There are a lot of loaded rappers out there, and the music they’ve made has definitely opened up a lot of doors for them in the world of business. Believe it or not, most of our favorite rappers actually make more money outside of their own music than they do from album sales. We decided to round up some of those big names that make more money from outside ventures than their own music.
Check out the rappers who made more money NOT rapping on the following pages.
Nas may not sell platinum albums in his first week of sales anymore, but the rapper has heavily invested into many tech start-up’s, restaurants, on top of owning Mass Appeal and his HSTRY clothing line.
Future is starting to make a lot of bread off of his music, but he actually makes way more off of touring, appearances, and even a fresh new deal with Nike that has featured him in multiple commercials.
