It may come as a shock to some of you but Eminem is one of the top 5 richest rappers with a net worth of 210 million dollars. And that is because he is still one of the world’s selling rappers.
Most of Eminem’s net worth comes from the money he earns off of his albums- he also makes a nice chunk of change from his record label- Shady Records and from his acting roles.
4. Master P
This rapper’s net worth is estimated to be 250 million. This man is a true entrepreneur- this former basketball player turned rapper and producer used a 10 thousand dollar inheritance to open a record store which then grew into a record label- which eventually grew into a business empire that has stakes in telecommunications all the way to real estate.
3. Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre has an estimated net worth of 740 million dollars. Most of his income comes from Beats electronics. Dre co-founded this company and then in 2014 he sold it to Apple for 3 billion dollars.
And the cut that Dre got from this deal gave him the largest single- year payday ever recorded by a living musician. And because of this smart business move now he just gets to sit back and watch the cash flow in.
Just day after this deal was made official Dre purchased a 14 thousand square foot LA mansion for 40 million dollars. Which sounds like an insane purchase- and it was.
But this man must have got hit with the lucky stick because now according to government records his mansion is now worth nearly 20 percent more than he paid.
Jay Z has a net worth of 810 million. Although has a great rapper it was actually his business career that makes up the largest sum of his net worth.
His stakes in Rocawear- Armand de Brignac Champagne and Tidal largely contribute to his fortune. But like I said this man is also an amazing rapper and he actually holds the record for the most albums by a solo artist to hit number one on the Billboard charts.
On top of that it’s estimated that along with his wife Beyonce’s net worth the couple are actually billionaires with their combined net worth equalling up to 1.16 billion according to Forbes.
1. Sean Combs
From what I found on Forbes Diddy is currently the world’s richest rapper with a net worth of 820 million dollars. This man is not only an amazing rapper has also a songwriter- actor- record producer- and quite the impressive business man.
While his wealth mainly comes from his music and clothing line he also made smart investments and has stakes in companies like Ciroc Vodka- Revolt TV and Aquahydrate. He started off with Humble beginings as a director of A and R at Uptown Records.
Soon after he set out on his own and started his own label called Bad Boy Records and he signed on huge talent such as Mariah Caret- Boys 2 men- Lil Kim and more. And there you have it that’s our list of the Top 5 Richest Rappers in the World 2021.
