Jay-Z Is Right: Most Rappers Are Lying About Their Money (Nas Lost)
 

 
Fresh off of Jay-Z’s new album is the track Versus, on which he chides fellow hip-hop artists and their dubious tales of extraordinary wealth: “The truth in my verses, versus, your metaphors about what your net worth is.” Like Jay-Z, we’ve long been skeptical of just how wealthy some hip-hop stars claim to be, so we created a way to separate the truly rich from the loud-mouth lyricists.

Scroll over each bar in the chart below to compare specific lyrics with data from Forbes’s annual “Cash Kings of Hip Hop” report from the same year the given artist’s net worth-related rap song was released. You’re welcome, Hova.
