Kanye West Only Earns 5% Of All Yeezy Sales & Royalties

NY TIMES reports that West earns 5 percent royalties on net sales of his shoes and apparel. With YEEZY sales expected to top $1.3 billion this year, Kanye could be walking away with a $65 million pay check at the end of 2019.

It’s unclear what other financial agreements are in place, as both sides have been able to keep most of the terms under wraps. Still, this information from an unnamed source in the New York Times provides a fresh look at the partnership and answers questions many have had about how much YEEZY’s Adidas affiliation is netting Kanye West.
