How many platinum-selling rappers have you heard waxing lyrical about being stuck in their overdraft and sticking some inheritance money away in an ISA?
That’s right: zero.
For if rappers aren’t rich, they’re getting rich. And should you be wondering just how much money one of the most successful rap artists could withdraw at a moment’s notice, take a look at The Game’s Instagram feed.
Posting a screenshot of a $500,000 donation to a charity fighting a water crisis in Michigan, the musician also casually let slip how much he has sitting in the bank: $13,274,585.32. Imagine all the Pret Sandwiches you could buy with that once you've converted it into shiny pound coins.
What's more, the account shown belongs to his charity, meaning that the rapper probably has even more piles of cash somewhere with which to make more philanthropic gestures.
As the saying goes, don’t hate the player, hate The Game.
