According to Business Week , some of today's top rappers, including Pitbull , are apparently taking serious artistic license when rapping about their income.
Pitbull leads the pack with the most exaggerated income, claiming in his hit, "Feel This Moment," "
Now make dollars, I mean billions, I'm a genius."
In reality, he apparently only banked $9.5 million in 2012. Not bad, but not close to a billion.
Nicki Minaj comes in second on the Business Week list for echoing the same billionaire status on her song, "Up in Flames," but she's doing better than Pitbull. The magazine concludes the former American Idol judge made $15.5 million in 2012.
