The world of music is exciting and not so very well known to us. Sure, we can see what happens when the music stars come out for the press or at a concert. But what do they do behind the scenes? That is something we can’t afford to know all that well, and we usually don’t, unless we are a hard-core fan of that star. Every now and then, a random piece of information is going to leak out about a certain star and allow us to know more about them. Some of the information is actually available officially, but most fans are actually interested in the personal lives of these people.
One of the things which is commonly encountered in the official data that you can see about a star is their salary. It has been said that you are how much you are worth. If that is true, then a lot of these stars have a lot of potential to become very big earners. Most profoundly, the biggest turnovers happen in the rap section. It is also the most competitive genre of music, and because of its violent themes, you will often find the artists from there are representing a certain gang or taking up certain behavior.
If you might be interested to see who was the king of the rap scene and who makes the most of the cash, the first thing you need to know is that the competition is huge and it seems unbeatable. You can generally share rappers into two different categories. You have the old-school ones which have been around for more than a decade and have already done the hard part of the work by breaking the ice and reaching out to the audience and you have the new generation rappers, the people who are just looking to make their name and might or might not make a career.
Some of the names from the older generation are certainly going to be very familiar to you, while the new generation people are not likely to leave the impression of that sort just yet. The earnings of hip-hop artists and their music making are huge. And they are really massive. So much so that they can afford big cars and houses without any sweat and still manage to pay their fees and have enough money left over for whatever they want to get. Just to prove a point, it has been estimated that Jay z’s net worth reaches and even surpasses the $500 million benchmark and continues to rise. Based on how well situated he is right now, one day he might be worth an entire billion all by himself. He is not planning to retire yet and end his career, so the potential of the success he can make is still not measured out yet. He can climb even higher and earn even more.
