    Default Rappers turned investment mogul

    We reported last year that late rapper Tupac hid the fact that he studied Shakespeare because he didn't want to compromise his street cred.
    Now, we have a thugged out rapper who is also hiding a secret.
    He discreetly studied investment manuals and became adaptive in investing large sums of money within his online stock account.
    And, he's become an investment wizard with very lucrative overseas investments. He also has an "immediate annuity," set up that pays him a five figure monthly salary as well.
    At the rate he's going, he should already be set for life, financially.
    He had considered lecturing other rappers on money management but at the last minute he decided against it because it may compromise his street cred, as we mentioned earlier.
    Sadly, he continues to keep his financial savvy a secret because he doesn't want to be considered a "NERD" in rap circles.

    ^I don't think that this is about Sean Carter (jay-z). He would be rapping all about it. Also, he's the CEO of a HUGE record he's been getting a "five figure monthly salary" & telling us all about it for years.
    I think it's Pharrel Williams. He's in a band called N.E.R.D. I don't know how "thugged" out I would call him ,though.

    Everyone knows about 50's investments. Jay z is a known businessman. Pharrell has no street cred. lol

    I guessed ont he other thread that is was Ludacris because he did a song with Pharrell. Now, I am thinking Lil Jon, who is very well educated and is rumored to have a degree in economics.

    I think it's sad that he won't tell others about his investments and stuff because other rappers (and their fans) need to know about building wealth and investing, because the music industry is littered with tales about rappers being flat broke and that a Plan B is needed.

    But anyway...

    I don't know if it's 50 either because he may come off as a dimwit thug, but he's well known for his business and marketing savvy. I know that whole story about him making $400 million from the Vitamin Water deal was a rumor, but he did make a good chunk of money from them when they were sold.

    Jay-Z and Puffy are known for their wealth and flaunting it.

    This would have to be a rapper that we'd least expect.

    Lil Wayne went to University of Houston for awhile, and although him and Baby seem to flaunt their wealth, I wouldn't be surprised if it was him investing, but wanting to hold on to his street cred.

    Trick Daddy?
    Method Man?
    Redman?
    DMX?

    Lil Jon's a good guess, but he's known in hip-hop circles about coming from an upbringing of privilege.

    Damn, I'm stumped.

    Yeah, but Pharrell doesn't have any street cred!

    What about T.I.? He seems to be pretty business savvy, but thugged out at the same time (You can take the man out of Bankhead...).

    Nelly? He's not 'thugged out' though.

    I'll say 50.
    Do you know how hard it is to find a good redbone?
