Most hip-hop artists don't make their millions through record sales or world tours, but through the big money business deals that come as a result of their entrepreneurial endeavours. These are some of the biggest the industry have ever seen.
MC Hammer was involved in one of the original big hip-hop money-making deals in 1990 when he got an exclusive endorsement deal with New York based British Knights for an undisclosed amount.

And a superstar he was, having spent 21 weeks with the number one album in America.
