Wiz Khalifa 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 Thursday (October 22) that Khalifa is the highest-paid rapper in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between September 2019 and September 2020, 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 Khalifa Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Minot Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderkhalifa - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Wiz) and a fashion line called “Wiz Khalifa Seduction”.

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