Gucci Mane tops annual list of highest-paid rappers
In 2016 it looked like the rapper’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (March 24) that Mane is the highest-paid rapper in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between February 2018 and February 2019, a nearly $30 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 has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Mane Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Bessemer Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermane - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Gucci) and a fashion line called “Gucci Mane Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Gucci fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
