Richest Rappers

Here is the top 5 Wealthiest Rappers according to Forbes latest issue.

5. 50 Cent ~$100 MM
4. Birdman ~$150 MM
3. Dr. Dre ~$350 MM
2. Jay Z ~$475 MM
1. Diddy ~$580 MM

What you can gain from this list is that the hustle is not just the rap game. The rap game put these guys in a position to make the snowball of wealth. AKA, they didn’t get all the money from the rap game (well other than Birdman). You got Beats by Dre, Vitamin Water, Ciroc, and other investments…

What up

It has been a while. I was in Minneapolis this week doing a bit of work. I am on a 20 day 8hr plus binge. It has probably been two years or so since I haven’t done at least an hour worth of work. I am not seeing an end in sight. Life is crazy like that.

What is funny is how I go to sporting events to “catch up” on email. Hustle is the name of the game…

Do Work

There is a bit to be said about getting things done. There are a few sayings such as “why do today, what you can do tomorrow.”

I have enjoyed the times in life where I have put things off and others have stepped up and filled in for me. That is not necessarily the best strategy though. I would recommend that you hustle and get things done. The sooner you get things done, the more you get done. Then more things will begin to snowball. Once you get the things done that you need to, more options will become available.

July 4th

Happy 4th.  I was not able to get much celebrating in from here, but was definitely appreciative of all that the US has to offer.  The sky really is the limit.  It might be overlooked at times, but the amount of opportunities that are available in the US is incredible. “America is the land of opportunity”  It is a good point in the year to look at and see where your priorities are.  You can go back to your year goals and adjust accordingly.

I see places like this hit the market and it really makes me want to get there one day. This island is listed at $75 mil and includes the following ” guest house, a ‘floating’ tennis court, swimming pool, a gym, movie theater, three-story library and a wine cellar that holds 8,000 bottles. The island also has a several docks and a manmade beach.”, check luxist for more details. Crazy…

Slow Game

This down economy hurts for many reasons. The mortgage crisis has its positives and negatives. I can get a house at a great price and still flip it for a decent profit in certain areas. What is killing me though is the time it takes for the buyers to get a loan. It used to be loans came easy, 20-30 days for a loan. Now it is taking 45 days for a qualified individual to get a loan. So basically it is taking a few extra weeks to get paid. I am being a bit more cautious as well, which means not spending the money before I got it. Previously I had a bit of faith that loans would go through…

Not any more, there is this, “I don’t feel comfortable with the terms of my loan” out for buyers. Basically escrow means nothing any more. It used to be that you were getting the money that people were putting down on homes, but now not even that is guaranteed. So I am adapting as much as possible to the new trends and trying to figure out how to keep the hustle going.

For now I am just going to keep things slow and in the positive numbers. I am also looking for other opportunities in other areas and new areas. I know a few builders that didn’t slow down and their game got flipped upside down. It is rough going from 40 homes on the market to losing your own personal home and working as a day laborer, but that is the reality for some. I have mad respect for the guys that are keeping positive through it all. Locally I have heard of 3 that have taken themselves out of the game permanently. Remember easy come, easy go, so know your limits and always keep it positive.

I just noticed that Trulia has a new search feature. You can search by homes that have been reduced recently. AKA, you can smell blood. This is a great feature for those looking for a deal.

trulia search for investments in your hood.

I am reading this book now and liking the writing style. Here is one of the more gangsta quotes about China.

‘America is great because guns make everybody equal. Freedom in China is a pocketful of money,’ he said, showing me a six-inch-thick wad of 50-yuan notes. ‘In China, you either have money or you have to be obedient.’

I will be posting a bit more from the book about arbitrage and other hustles the locals have and have had during the rise.
