    Richest female rappers


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    I was watching a Youtube video and it showcased top 10 richest female rappers. One of the richest female rappers is MC Lyte she is at 8 million dollars. The richest female MC from that video was Missy Elliot which she is at 251 million dollars.

    Wow... Lyte has been out of the game for decades... How did she get caked up like that. I am shocked to see. That shocked me about as much as finding out Janet Jackson and Raven Simone made over a BILLION dollars each, they silently passed up damn near the whole industry.

    Wow, I never thought to hear those names. I mean, maybe a some years ago, they were making a lot, but now??? Are we talking about rich from album and tickets sales or does this include everything else? If so, I guess I can see Janet Jackson. I think she has her hands in different pots. And she just married a wealthy middle easterner, I think.

    Neither Janet Jackson nor Raven Symone made over $1.0 billion each, especially not the latter. Jackson's entire career produced over $1 billion, but not all of that went to her. In fact, Symone is worth less than $60 million at the moment.

    Janet Jackson probably made all of her money because of her brother MJ I bet! I am shocked to see the list so low though, I would think more females would want to get into the game.

    I am amazed with the sums that both males and females rappers achieve, the music industry is huge, I wish I could have some talent in the singing area.

    I hate this last, it's so outdated. Janet Jackson probably is the highest because her brother is MJ, but still she's not that rich.

    Its ridiculous how much they make as well as sports figures. They earned it but I would rather see teachers, fire, and police make a lot more. Entertainers and athletes are not comparable.

    It's true, the entertainment industry is the better paid in the whole world, good to know that at least some rappers are there.

    Pay for any profession is dictated by the market, and that's how American society works. Teachers, police officers, and others deserve more pay, sure, but it's not ridiculous at all how much entertainers and sports figures make. For instance, some baseball players get paid $30 million per season because the owner of that franchise makes hundreds of millions owning that team. A rapper or other musical artist banks millions because fans go en masse to their concerts and pay top dollar for them.

    Under capitalism, such a weird situation makes perfect sense.

    I'm not shocked at either of these. Lyte might be out of the spotlight but at the end of the day we all have to remember that female rappers practically started with her and Queen Latifah. Missy has her moments where she pops in and out of the industry, however she is still here.
    I don't know what Raven and Janet were doing, but they surely missed out.

    Well Missy and MC Lyte sound like they also know the business aspect of hip hop. I think they are worth the amount they are worth because they know how to make money being independent and owning parts of the industry. Not to mention having your own company like a good clothing line could help.

    Missy Eliot! wow I never thought she would be up there, but that is good, she does have some good stuff, with Missy it makes alot of sense but with Mc Lyte, I do not get it, how is hse up there yet she has not been in the game, well maybe she was saving up.

    I'm not surprise Missy ranks number 1 on the list in terms of richest female MCs. She is a business woman who did a lot of production for other artists, many of it included songwriting. Missy also have ventures away from the music business, which helps her pocket books. I've always liked Missy because her music was really about the craft of hip hop.
