    He toured a lot, when Drake had a big tour the year before he was over 90 mil, this is a Drake year without touring. Drake usually tours 1 year and takes another 1 off, when he tours hes over 90 mil and when he doesn't he's in the 40s

    Cole stays touring every year more than almost anyone in hip hop and has a loyal fanbase that always comes to his concerts. Russ is some Sicilian guy from Jersey that does everything in house from producing, writing and engineering his own music. Supposedly the first one to build himself up from Soundcloud as well

    He's a half white half black dude that raps about positivity and his biggest hit is about suicide awareness. has some lyrical talent. but word is he gets flak for being white when it benefits him and for being black when it benefits him. you know what I'm tryna say. In his words "I'm bi-racial"

    Dre has made more money off Beats than his entire rap career
    Diddy has made more off Ciroc than his entire rap career
    50 has made more off Vitamin water than his entire rap career
