How Did The World's Wealthiest Rappers Make Their Money?
In 2011, Nicki Minaj became the first female rapper to make the Forbes Magazine’s Hip-Hop Cash Kings list with earnings of $6.5 million in the previous year. Now worth approximately $45 million, some of that money comes from 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' record and ticket sales. But the majority was from her American Idol judging fee - a huge $12,000,000. On top of that, Nicki lets the world know in her 'Monster' verse that she gets $50,000 per guest verse.
