I thought this was common knowledge. Rappers don't do what those guys do. It wouldn't make sense for them to make the same money.

So being a rapper is not being an entrepreneur ? Also rappers make far more than the average American remember? The fu*k are you talking about! How much do you make? You are comparing them to basically the 1% and are shocked at the difference?

Who said it wasn't entrepreneurship? Dudes getting saltier than a bag of Frito Lays...this is just a comparison, stop whining like a little girl. Rap fans are the most sensitive fans on the planet, one ounce of threat to the credibility of their fav artist and they ball up.

I guess you missed my post where I said we can all learn from Diddy & Hov?

That's true...Master P turned a $10,000 into a $600 million empire in all but a few years!

---------------------------------------------
Some did...some didn't.

For rappers to come from the bottom & make their way on Forbes is a hell of an accomplishment.

This just shows how small the rap industry is.

Not hating because 150 M's is great. But comparing to his fellow counter parts. How have you been running the rap game for the last 4-5 years and have the least money? Doesn't make sense. He really isn't that business savy.
It depends how you look at everything.

The rap game itself doesn't have much $ to extract considering the demographic it caters to is broke as fu*k. When I say much $, I'm comparing it to the other markets.

And, sometimes you make choices based on what you're comfortable with and what you have a passion for. If Birdman just cares about music mainly and some other tidbits a.ssociated with it, then his ceiling won't be as high as Diddy's or Jay's...not that there is anything wrong with that. Not about being business saavy, just about your interests really.

This is incorrect, over 80% of the billionaires currently in the world didn't inherit their wealth.

In a way it is, but I wouldnt consider being a rapper the purest form of entrepreneurship, At the end of the day most of these rappers needed major labels to blow up and answer to other people and have bosses. They often dont even see the bigger part of the profit of their work, even when they branch out to non-music ventures. Even the ones who venture out and do big business still answer to other people. When you can be dropped by companies, have your album shelved, be told what to do artistically, and every dollar you make , makes another man $2, then I dont really know if you can call that a true entrepreneur. Why do you think these rappers or musicians period have been calling themselves slaves all these years ??
