The music world is periodically introduced into the trance data on the earnings of famous rappers. First of all, we are talking about American rappers, since it was in America that rap was born., Here it became popular and here it reached its highest peak.
Rap is not dying, as some music experts say. On the contrary, it is becoming more and more popular. In addition, this musical genre instantly spread to most countries of the world. Now rap is popular in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
And representatives of these countries rap in French, Spanish, Russian or Portuguese… But they strive for the popularity of their American colleagues in the music industry, considering them to be the standard in this genre. Who is the richest rapper?
- Kanye West is number one in the ranking of the richest rappers in the world. His net worth is around $3.2 billion. In addition, this is the richest black man in the United States of America. According to Bloomberg, the American rapper is now worth over $6 billion, making him the richest black man in the US. The figure, however, is disputed by Forbes economics magazine, which gives a different figure. Kanye West did not win the presidential election. But he will have no problem financing a future campaign. Kanye West recently announced that he would run in the 2024 presidential election. I would like to note that the capital of the popular artitsa is growing at a hypertempo. Three years ago, there was not even one billion dollars.
- In second place is also the American rapper Jay Z. His net worth is estimated at $1.8 billion. However, estimates from different sources differ markedly. Mr. Carter was the first rapper to join the very narrow circle of this world’s billionaires. In 2019, Forbes magazine estimated his net worth at $1 billion. Because if his TIDAL platform wasn’t the success he expected, Jay-Z could still count on his Roc Nation label to blow up his bank account. Indeed, the label is made up of many headliners in the music scene such as Big Sean, J Cole and Rihanna. However, most of the rapper’s fortune is really his colossal business and investments. Among other things, he is a co-owner of a chain of bars and owns several nightclubs. He also developed the Roc Nation Sport branch specializing in sports management. He also owns a lot of real estate and has invested in a range of businesses of all kinds from which he earns income. Suffice it to say that Beyoncé’s husband did his best, and it goes without saying that it works.
- Diddy, aka Sean Combs, is the third richest rapper in the world. Long remained in first place in this ranking, the mogul was finally overtaken by the one who was his number one competitor for the position of “richest” – Kanye West, who, in turn, overtook him. Thus, he ended up in 3rd place. But thanks to a $145 million jump since 2019, Puff finds himself with an estimated net worth of $885 million, said to be close to a billion. And, like his colleagues, his music is not the driving force behind his income.
