For several years now, it’s been assumed that rap’s first billionaire would be either Jay-Z or Diddy. Their net worth was so far ahead of Dr. Dre and 50, the next wealthiest rappers, that no one believed anyone could possibly catch up. They were wrong; they forgot about Dre (NSFW!!!):
As an NWA fan since the 80s, this makes me happy. Here’s hoping that the next billionaire rapper is either Ice Cube or Snoop.
