Kanye West is reminding the world just how rich and famous he actually is...and if you forget it, you won't now because he changing his name to "Christian Genius Billionaire." But is there a major issue here?
Kanye made an appearance alongside his wife, Kim Kardashian, at the Fast Company Innovation Festival and told the crowd he may change his name to Christian Genius Billionaire so that he gets the proper credit as an entrepreneur.
During the panel discussion, West's revelation came as he pointed out the global dominance of his Yeezy brand. "When I did Forbes, I showed them an $890 million receipt and they still didn't say 'billionaire."
Kanye was referencing an article in which called Yeezy a "billion-dollar empire. "They don't want us to know that we can buy land; they don't want us to have the 100 percent ownership I have at Yeezy," he continued.
West told the crowd, "When people say it's crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y'all understand exactly what it is...It will be on the license plate."
