50 Cent, Almost As Rich As Oprah

Oprah Winfrey always comes first on the list of Top Earning African American Stars by Forbes. But, did ya know Fiddy came in second this year????

The list was compiled from the amount of money celebs made between June 2007 through June 2008.

According to Forbes, 50 Cent brought in about $150 million during that year, ranking him just after Momma O.

Though we doubt Fiddy made much money off his music career.

That Vitamin Water he invested in definitely paid out!

He also has his clothing line and video games bringing in some cash.

But could 50 ever top Oprah? (Not literally, of course.)

Turns out the rap mogul has recently launched a film company. He's also planning to launch his own line of dietary supplements.

And with all that money he's making, we hope 50 Cent is giving back to the community, just like Oprah does.

    He's not obligated to GIVE BACK to the community. If he chooses to do so, that's his business. As for Oprah giving to the community, she makes so much that the more she "gives" the more of a tax break she gets. And she gets sponsors to pay for much of what you see her giving out on her show. People think it's ALL coming out of her pocket but that's not true.

    I don't care what anyone says or thinks, this guy has way too much money and way too little talent.

    First!

    Nothing wrong with being altruistic when you're successful, quite the contrary. But it should come out of his own initiative, not because of that stupid notion that rich people 'owe' something to the community just because they're successful.

    Can't you at least give the guy props without sucking Oprah's dick?

    And he can't buy his baby-mama a house? What a dick!

    Actually he does give back to the community. He's currently working on a gardening project in my neighborhood to get the kids to eat healthy for free. All we have are bodegas and junk food. 50 cares about the children of Brooklyn!

    Giving money to his type is about as productive as giving a new Mercedes to a monkey, neither one knows what to do with it. Before long he will be just as busted as the rest of the has beens?



  21. 21

    Isn't there a Word for his type if they get a little money in their pocket? I know there is I just can't remember it? Something Rich is all I can recall?

    Re: Belerofonte – i totally agree with you, society puts this pressure on the rich that they owe something to everyone. i agree they should help if they want to, most people are good and they do help.
    like oprah says it feels good to give without wanting anything in return. makes us a better person



  23. 23

    wow maybe he should change his name



  24. 24

    YOU KNOW WHAT HE ENJOYS A TOKE NOW AND THEN AND HIS SPONSERS DON'T SEEM TO MIND. 50 CENT JUST DOES NOT WORRY ABOUT IT AND KNOWS HOW TO KEEP HIS MONEY.



  25. 25

    What awonderfull country this is ,when monkeys can earn as much as humans.

    I'm surprised that he was ahead of that other douche, Diddy. How come the #2 person wasn't somebody with talent?
