It’s becoming natural for many hip-hop artists to also become very successful entrepreneurs, and it doesn’t matter if they didn’t have it or not before they started rapping.
Some of my favorite investments are:
Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella
Sean Combs and The World
Jermaine Dupri, The L.A. Times
Other investing that I have made but aren’t as successful is that I invested in a company called Vibes World Records.
Top 10 Rappers Who Became Entrepreneurs
Jay Z’s Tidal, Drake’s OVO platform, Snoop’s Tha G-Unit streaming service, Eminem’s Shady TDE platform, Rick Ross, Jay Z’s new streaming platform with Samsung, 50 Cent’s newly launched streaming service, Young Money’s Cash Money Records’s new streaming platform, Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang streaming platform, and most recently Jay Z’s newest project, Blackberry.
Most of these rappers had real jobs before rapping. They started rapping just to make money.
1. Jay-Z (Shawn Carter)
Jay-z’s net worth is over one billion dollars, according to Celebrity Net Worth. He’s the first rapper to cross that billion dollar milestone, and he has done it through his business ventures such as Roc Nation and the 40/40 Club, as well as his ownership of the Brooklyn Nets.
I think this is most likely the cause of his death. He was an empire, and he wanted to create his own empire.
Jay-Z has made some real money with his ventures. He opened a few bars and restaurants, and started his own record label Roc-A-Fella Records. He has also developed his Rocawear clothing line.
Jay-Z has always been an entrepreneur of the music industry. Since he started the Roc-A-Fella Entertainment in the 1990s, he has been on a steady climb towards the top.
By using his art to build his brand; he’s proven that selling his artwork can be a legitimate business, even if he also offers other services.
2. 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson)
50 Cent is an extremely successful entrepreneur. The same rules that apply to any other successful entrepreneur apply to 50 Cent.
50 Cent has a net worth of about $20 million.
He has made millions in the music industry.
He was also an early investor in Vitamin Water, which is a sports drink. He got 5% of the company for endorsement. He made a lot of money off the deal.
He lived in what was then seen as the most expensive home in America at the time, a 16 story apartment in Manhattan’s Trump Place, at Fifth Avenue and 51st Street.

3. Dr. Dre (Andre Young)

‘The first line’ released in 2008, they became the most fashionable headphones ever made.
There is no reason to ever wear a pair of Converse All-Stars unless you are an athlete, a celebrity or are a punk.
The brand was first designed as a brand that offered different styles and different colors of headphones, but the company really got going with the Tour series and the Solo series. The Solo headphones are a good set of headphones for people who use wired headphones. These headphones use an in-line mixer, and they offer a lot of control over them. The Tour headphones are good for people who use Bluetooth headphones because they have a longer range than other Bluetooth headphones.
4. Diddy (Sean Combs)
Â In fact, Apple has been a very successful investor in the music industry for a while now. This time, the company bought not only the headphone and music company, but also Beats, which produces music production software.

Kanye was a bit of a fashionista in the 90’s and, though he has released a fashion line since then, he still has a huge influence.
After the release of Yeezy Season Five in November 2017, Kanye has done a lot more business with Kanye West, the company, than with Yeezy Season Five.
6. Master P (Percy Robert Miller)
Percy had a real passion for business with a degree in business from Louisiana State University. He has had success as a music artist, actor and was a successful business owner.
Master P has so many investments that it’s hard to keep track of all of them, which is why he invests in businesses through his Cash Money Records, clothing line, sports management firm, and even his jewelry line.
Miller had an extremely busy schedule during the year 2000 thanks to his various businesses, including the ‘No Limit’ company. He had two companies, ‘No Limit’ and ‘The Miller Group’, that were both big corporations in the music industry.
It is estimated that Master P’s net worth is $350 million, but I think he can get more.
