Who Is the Richest Rapper?

Who Is the Richest Rapper?

Rap has produced some of the richest artists in any musical genre. While riding around in a Bentley and hanging out in mansions is common in Rap music videos, it begs the question: Which of these flashy musicians actually have the dough to back it up? Here are some of the richest rappers in the game today.

#1: Jay Z or Kanye West

RapTV reports that it’s too close to call whether Jay or Kanye West has a greater net worth. Both are billionaires, but it’s difficult to determine who has more because their assets are tied up in such different interests. Jay-Z’s finances are certainly more liquid and more diverse. The majority of Kanye West’s money, on the other hand, is tied up in his luxury shoe brand Yeezy. If West’s shoes keep doing as well as they have been, he may end up being the richest musician to ever live. But, if the shoes slip or something ends up tanking his brand, that could dramatically decrease his net worth. Jay Z, however, does seem to have that kind of volatility. But he also doesn’t currently have his hands on a brand or businesses with as much potential as Yeezy. With potential comes risk.

#2: Diddy

Diddy was on his businessman game before doing so was cool. With his Sean John clothing line, Diddy showed long ago that Rappers and Hip Hop artists could go beyond just making music to expand into new and even more lucrative territories. While Diddy has sold much of his ownership in Sean John, today he still has a large and active interest in Cîroc vodka as well as other business ventures which put his net worth at between 700 and 900 million.

#3: Dr. Dre

Considered the greatest Hip Hop music producer of all time, Dr. Dre is also one of the founding members of the legendary and groundbreaking Rap group “NWA.” And, while Dre made plenty of money in front of the mic, he did a lot more behind it. Through a number of business ventures, Dre managed to make around 800 million dollars, although the sum may be lower, it is most definitely not less than, 500 million because RapTV reports that is how much he is believed to have profited from the deal his headphones company made with Apple a few years back.

#4: Russell Simmons

Russell Simmons is another Hip Hop artist turned entrepreneur. After co-founding legendary Hip Hop label Def Jam Recording, Simmons went on to specialize in clothing brands like Phat Farm, Argyleculture, and Tantris, which all seem to have longevity to stick around and keep earning Simmons income for a long time to come.

#5: Eminem

Eminem has at least a few hundred million. Probably somewhere over 200. But, unlike the other artists on this list, Eminem doesn’t have nearly as many business ventures going on other than his music. Rather than getting involved in other endeavors, Eminem mostly chooses to focus on his music and touring. With that said, Eminem certainly has a number of investments going for him because you can’t just keep that many millions tucked away under your couch. But, for someone who mostly only creates music, you got to give it to Eminem, the guy has sold a TON of albums!

Many types of entertainment and art produce rich individuals. But rap, in particular, has been successful. Rap artists have branded, not just their music, but the clothes they wear, the water they drink, and even their scents to amass serious fortunes. There’s no telling what money-making ventures rappers will think of next!

5 Must Have Pullovers

Sweater Pullover Dresses

It’s no secret that keeping up with all the latest fashion trends and statements can be a challenging task. The trends are changing just as fast as the seasons are and staying up to date can seem like it’s burning a hole in your wallet or that your closet is constantly filling up with all of last season’s pieces. The secret is to keep the basics and don’t be afraid to wear what you have in different ways. You don’t always have to go looking for the next best thing because chances are it’s already in your closet. For example, the pullover is a timeless piece of clothing that will never go out of style. If you’ve never heard of pullover before, it’s essentially another word for a sweater. It’s a piece of clothing you “pull over” your head to get it on. Pullovers can be worn all year long as the variety is endless. With that said, rather than buying a new pullover every few months, consider keeping these 5 must haves in your closet to rotate out over time.

Crew Neck

The most common pullover is the crew neck. A crew neck pullover is one that has a rounded neckline and comes with no collar. Without a doubt, it’s the most popular pull over that can be worn all year long. The majority of the time these crew neck pullovers are light in fabric and breathable making them great for layering up in the winter or keeping it simple in the summer.  In the past, crew neck pullovers were intended to be layered, but these days it can easily be the star of the outfit if worn by itself.

Quarter Zip

A quarter zip pullover is essentially a jacket, but the zipper only comes about a quarter down from the neckline making it a pullover rather than a jacket. The reason we love these is because they provide comfort, coverage, and style all in one. They can be worn in so many different ways and come in a variety of styles such as with or without a collar. Keeping one of these in your closet will always leave you with a go-to and something you can always rely on when you’re in a time crunch or looking for something to complete your casual look.

Turtleneck

Turtleneck pullovers are the perfect pullover for layering which is why you always need to have one in your wardrobe. Just about everyone layers up at some point during the year so being able to grab one of these and layer on another favorite pullover, sweater, or vest can create a great look without overdoing it especially if you’re looking for a pullover that isn’t as loose fitting.

Oversized Knit

One of our favorite pullover styles is the oversized knitted pullover. Who doesn’t have a favorite chunky sweater? You should definitely own a couple of these in all of your favorite colors. You can find oversized knit pullovers with a variety of necklines which is why they’re the perfect put-on-and-go type of shirt. You can find oversized knit pullovers with a turtle neckline, crew neckline, and even a v-neckline. Whatever your favorite is, there’s an option for you.

Pullover Dress

This isn’t your typical pullover, but definitely one to not be missed. The pullover dress is a must have in everyone’s wardrobe. It pairs perfectly with boots or flats depending on the time of year and even better, it can be dressed up for an event or dressed down for a casual day in town. Our two favorite pullover dress styles are the turtleneck and V-neck style.
