4th on the list is Birdman of the Cash Money Empire. His net worth is $110 Million which isn’t as large as the first 3 moguls. But $110 million from a poor boy who grew up in the dangerous New Orleans projects isn’t bad either. You have to respect his hustle.

Last but least we can’t forget “Drake” the “Cash King” at Cash Money. Who’s net worth is $90 million USD. His new album “Views” had over 1 billion streams at Apple Music. But we can’t stop there because he also created his own record label outside of cash money “OVO Sound” which is home to PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan, OB O’Brien, Roy Woods, dvsn as well as in-house producers 40, Boi-1da, T-Minus, Mike Zombie, Nineteen85 and Future the Prince.
