Listening to hip-hop music, it’s easy to believe that just about every rapper shares the same come-up story. They grew up in the ‘hood, at some point resorted to selling drugs, launched a career rapping about said drug life and voila! Made it big.

And while that may have been the case for a number of artists like Biggie, Nas, Jay Z and 50 Cent, the reality is, when it comes to being an MC, struggle isn’t always in the equation.

As rich kids, hip-hop was a form of expression, or in some cases, a way to follow in daddy’s footsteps. But does being the product of money better your chances at a rap career or hinder it?

Check out our list of 10 Rappers Who Were Born Rich and decide for yourself.
