Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings

by Minority Fortune

jayzpdidsThe fact that Forbes is broadcasting hip hop revenues shows that the industry generates serious dough. While the top 20 list only totals $300 million this year, it reveals how much more money must be trading behind the scenes. It’s no secret.

Artists aren’t masters in wealth, but they can attract and create it.

The key in the industry is to diversify, lead your career, and rake in the investments. Hip hop icon Jay Z brought in $35 million this year by doing just that. Others that triumphed this year are 50 Cent, Akon, and Lil Wayne. We hope they master the art to growing their wealth and not blowing it all. Jay Z and 50 Cent seem to understand this lesson well.
