Kodak Black tops annual list of highest-paid rappers
In 2018 it looked like the rapper’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (June 19) that Kodak Black is the highest-paid rapper in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between May 2020 and May 2021, a nearly $40 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 $215 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 Kodak Black Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Pompano Beach Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderkodak Black - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Kodak Black) and a fashion line called “Kodak Black Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Kodak Black fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
