Kanye West’s recent anti-Semitic remarks led many businesses to cancel and pull outtheir brand’s association with him. Consequently, his “two-year run in ten-figure territory is over—and hip-hop’s wealth hierarchy has seen its biggest shakeup to date,” Greenburg wrote on his Zogblog substack.

The ‘Donda’ rapper sits on third rank thanks to his 5% stake in former wife Kim Kardashian’s $3.2 billion shapewear line, his music catalog and footwear brand Yeezy.
Meanwhile, rapper Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter tops the chart with a whopping $1.5 billion backed by his Armand de Brignac champagne and Roc Nation entertainment company, stakes in startups like Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie line and more. Sean “Diddy” Combs follows with $1 billion, becoming third billionaire, thanks to Cîroc partnership with Diageo and takes in DeLeón tequila Revolt, along with his music catalog, startup investments and other assets.
