When it comes to hip-hop, bragging about your riches is a part of the game. In 50 Cent’s “I Get Money,” the rapper famously said, “I took quarter water sold it bottles for two bucks / Coca-Cola came and bought it for billions,” after Coca-Cola bought Vitamin Water. Other rappers such as Jay Z, P Diddy and Drake love to rap about their business ventures, showing off how much money they have.

But if you’re wondering how much your favorite rapper is worth, you’ll be surprised to find out that the number is usually a lot less or more than you would expect. With estimated values from Forbes, Celebrity Net Worth and Money Nation, here are net worths of some of your favorite hip-hop stars.

Quavo – $2 Million

As a group, Migos is worth an estimated $4 million, but it’s star member is worth half of that. In 2015, the group was bringing in about $40,000 per appearance. The following year, it went up to $65,000.

Remy Ma – $3 Million

While hip-hop fans have joked about the “shETHER” rapper’s net worth, Remy Ma isn’t doing too bad for herself. The rapper reportedly makes upwards of $25,000 per episode just for being a cast member on VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop: New York.”

Desiigner – $5 Million

He may have bought the beat for “Panda” for only $200 but New York rapper Desiigner definitely has a few more dollars now to afford beats from some of hip-hop’s biggest producers.

Chance The Rapper – $5 Million

As an independent artist who’s released all of his albums for free, Chance The Rapper doesn’t have the luxury of making money of record sales, but he makes up for it with tours and merchandise. Plus, he signed a pretty nice deal with Apple Music last year for a two-week exclusive worth $500,000.
