Here’s a look inside Kanye West’s financial empire


Rapper-turned-presidential candidate Kanye West has a financial empire worth at least several hundred million dollars spread around a slew of companies, according to a new federal filing Monday.

The hip-hop star and fashion mogul — who announced his bid for the presidency in July — reported stakes worth more than $50 million apiece in three of his Yeezy companies, said Business Insider, which obtained a copy of the filing with the Federal Elections Commission.

Kanye, the other half of “Kimye’’ as the hubby of reality-TV star Kim Kardashian, also has a stake in Adidas worth up to $50 million and another in Nike that totals as much as $25 million, documents show.

The rapper has loads of other stakes in additional ventures, too, including eight that have generated him more than $5 million a pop in the past year, the site said.

West’s financial interests are in every industry from music and fashion to construction and marketing — and he is in a leadership position at 29 different entities, according to the filing.

He has the rights to lucrative trademarks, as well, although their value is “not readily ascertainable,’’ the papers said.

Forbes has put the rapper’s wealth at $1.3 billion, although he claimed to be worth $5 billion last month.
