I Wanna Be A Billionaire…

September 2, 2011 in Daily Bulletin

In “Billionaire” Travie McCoy and Bruno Mars sing about their burning desire to become billionaires. As it turns out, they’re working in the wrong field and should switch jobs if they want their dream to become a reality. Forbes recently compiled a list of the five wealthiest hip hop artists. Number one is Sean “Diddy” Combs who somehow manages to scrape by with a little less than half a billion dollars. At the very bottom of the list is the disingenuously named “50 Cent”. With a $100 million that man has enough 50 cent coins for the entire population of Brazil. The others on the list include:

  • Jay-Z ($450 Million)
  • Dr. Dre ($125 Million)
  • Birdman ($100 Million)
