Gabe Day – Rappers Who Were Born Rich
As far as sons-of-Oscar-winning-actors-who-rap go, Gabe Day takes the cake. Life for the 18-year-old was pretty rough growing up, considering his father Daniel Day-Lewis’ status as one of Hollywood’s best actors and a net worth of close to $50M. The affluent lifestyle, fancy schools and transition from Europe to the States inspired Gabe Day (who hates to be called Gabe-Day Lewis) to express his hardships through rap.
“From Europe to the East Coast / It wasn’t easy to adapt,” he raps on ‘Green Auras.’ “I was on a bad path / I did too many drugs / Felt like coping on my own when all I needed was a hug.” The Sarah Lawrence College undergrad cites Nas and J.Cole as his inspirations. Our advice? Stay in school, kid.
