The Flaunting of wealth has been synonymous with hip hop since rappers first started making money.
Having said that there are plenty of cases of that cash burning up with outlandish displays of wealth, going from rags to riches can wrap up a person’s perception of money and lead them to make some bad buys.

#9 lil baby
Starting off the list at number 9 we have
He didn’t go there to get jewelry for himself what he actually bought was much more surprising along with an 8000 dollar kids size Rolex for his birthday baby purchased for his son a chain that has his name fully iced out with seven carats of VS diamonds.
The reason for why this wasn’t a good purchase is pretty obvious I mean I don’t think kids care that much about iced out chains he probably would have rather
Plus this kid
#8 The Game
The game is well known for his car collection the cars can be a fickle financial investments they depreciate in value pretty quickly and can really burn a hole in your pockets.
But the game took it to a whole new level when he purchased a new Bugatti Veyron for a whopping 2.2 million dollars in 2012 he quotes “that reality show money is wonderful” he said in a post on Instagram.
The car does look pretty sweet but it’s
How the tables turn in seven years earlier this year the game was accused of sexually assaulting a contestant on the VH1 reality show she’s got game the same show which helped him pay for his Bugatti.
A judge awarded seven million dollars to the woman he assaulted but the game Did not pay it and now his royalties from his most recent album are being paid in order to settle that debt.
With all this drama and money being thrown around that
Tyga is once again on the up and up coming out of a tumultuous career spiral by penny club hits and party anthems it wasn’t always so peachy for Tyga though.
Who’s been evicted from multiple homes for owing back pay on rents as recently as 2016 he’s even had his Ferrari repossessed.
None of these past failures stops
A truly ridiculous amount of money to carry around your neck but Hey that’s how
There are many reasons why it would be sick to live the life of October’s very own in what is probably one of the biggest flexes you could ever make.
Drake bought his neighbor’s property after they complained about the noise coming from his 7.7 million dollar home in hidden hills California.
The additional property cost him another 2.5 million but that was just a drop in the bucket for the former Degrassi star whose net worth now exceeds 150 million dollars.
Between the two luxury homes drake now has a combined twelve thousand square feet of space in the hidden hills plenty of room for the lavish parties and rock star lifestyle I’m sure he’s living but will never experience.
#5 Soulja Boy
Let’s throw it back to 2009 the viral hit of the decade inspiring white people everywhere to do the Superman is
Soulja boy is on top of the world selling records and selling out shows what could he possibly purchase if you guessed a
Never in my life that I think I would say the words remote controlled Lamborghini chain but here we are.
Soulja boy had the miniature Lambo attached to his neck chain and the whole thing cost him 200K dollars truly the investment of the century.
who knows though with his recent campaign to create his own game console and his resurgence in popularity perhaps
#4 Lil Wayne
Wayne is by no accounts an unintelligent man and he’s also a certified legend in the rap world but we have to scratch our heads of a 150K dollar price tag that came to have diamonds densely implanted into his teeth.
No that’s not a grill he had diamonds implanted into his teeth as in he can’t take them out without surgery.
That’s some serious commitment to the hustle it raised some odd questions when he was imprisoned at Riker’s Island where cash is prohibited and valuables were taken by authorities.
Would he really be allowed to show up to prison with a bunch of diamonds in his teeth that couldn’t be taken out by conventional means apparently yes.
There were no regulations on such teeth implanted jewelry at the time of his imprisonment but Hey some people stashed money under the mattresses why not keep it on you at all times but putting it in your teeth.
#3 21 Savage
21 savage was on good track last year when he announced that he made the decision to no longer buy jewelry I mean he had already accumulated tons of jewelry such as a 100 carat diamond version of his face.
So he had plenty of accessories to wear going forward without ever getting bored of any one piece I mean it was a great decision he all of a sudden had all this money freed up that he could invest in houses crypto and helping the community.
His reason for making that change was that quote “the richest people I’ve ever met in my life they’ve never had on jewelry every time I meet someone who’s very very rich like wealthy I’ve never seen them with jewelry”
Someone must have made a mat or something because only a few months later he spent 500K dollars yes half a million on a pair of giant diamond earrings.
If I was gonna spend 500K dollars on some jewelry probably the last thing I would get is earings they’re notoriously easy to lose can you imagine dropping a
Notorious for shafting the artists under his proverbial wing is also notorious for spending ridiculous amounts of money back in 2012.
While he was busy not paying his artists such as Lil Wayne as well as Tyga birdman was busy instead paying for a 14.5 million dollar mansion in Miami.
The nineteen thousand square foot pad came with a Cabana both an Outdoor And an underground pool a theater a gym and a spa you name it it was probably on birdman’s mansion.
What a time to be alive or maybe not last year a judge ordered that birdman vacate the mansion it turns out that birdman took out a loan to pay for the new digs a loan that he defaulted on in 2016 it led to a 12 million dollar foreclosure lawsuit which also included an office space he was renting at the time yes that’s karma for how we did lil Wayne.
What must be one of the most pointless and extravagant waste of money even by the standards of this list future revealed during a shopping trip with complex magazine earlier this year that he spends approximately 300K dollars a month on clothing.
You heard that right 300K dollars a month if you want some quick maths that comes out to 3.6 million dollars a year just on threads threads that come and go with the seasons threads that fall behind in terms of fashion trends we’re talking about very depreciable purchases here.
Granted it’s not all for himself he was getting his daughter
