BET’s Death Row Chronicles revealed new information about Tupac, Suge Knight and the rest of Death Row Records. Pac was murdered decades ago and we’re still infatuated with him. It seems like every network is delivering a special on Tupac’s life and I’m loving it.
Tupac Net Worth As Of 2018: $52 Million
Tupac’s $52 million was earned through his career as a rapper and actor. He released 6 studio albums while he was alive and 5 were released after he died. Tupac is dead but he is earning more money than many successful rappers who are still alive. In 2010, Shakur’s estate earned $3.5 million.
In 1995, Pac signed a deal with Death Row Records for $3.5 million. Scroll through his original record contract:
The year that Tupac died, he sold nearly $70 million worth of records. Suge Knight is a cut throat businessman so Pac never received the millions he deserved. Pac was in a vulnerable position when he met Knight and the Death Row founder took advantage of him.
Karma continues to teach Suge Knight harsh lessons. Numerous rumors are being spread about his case. Knight recently explained, “I’m not Donald Trump, but it’s fake news.” Was robbing Tupac worth it? Knight will most likely spend the rest of his life in jail and he’s currently worth less than $150,000.
Tupac On Donald Trump
Tupac dropped loads of knowledge on us during his brief life. While we appreciate his music, his interviews were also unforgettable. In 1992, Tupac warned us about Donald Trump and we should have listened:'Everybody’s taught that. You wanna be successful? You wanna be like Trump? Gimme gimme gimme, push push push push, step step step, crush crush crush. That’s how it all is… It’s too much money here. Nobody should be hitting the lotto for 36 million and we’ve got people starving in the streets. That’s not idealistic, that’s just real. That’s just stupid… There’s no way that these people should own planes and there are people who don’t have houses. 'Click To Tweet
Trump is worth $3.1 billion. What would Tupac say about the president if the rapper was still alive? Jay-Z called Trump a “superbug” and Jay is a much nicer person than Tupac.
