Until 2015, 50 Cent was regarded as one of the biggest moguls in the hip hop industry. Already, the top hip hop cash king list always had Jay Z and Diddy at the top. But, around 2007, 50 Cent began to be in that conversation.
The Vitamin Water deal took 50 Cent from just being another rapper to being a smart business figure. However, his former boss, Dr. Dre, would make the list and eclipse them all with the Apple deal. A year later would see 50 Cent file for bankruptcy.
Throughout the entire ordeal, 50 Cent would continue sharing stacks of cash on his Instagram. He would even take stacks to spell “broke” out in the floor of one of his houses. Now, news has broken of 50 Cent taking $22 million in cash to pay off his debt, using $8.7 million from his personal finances, and $13.65 million from funds paid from his lawsuit against his lawyer.
