Swizz Beatz tops annual list of highest-paid rappers

In 2015 it looked like the rapper’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (November 21) that Dean is the highest-paid rapper in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between October 2016 and October 2017, a nearly $50 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-producer has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Dean Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdean - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Kasseem) and a fashion line called “Swizz Beatz Seduction”.

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