When you’re Kanye West, your interaction with money is different.
The Chicago native has been in the game for years and has achieved much success, but when it comes to the coin, he probably doesn’t move like most. And, it’s to the point that he has to think about the last time he’s ever physically come into contact with cash.
According to HipHopDX, the rapper has confirmed that it’s been years since he’s actually touched cash.
“What you want me to pose with that?” he asked as a woman approached him with a wad of cash. “I ain’t going to lie to you. I ain’t touch cash in like four years.”
With a smirk, the rapper shrugged off the statement and even began to chuckle as someone next to him pointed out that his response was an indicator of “real wealth.”
How Much Is Kanye Worth?
It comes as no surprise that West’s relationship with money isn’t like the average person’s.
As previously reported by AfroTech, the “Jesus Walks” emcee is worth approximately $1.8 billion.
His work as a producer and artist might have aided in his current net worth, but it’s his work with companies like adidas and GAP that have taken his pockets to a whole different level.
In addition, the popular YEEZY SUPPLY clothing line also plays a role in the wealth that West has been able to accumulate.
All About The Benjamins
More recently, West is proof that his work as a visionary does not stop. Earlier this week, he announced that he will work alongside Muji industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa to “reimagine” the food packaging for Mcdonald’s.
What’s more, on May 27, the global superstar dropped a collaboration with the late rapper XXXTENTACION for a track titled “True Love.”
