Famous hip-hop recording artist and business mogul Kanye West turned 43 yesterday. In honor of his special day, several members of his family have appreciated him.
One of the earliest to do so was Kris Jenner, Kanye’s mother-in-law. Kris took to Twitter yesterday afternoon to share several pictures of Kanye as she celebrated him on another birthday.
In the tweet, Kris appreciated him for being able to combine several responsibilities in one. She also added several pictures, showing Kanye with his family, his children, and promoting his Yeezy fashion line.
Apart from Kris, Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, also gave the rapper a birthday shout out. In an Instagram post, Kim shared a couple of throwback pictures from the couple’s early years. Both are clad in black as they smile for the camera and share a smooch.
Kim kept her caption simple, calling Kanye her “king.” However, Kris was more expressive in her tweet. With the pictures of the rapper, she said:
“Happy Birthday @Kanyewest!! You are an amazing son, father, husband, uncle, brother and friend... thank you for being such a special and important part of our family.”
Kanye has developed quite a reputation for being a family man. While he has had his fair share of controversy over the years, his devotion to his family has been absolute.
He and Kim have also flaunted their relationship pretty extensively. Along with their four children, the couple does have a lovely family.
While the rapper has achieved quite a lot, perhaps most significant is his billionaire status. It’s also worth looking back at Kanye’s 43rd year. By several standards, it has been an eventful one.
While the rapper has achieved quite a lot, perhaps most significant is his billionaire status, which Forbes Magazine confirmed recently. The news source credited his rise to the Yeezy sneaker line, explaining:
“West, in just a few years, has created a brand that’s challenging Nike’s Air Jordan for sneaker world supremacy. It’s one of the great retail stories of the century.”
The news source confirmed that the rapper is officially worth about $1.26 billion from the sneaker line alone. When put together, he should be worth about $1.3 billion.
At the same time, Forbes also explains that combing through his assets, isn’t so easy. Despite that, his billionaire status is now official.
The rapper has also made headlines for joining the recent protests against police brutality. Like many celebrities, he joined last week.
However, as some reports confirmed, the action was also a bit controversial due to some of his past remarks on race.
