50 Cent Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $140 Million
Curtis Jackson should not be included in the “Richest Rappers” category only, because 50 has taken his game far beyond anyone’s belief or imagination, he’s not only been able to become a great hip-hop artist, he is also an amazing businessman and actor as well. I guess I’ll have to go ahead and invent a new category for this type of people, it could be called something like “Multifaceted Millionaires”, because he is definitely a multifaceted person, he’s what Leonardo Da Vinci would call a modern day “Renaissance Man”, he’s athletic, smart, good for business, a great artist, maybe he’s even a talented scientist and we still don’t know about it.
50 Cent has had it rough, you might not remember this, but he wasn’t always rich and famous you know, in fact, for quite some time he was flat broke, he even spent some time in jail, and in the year 2000 he was shot 9 times. Luckily he survived, and short after that he became the king of hip hop. A lot of people actually think that Curtis Jackson had it easy, most people who say or argue about this don’t know squat about his life, I’m not his friend, but I am his fan though, I’ve seen his movie like 100 times, I’ve even read his book with Robert Greene called the “The 50th Law”, a publication in which he reveals a lot about his personal life and his business management skills.
50 Cent has made most of his money as a hip-hip singer, producer, actor and entrepreneur, that’s right, he’s not only made millions selling records, he’s also made millions flipping businesses, like that time when he and his business partners sold a company that they owned called “Glacéau” to Coca-Cola for $4.1 Billion dollars, that deal alone earned Curtis over $100 million dollars after taxes. More recently, Jackson founded SMS Audio, which is a brand of headphones that runs with the name “Street By 50″, and which according to several sources has had huge commercial success as well.
But, how much is 50 Cent really worth? According to several online media outlets and magazines Curtis Jackson has an estimated net worth of $260 million, however, after making our own calculations and taking into account his most recent work and earnings, we have come to the conclusion that he’s fortune is worth about $140 million dollars approximately. Forbes Magazine ranked him #5 on their 2014 Hip-Hop’s Cash Kings list, according to Forbes he’s made over $140 million from record sales, merchandise, video games, books, and the sale of VitaminWater back in 2007.
