Consuming wealth has become a stated goal for many rappers. As a result, the public tends to be interested in exactly how much money Hip Hop stars actually have.
One way people check on the financial status of rappers is by googling their net worth.
For example, if you search for Lil Wayne’s net worth online, the result claims the Young Money boss is worth around $150 million.
Wayne actually refuted that report during an interview with The Nine Club.
But instead of boasting that his net worth was actually much higher, the “Rich As F-ck” performer admitted $150 million is not a completely accurate representation.
“Honestly, I’m gonna let everybody know now – so when you go check motherf-ckers’ net worth and that sh-t be saying some crazy numbers – I don’t have a cent close to that sh-t,” stated Wayne. “But I guess they be meaning that’s what I’m worth.”
The New Orleans-born rhymer later added, “They are smart, so they know what they’re talking about. It’s motivation. It’s just motivation.”
There is a difference between net worth, income, and savings. Net worth is the value of your personal assets minus all liabilities or debt. Income is the sum of all the wages, salaries, and profits collected in a certain time period.
