"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


Robert L Johnson is the other billionare african american, part owner of the bobcats, founder of BET

I don't pay attention to hip-hop that much anymore, but who's the richest rapper? Jay-Z, Diddy, 50?

I don't know how he ever pulled off a 10% cut though. that's insanely high. seriously overpaid for that... unless he sells only vitamin water at his concerts or something.

Perhaps "vitamin water" gave him 10 percent because he is one of the most recognizable rappers of all time. Stick him on every bill board with him holding a bottle of vitamin water while semi flixing his guns is a great vision for an ad. Not to mention these ads have been around for years in the cities so this was a work in process. Eithen know I hate 50 Cent, I must give him his props for this one. Seems like both companies made out like a bandit.

You'd be stupid to think 50 ain't a smart business man. He talks all crazy just to throw people off. He has made one helluva run to the top. 5 years ago he was just some dude at the bottom of the mix tape track list. He swagger jacked Ja Rule, exchange friendship bracelets with Eminem and here you have today a money making machine. Sh*t he even created enough buzz for his weed carriers to drop platinum albums. He knows gorilla style marketing. Maybe the name Gorilla Unit is not so meaningless after all. He gets my props.
