Drake’s Not Yet a Billionaire, Net Worth Falls Short

Word on the street is people gettin’ all hyped up ’bout Drake hittin’ billionaire status. They talkin’ big numbers, sayin’ Drizzy’s got a net worth that’s finally got a ‘B’ in front. But hold up, let’s pump the brakes for a minute.

Now, don’t get me wrong, Drake’s a baller. He stacks paper higher than skyscrapers and rolls in luxury most of us can only dream of. Forbes is considered the source of the best estimates and they put him somewhere in the vicinity of $190 million way back in 2019. That ain’t chump change, but it’s a long way from that billionaire club.

However, there was a massive $400 million deal landed with Universal in 2022 and that has to push him further towards the three comma club. Combine this with the number of streams he’s getting on services like Spotify (afterall, he’s the highest streamed musician of all time), This leads many to believe that Drake’s Net Worth is to be hitting $500 million 2024.

The thing is, a lot of folks been throwin’ around the ‘billionaire’ title lately, but that word holds serious weight. You don’t just become a billionaire ’cause you got a hit album or a flashy clothing line. That kind of wealth takes serious business moves, investments, the whole nine yards.

Sure, Drake’s got his hands in a lot of pots: the music, OVO Sound, merch, real estate, even a tequila brand. But even with all that hustlin’, most experts say he ain’t quite in the billionaire zone yet. That OVO empire is strong, but it takes time to turn a few hundred mil into an extra zero.

Now, ain’t nothin’ wrong with bein’ mad successful like Drizzy. He’s put in the work, built a brand, and deserves every penny. But let’s be real here – joinin’ Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Kanye in that elite group is another level. He might hit that milestone one day, but for now, it’s a little too early to celebrate.

Drake’s still one of the top dogs in the game, no doubt. He’s a hitmaker, a businessman, and his influence is undeniable. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves with that billionaire talk. The grind never stops, and we know Drizzy’s ambitious. Who knows, maybe one day he’ll shatter that ceiling too, but for now, the champagne’s on ice.
