Sometimes, it’s not what you do, it’s how you do it.
Rapper and producer, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson who ranks No. 4 on this year’s Forbes Five’s list of the wealthiest hip-hop artists, is the epitome of building greatness from the ground up.
It’s been a decade since his debut album Get Rich or Die Trying hit the music scene with a note-worthy presence. Yet, he continues to get richer.
Now the 39-year-old entrepreneur, with an estimated net worth of $155 million, continues to ‘watch the money pile up’ as he boldly stakes new ventures outside the realms of music.
Aside from his music career, 50 has taken charge in various investments such as beverages, technology, and clothing. He owns most of his fortune to the $100 million haul from the sale of VitaminWater back in 2007.
The unique aspect of the rapper’s rising net worth certainly has more to do with what he does off-stage than what he does on the stage. This year alone, 50 started a new underwear line within days of a vodka bottle signing — and then flew to another state to promote a boxing fight. He is definitely about his business, One of his lyrics states, I get Money. Well, Yes. Yes, he does.
