Or the purpose is so thinly veiled it's the only logical conclusion. Doesn't matter though it seems most people were able to see through this in a matter of seconds.
Cool story bro...I'm not going to debate with you to make you feel better, the infograph speaks for itself.

i dont even want to know what the avg boxden person makes

Net worth and yearly salary are two different things.

Wonder which one this sloppy infographic actually meant.

They may not be comparable to the global elite, but none of the hip-hop elite's net worth is something to scoff at. I'd be happy reaching their status.

Breaking Down Centi-Millionaire 'Papa' John Schnatter's

Papa John Schnatter is no fan of Obamacare. The CEO of Papa John’s International has occasionally railed against the reform for months. Leading up to the election, he was a Mitt Romney supporter and fundraiser. Now that the election is over, he’s doubling down on his claim that the health care reform will force his company to increase pizza prices by 10-14 cents a pie. He estimates that Obamacare will end up costing his company $5-8 million annually.

Owner of Papa Johns bi*ch'in about pizza going to cost him 16 more cents a pizza so all of America can have better and cheaper healthcare.




Birdman Makes $50,000 Donation To Swizz Beatz’ Charity

After being put on the spot, Birdman donates a large sum to Swizz Beatz’ charity.

As one of the wealthiest people in Hip Hop music, placing within the top five rap earners from Forbes list earlier this year, knowing Birdman can prove valuable for one’s fundraising efforts.

Swizz Beats hosted his annual Bronx Charter School For The Arts Fundraiser this week and called the head of YMCMB live from the event, putting him on the spot for a donation.

When asked what he could donate, Birdman said “Anything for you homie… $10,000, $40,000, $50,000, whatever works for you.”

“The number you stopped on wasn’t a bad one,” Swizz replied, grabbing the $50,000 offer from Baby.

this is stupid.. you can compare anybody else in the world with the top three of the elite and they will fail..... and that list doesn't even include the 2nd wealthiest person in the world... but besides that... why don't you compare the rappers with people on bx... lets see that chart... you can group everyone here in 1 group and go against birdman... talk about that

um, how and when did I imply it bothers me? I for one am proud of any black man that overcomes insurmountable odds to achieve success...

it's a driving point towards my own success.

Diddy & Hov are WELL on their way to becoming billionaires...

on the 1st page I stated that anyone with just .01 percent of Diddy's fortune would still be rich as hell...how is that demeaning a rappers worth?

The infograph was posted because the way you hear rappers boast, they portray this false image of extremely vast wealth when it's just simply not true.

I commend Diddy, Hov & the rest of the guys on the list for their business acumen.

There are just some better businessmen out their plain & simple...black, white, green doesn't matter.
So wait 500 million is not a vast amount of wealth?.........dude please be quiet, honestly seems like there is some hate about the fact that these cats are getting it........wrf sh*ts on hundreds of millions of dollars as if it's nothing....white folks I tell you.....

Bruh are you talking about "thinly veiled" that's a popular phrase when replying to dog whistle racial tactics.

It's always incredibly amusing when people post the Kanye, Jay-Z, or another random a.ss rapper = illuminati sh*t. fu*k outta here with that 'Kanye is controlling the global markets' bullsh*t. It's retarded. If you wanna see who actually runs sh*t outside of the garbage entertainment industry then this list is a decent starting point, but by no means is it inclusive of the families who truly have influence and control of things

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.
Exactly ^^^^^
