Hip Hop’s Big Business Misfires

For every successful venture Diddy, Jay Z, and 50 Cent engage in there are countless others that miss the mark. Tread lightly seems to be the best advice for rappers turned entrepreneurs, as many of the business moves made by even the most successful artists end in failure.

Most recently, Lil Wayne was allegedy looking to get into the sports management game. In a move that mirrored Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports. Wayne’s first client was reportedly Cristiano Ronaldo– a claim Ronaldo went on to quickly deny. While the two have been friends for awhile, is the sports hustle where Wayne will really shine?

What can you say, other than when you switch lanes, make sure you keep your eyes on the road?

Check out our breakdown of some of hip hop’s big business misfires.
