothing brand, which happened after it lost its deals with Gap and Adidas.

Kanye West, or Ye, had previously been estimated at around $2 billion, proclaiming to be a self-made billionaire. Ye’s Yeezy brand, made up for most of this estimation, as UBS Group’s study in 2021 revealed, that Yeezy alone was worth between $3.2 billion and $4.7 billion. Bank of America had also estimated that future royalties from it deal with Adidas would range from between $1.75 billion to $3 billion, in 2019.


Forbes and the rapper have been at odds for years. He always felt his net worth was underappreciated. After making the list with an approximated $1 billion in 2020, Ye was not pleased. In a text conversation between Ye and Forbes, he questioned the outlet saying, “It’s not a billion. It’s $3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count”. But as of October 2022, Ye is no more on the coveted billionaire list.
