Music is the soul of life and one of the most appreciated genres of music in the world is Hip-Hop or Rap music. Though lots of people consider rap to be the choice of those with ghetto roots, the fact cannot be denied that the lyrical content and strong message integrated in the music is bigger reason why many are stuck with it.
Over time, many of the rap artistes have recorded success, getting nominations, bagging awards, getting endorsements, hosting shows and even involved in Hollywood.
However, the involvement of women in Rap music may not be as effective as it used to be, but many of them can be considered successful over the years. Here is a list of the top 10 most successful female rappers in terms of wealth:
