Before we move on to our list of money-makers, have you ever listened to the lyrics the artists are putting in their music for you? You might be surprised at the messages these financial magnets are sharing. These financial giants are more than rappers. They are making it their business to master the financial world. They are not limited by geography. No matter where they live they are ready to do financial business anywhere and anytime. They drop hints in their work to spark you into beginning your own journey. If you want to have money like them, maybe you should begin to act like them. Rappers are out to change the world. They are always prepared to take the next step. They are never afraid to make a change and never glued to an old way of doing business, just because it has always been done that way. The key is this. You have to work. You have to save. You must earn the money and let it work for you. You have to be bold and brave, and sometimes you suffer today for your tomorrow. It is not magic.
The Richest Rappers of 2020
Take a look at this list. There is not a name on this list that you will not recognize as a major star. But, there is not one person on this list that is not invested in multiple areas that substantially enhance their wealth. Let’s look at Kanye West, for example.
Kanye West, net worth: $1.3 billion
Kanye West is a world-famous musical star. He has had 69 Grammy nominations and has won 21 Grammy Awards. He is an American producer, rapper, fashion designer, and entrepreneur.
● Real estate assets = $120 million
● Music catalogue including G.O.O.D Music = $80 million
● Yeezy.com website = $100 million
● Value of Yeezy brand = $3 billion
● Other assets = $20 million
Total assets = $3.32 billion
While Kanye West is a Super-Star, rolling him into that single category is unfair and untrue. He is a self-made millionaire in many industries.
Yes, Jay-Z will go down in history as a great musical icon, and he has a great business mind and his rap is always premium so he will not be dropping down this list. Let’s take a closer look at this financial giant. Jay-Z has financial interests in:
- Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Ussé cognac
- Founder of Roc Nation
- Real Estate
- homes in Los Angeles, the Hamptons, Tribeca)
- including work by Jean-Michel Basquiat
This is just a small list that does not come close to the growing list of all of the assets Jay-Z is invested in. If you add his famous wife Beyonce’s world-class contributions and interests you can see why this powerful couple could be the most successful people in the world.
In an interview with Forbes Magazine, P. Diddy said he got his first job at 12-years old as a paperboy and he had been working hard ever since. That job, with his elderly clients, taught him to always give his customers the best he could give them. His paper-boy days are way behind him as this Professional American Rapper and Producer is worth in the area of $885 million in 2021.
P. Diddy got his start in Rap and he has stayed true. He has ventured into other areas which we will mention shortly. But, make no mistake about it. His genius is his image and his talent. He is his own creation. He lets no man control him.
His business empire fortune comes from stakes in businesses such as Ciroc Vodka, Sean John clothing line, DeLeon tequila, Aquahydrate water, and sponsorship deals. For nearly two decades, P Diddy has been one of the highest paid and most successful rappers in the world.
As you can see, there is a secret to being the richest rapper in the world. You must be good at what you are called to do, and you must be willing to work. You have to take advantage of the opportunities that present themselves to you. You can never be foolish and never be afraid. Victory comes to the brave. That is the secret to the richest rap moguls. That is what they are willing to teach you. That is, if you are brave enough to learn.
