Kanye West Yeezy Forbes Cover Story Hero

Kanye Shows Off Hundreds of Yeezy Samples in Forbes Cover Story

Date: July 10 2019

By: T.S. FOX


Kanye West and Yeezy have been killing it – so much so that 'Ye is now believed to be the third highest-earning celebrity on earth. According to Forbes, West raked in around $150 million USD over the past year – the majority of which comes from Yeezy.

So, naturally, Forbes tapped Kanye for the cover of the latest issue of its magazine, taking a deep dive into all things Yeezy. Among the most interesting tidbits? The Yeezy brand is now nearly half the size of the Jumpman when it comes to annual sales and is expected to top $1.5 billion USD in 2019 – and it's still growing.

For sneakerheads, however, the most important thing to come out of the article and corresponding video is the insane number of Yeezy samples that 'Ye showed off on camera. From the looks of things, the number of samples may very well exceed 1,000 and, thus, includes countless never-before-seen versions of familiar models and unreleased silhouettes alike.

Check it all out below, including Yeezy Mafia's handy little breakdown of what exactly we're looking at.
