Earlier this week, Bloomberg claimed that rapper and businessman Kanye West is now the richest black man in U.S history with a whopping net worth of $6.6 billion.
However, contrary to the lengthy report by Bloomberg, Forbes shared an article disputing Kanye’s billionaire status. According to Forbes, Kanye is still a billionaire just not the richest and in fact, his estimated net worth stands at $1.8 billion. Vista Equity’s Robert F. Smith remain the richest black person in America with an estimated net worth of $6 billion.
Although Forbes may be stating facts, we couldn’t help but notice a bit of hate in their caption and article.
