It might sound interesting to you but the hip-hip rappers are making more money than any hard-working Banker or a wonderful engineer these days. In early times, music was always taken as an ingredient for recreation but now things are different! In order to become successful, it’s compulsory that you start thinking how to make money in everything you do. And that’s what the Rappers these days are doing. It’s important to mention here that these rappers are not only making money for themselves but are also getting so much of fame, success and popularity.

According to the authentic news published at Forbes, the Following are the top 10 richest Rappers of 2012.

1. Shawn”Jay-Z” Carter                                                                                                                $37 Million

One of the most financially successful hip hop artists and entrepreneurs in America,Jay-Z, is a rapper, record producer, entrepreneur, and occasional actor.

6. Marshall “”Eminem” Mathers                                                                                              $ 14 Million


Eminem, doesn’t tour as much as other rappers and his outside businesses are limited. He is solely rated in the list because of his music’s income is enough for that! He is really a popular one!

7. Andre “Dr. Dre” Young                                                                                                             $14 Million


He has a net worth of $ 300 Million. He is one of the extraordinary producers and rappers at the same time. He keeps bringing money In cash , namely from producer fees, Beats by Dre, HP laptop line and his lucrative headphone venture.

8. Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Broadus                                                                                        $14 Million

Snoop Dogg -

9. Aliuane “Akon” Thiam                                                                                                              $13 Million


Need an introduction? Certainly not! The Senegalese American Singer, song writer, producer and what not!

10. Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges                                                                                     $12 Million


Another self proclaimed voice of the south, makes money apart from music. In 2011, he earned really great by movie roles include fast five, no Strings Attached and New Year’s Eve.

It is really interesting if you start thinking how these popular names are making money, you will actually find so much within yourself that can make you one of them too. I personally believe that all of us have something in ourselves – the X factor, those who figure it out , becomes one of those we just discussed, and those who keep their capabilities down inside them, earn nothing but a monthly salary.

Finding yourself with trial and errors, one day you will see, you can make more name than any other richest person on the Charts!

All the best!
