First, let’s cover why we wanted to cover Kanye West’s net worth and write about this interesting matter…

- Jay Z saw something special in Kanye to become a mentor and let him help produce his Blueprint album
- Kanye always disrupts the social media and internet space and gets massive attention
- Kanye never changes who he is and is still successful at what he does

If you want to learn more about Kanye West’s bio Biography.com kills it with thier summary. Here is a blurb and you can click here to learn more..
We think they do the best job so no reason for us to repeat all of that here again.
Kanye Omari West was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on June 8, 1977. He left college to pursue a musical career, producing tracks for Jay-Z while polishing his demo. He released The College Dropout in 2004. It sold 2.6 million copies and won Best Rap Album. His follow-up releases have been equally successful and West has become a celebrity famous for his outrageous and entertaining statements
It’s always good to understand where someone comes from and their background because it helps define a person and teaches you about them. Knowing where someone started and where they are now is part of the story. And Kanye’s background makes his growth story and how he built his net worth to an estimated $100 million to $145 million dollars.
In his story you can see he is was born in Atlanta and grew up in Chicago after his parents divorced when he was 3. He went to high school where his charitable foundation helps kids not drop out of high school in memory of his mother. Again, showing a side of Kanye West people don’t talk about.
However, in his story you can see he persevered towards something he loved and had a passion for (music) no matter the obstacle and drop out of art college to help produce Jay Z’s Blueprint which sold over 400,000 copies (results).
The two things in any success story is doing something you love and have a passion for and can you get results or make money with it!
Another element of how Kanye West grew his net worth is staying in his lane (niche) and NOT CARING ABOUT WHAT ANYONE says to effect who he really is. He might be listening to what people say about him but one thing you will notice Kanye stays Kanye.
