Kanye West’s Yeezy brand newly valued at $1.5 billionKanye West Pablo

Kanye West‘s Yeezy brand is now valued at an estimated $1.5 billion, according to a report from The Blast.

The new valuation of the streetwear brand corroborates Kim Kardashian‘s comment that Kanye was on the brink of billions during an earlier appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in July 2018. “I would say my husband is one, so that makes me one, right?” Kardashian posited when asked whether the contents of her bank account put her over the millionaire threshold into billionaire status. “Close. Close, by proximity,” the reality TV personality added.

Kanye might not have a billion in his bank account, but the equity in his brand nonetheless puts the rapper right in line to obtain the financial status.

Kanye notably asserted that Yeezy was “the second fastest growing company in fashion history” on Twitter in April 2018.

Since Donald Glover released his torrentially trending and controversial music video for “This Is America,” under his musical alter-ego Childish Gambino, the internet has been ablaze with fervent reaction, meticulously dissecting the messages laden throughout the symbolic work.

However, on May 10, Glover took to Jimmy Kimmel Livewhere he told Kimmel that he has altogether avoided the internet and the video’s reception therein since he debuted the song on Saturday Night Live last weekend.

“It’s bad for me,” said Glover of the volatility of the internet. “I’m really sensitive. So, I was like ‘I’ll just let it be.’”

The video, which tackles a myriad of today’s most fiercely debated issues including, police brutality, gun violence, and the frivolity and fickleness of the media, has eclipsed 75 million views on YouTube in under a week. It has incited dozens of analytical essays, video responses, and over 250,000 Youtube comments, many of which attempt to unravel the intricately woven portrayal of Glover’s labyrinthine “America.”
