  • Roc

    Damn, 50 fell off. Only 125 dollars.

    • PL

      What was your net worth last year?

      • Eny Daboss

        and you how much he pays you

      • PL

        not a dime…and I don’t pay him either…never bought a CD from any of his artist or bought a bottle of Ciroc…

        -lol @ $125

        -even tho that’s a typo…I don’t think earning $125 million in a year is “falling off”

      • Eny Daboss

        i mean it is cause that money didnt change since 2002 so yes it is ….all his ventures went down

      • Bumpy Johnson

        50 was worth the same in 02??? i dont think so bro.

      • Eny Daboss

        yes cuz that was his coca cola deal and the reebok 2

      • wickedjones


      • It’s net work, not annual earnings.

      • Roc

        More than $125 dollars. For the slow people, peep the typo in the article. *smh*

    • dominicancoke

    • $18592567


    • Tony G.

      • Roc

        Learn to read. You missed the joke trying to be a G-unit Warrior.


      YEAH HE IS NOT MAKING AS MUCH … But for a guy with a 10 year old career having as much as Birdman or even being on the same list is such a short period of time is a huge achievement

  • Dwayne Nvo

    send that money to africa

    • Bumpy Johnson

      theyre train of thought dont stretch that far.

      • “You got rich when you started sling dope, but you ain’t built us a supermarket, so we can spend our money with the Blacks, too busy buying gold & Cadillacs” Ice Cube – US

      • A very great example when rappers don’t act according to what they preach. Most money is spend for useless consumer goods. just to show for face value. We should produce our own consumer products and not consume other people’s products. The world needs a balance. Apart from some few exceptions blackman is still the least productive on earth.
        Just good at talking, bad when it comes to executing a plan. So respect to all those who made it and inspire others to not become a dumbass like most rappers show.

      • Rich people stay rich, by living like they are broke, while broke people stay broke by living like they are rich!

        We are perpetual consumers. Yeah, we talk revolution, but won’t talk toilet paper, rather the manufacturing capabilities to produce it.

        What good is freedom if you can’t wipe your @$$?

      • NEWSKULL

        Thank you!… I know why it is so hard for blackmen to produce their own consumer products… we are focused on easy, fast money… Actually that’s what is promoted the most, that’s what they want us to be focused on… From the street (drugs) to this rappers/athletes/actors… Black people it is all smoke… long term money is the best money… Producing creates Jobs, and although it takes 5-10 years to see a result, the rewards are greater…

        The other problem with blackmen is love… We don’t like each other… True Story… Just read all the hate on this page… Talking smacks about Diddy because he ripped of so many artists… Nigga Please! White folks been doing that shit 400 YEARS BEFORE HIM even RIGHT NOW but y’all don’t complain…. we don’t like the brother next to us to succeed and when he does niggas becomes leechs instead of supporters (Allen Iverson, MC Hammer,Whitney Houston,Micheal Jackson)… We can’t even work together (Jay-Z/ R.Kelly, Mayweather/50 Cent, Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj) …

        WHAT A SHAME!… why all these black wealthy motherfuckers can’t work together to reach the goal to have a very wealthy community, a powerfull lobby a la Jews… Only complaints of a wealthy community can be heard loud and clear… And we still here thinking buying a benz or a lambo makes us special…keep on feeding the right people… What is worse it is trending worldwide blackmen all over the world are doing the same mistakes…
        Education is also another problem… not enough black engineer or food scientist out there….

      • PL

        Death Certificate! Greatest hip hop album of all time IMO…so many classic quotes from that album…Ice Cube was Negrodamus…

      • REAL SPILL!

      • Bumpy Johnson

        damn thats real talk….i remember my homeboi back in the day. he never spend his money on shit but jordans, rims, and golds…n he was callin me tellin me how he cant go to school coz they charge too much n he already messed up on financial aid… forget the community , niggas dont even know how to spend money on their self……explaining all the niggas with S classes, caddys and old schools on 8000$ rims outside of their mama’s busted ass house.

      • You can’t spend dirty money on durable goods. IE: House, etc.

        Peep how none of the wealthiest artist made their money from music?

        If Donald Trump or Oprah dropped a rap…they would be the wealthiest rapper!

    • Choppa

      U send some of your money to Africa.. Focus on u

      • Bumpy Johnson

Not how much hes made off selling over 30 million copies, 200 million to finance movies, clothes, boxing company,SMS Audio, G-Unit records, films, the percentage of SK Energy…etc. All amassed to 100 Mil plus???? ok keep believing these clowns
