I like how eminem basically discovered 50 cent and now he's worth over 100 mil more


50 cent made almost all of his money from his Vitamin Water investment.

But there aren't alot of rap groups out there. The good ones from the late 80's early 90's either broke up or just don't make records anymore. Everyone is out to be their own artist/brand. Groups really don't work anymore. Beastie Boys are a rare thing in rap.

I have no idea what you are responding from my post...my only point was that it's a "top 20" list, but there are 22 people/acts on it. So it's not a top 20.

I know there aren't many rap groups anymore.

Why not? Dude made a killing off of NWA and Death Row. He'd probably have more if he didn't leave death row with nothing. Suge Knight butt fricked him financially when he left death row. Dre lost the rights to everything he pretty much produced/wrote/recorded.

Think about how much shite he's written/produced. And add Beats by Dre on top of that.

I guess you're right.

Rappers and rockstars never go broke. Ever.



You made a thinly veiled racist comment saying these guys would be broke in 10 years. I bet you probably would have thought the same things 10 years ago.

He also gets a cut from everything eminem and 50 did, plus whoever else is under the interscope/aftermath umbrella.
