So, who's got the biggest dick???
According to Forbes….
In the last year alone, Jay-Z released a platinum album and signed a $150 million deal with concert promoter Live Nation for a 10 year contract.
But 50 Cent is laughing all the way to the bank!
After taxes, 50 Cent took in over $100 million when his stake in the high-calorie VitaminWater was bought by Coca-Cola.
In total, he made over $150 million in just 12 months. That's almost double what Jay-Z made last year.
Guess it helps that 50 is also involved with G-Unit clothing, video games, and films!
And, rappers today are starting to diversify more than ever before. It's not just about the music. It's about the music, the movies, clothing lines, endorsement deals. Etc. Etc.
Whatever gets them rich quicker!
After Jay-Z, coming in third on the top of the richest hip-hop artists for 2008 is Diddy - coming in third again for the second year in a row.
Diddy brought in $35 million from all his revenue streams, like his clothing line, record label, reality shows, and the vodka he doesn't like to promote, Ciroc.
And coming in fourth on the list is Kanye West who made $30 million.
Even the rappers who haven't worked in years are making millions just living off their royalties.
Like Dr. Dre who make $15 million last year. Even Tupac brought in about $15 million and he's been dead for over 10 years.
We need to drop our rap album ASAP!
