- high school crap.. go to new york city- its very real and very serious.. i dont get why you said that, at all.. some rappers are publicity stunted to death, and use fake imagery to boost sales.. im telling you, harlem is bad..

cam was the worst rapper to have on that interview.. he doesnt sell at all, but has crazy street cred.. they should have interviewed lil wayne.. he knows B.G owns new orleans..

But you see 50 Cent is a millionaire now. He's PAST that point of his life. I know what Harlem is like and i know what street cred is all about but there's a point where you gotta realize that you're on to bigger and better things. 50 realizes what he has and he's a businessman now, so he does what he needs to do to 1). support his family, and 2). stay on top. Cam doesn't seem to realize that. Yeah in the hood you can't go tell on someone for doing illegal sh*t, but 50 lives in Connecticut now. He got OUT, and when he did that he gave up that whole "true to the streets" thing

Point is all those dudes in Harlem who are rapping, selling drugs etc...are doing it to try to GET where 50 is. Why should 50 play down to their level when they're doing eveything in their power to CATCH UP to him? He paid his dues and he grew bigger than any of them will ever be. He's bigger than Cam is, and bigger than Cam will ever be. Why? Because he grew up.

The whole "you don't know what Harlem is like" thing doesn't have sh*t to do with sh*t. There's nothing wrong with bein from the streets. What it comes down to is having the sense to get out.

I'm not sure if he's a smart business man, or got lucky... Wonder if it was his idea, or if he has someone who advises him on investment oppurtunities.

He's a smart businessman. He made a lot of money in music. Its tough to do.

In 2006, Jay Z's net worth was an estimated $350 million. He didn't have any big endeavors this year, so I don't think his net worth is much more than that.

50 cent is close to or has already passed Jay Z as the richest hip hop mogul in the world. (unless Pdiddy is richer than Hove)

jay is ceo of def jam, as far as I know he has a salary, he is looking to get bonuses for albums that do good, but as of this moment he doesnt get a % of any of these sales. Estimated worth of 350 mil, and 50 just made 400, yea sounds like 50 is the richest.

As far as street cred, once you move out of the "hood", most rappers dont have it. You have to understand that people get into rapping for the $, unlike very few rappers (how much street cred does the roots, lupe fiasco have?). If I was a rapper I would care less about street cred, but let the children hate you for not having street cred while you "laugh your way to the bank", like 50 says.

maybe you should do some research before you call me stupid...

http://nymag.com/nymetro/arts/music/pop/10869/

"Having followed the rapper’s standard diversification plan of record label and clothing line for almost a decade—adding in a Reebok sneaker—Jay-Z has amassed a net worth estimated at $286 million by Fortune magazine. "

50 Cent > Jay Z
