Birdman tops annual list of highest-paid rappers

In 2019 it looked like the rapper’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (August 4) that Birdman is the highest-paid rapper in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between July 2020 and July 2021, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American rapper-business man has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Birdman Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New Orleans Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbirdman - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Birdman) and a fashion line called “Birdman Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Birdman fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
