The Richest Rappers In the World
Net worth: $350 million
Real name: Percy Miller
Date of birth: April 29 1970
Although Master P - or should I say Percy Miller? - has enjoyed untold successes with his rap albums which sold millions of copies, it could be said that his tremendous wealth could be due to other sources. He is currently sitting on an estimated net worth of $350 million, but he has dipped his entreprenurial finger into just about every proverbial pie. From record producing to clothing to NBA basketball teams to real estate to just about anything and everything that you can imagine, Master P has been there, done that and got the dollar.
Net worth: $550 million
Real name: Shawn Carter
Date of birth: December 4 1969
Born in New York, little did the world know what great things little Shawn Carter would go on to achieve. Now known as Jay-Z, he has sold over 75 million records and received 19 Grammy Awards for his hip hop records to date. As such, he has collaborated with some of the best names on the planet - it would be impossible to mention them all as there are simply too many! He has also dabbled in business and fashion (he founded the Rocawear clothing label) to name just a couple of his other interests outside of music. It is estimated that his net worth currently sits at somewhere around $550 million. As if all that wasn't enough to make you jealous, he's also the husband to the stunning superstar Beyoncé.
