Rick Ross 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 (April 10) that Ross is the highest-paid rapper in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between March 2020 and March 2021, 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 Ross Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Carol City Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondeross - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Rick) and a fashion line called “Rick Ross Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Rick fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
