Their work reels in nothing short of a fortune. Hip hop artists are earning in millions through their music albums and videos. However, that's not it. Their brands, endorsements, cameos, and investments add quite a few bazillion dollars to their net worth. No wonder they are living the bad and boujee life. The gamut of cars, high-end designer clothes, million-dollar mansions, and ostentatious parties are proof of that. Here are fifteen influential hip hop artists who are rolling in money.
