Which Of The Hot Boys Has The Highest Net Worth?

25 years after the Hot Boys first hit the scene, Juvenile, Lil Wayne, Turk, and B.G. are still making waves in the industry. As Lil Wayne explained in his “Behind the Music” episode back in 2009, the Hot Boys were first formed in the summer of 1997, and their debut album, “Get It How U Live!” sold 400,00 copies on the success of such singles as “Block Burner.” Subsequently, the Hot Boys would appear in each of the member’s solo projects, and they can notably be seen in Lil Wayne’s video “Tha Block is Hot” and B.G.’s “Bling Bling.” Even though the group is no longer together, they’re still finding ways to work together against all odds.

According to the press release announcement, people in the 18-to-29 age demographic are the least likely to get vaccinated against COVID-19,...

Birdman Reveals Cash Money Records Rakes In Over $20M Annually Off Artists' Masters Alone

Cash Money continues to take over for the 2000s! Born Bryan Christopher Williams, Birdman is the co-owner and co-founder of Cash Money Records, a label that features a roster of some of this generation’s hottest names in rap like Nicki Minaj, Drake , and Lil Wayne. The label first gained notoriety through former artists like Juvenile, Cory Gunz, and Hot Boys and set the tone for current labels and hip hop acts whose music is evident of Cash Money’s influence on the culture as a whole. Birdman — formerly known as “Baby” — recently explained how putting out the hottest artists has provided a big return to this day, explaining how the label continues to capitalize off of its artists and even how clearing their samples is paying off big time. According to Complex, the hip hop heavyweight recently shed light on the cash flow for the record label during an exclusive with Wallo of “Where’s Wallo.” “If it has a value. That’s a value.
