Ever wonder how much your favorite rap artist makes for a single performance?

  1. As published by VladTV, an unofficial rap sheet of performance fees leaked online recently, and the memo broke down how much some of music’s biggest names allegedly bag for a single show. Pitbull and Lil Uzi Vert top the list with a reportedly whopping $200,000 booking price followed by Young Money honcho Lil Wayne, Logic, Khalid, Future and Post Malone at $150,000, based on the unverified documents obtained by the outlet.

  2. It’s worth noting that Weezy’s official rate was unlisted and the earmarked $150,000 was cited as a special rate for college shows only, however. In the $100,000 club are T.I., Nas, The Roots, Tyler the Creator, Snoop Dogg and Nelly, among other names. 

  3. Rap’s newest stars are cashing in on their newfound fame with Houston sensation Megan Thee Stallion, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Juice Wrld, Charlotte spitter DaBaby and trap prodigy Lil Baby, who all reportedly command anywhere between $100,000 to $150,000 for a show.

  4. While the leaked list mostly contained the names of rappers, some R&B singers were included as well

    Some of the names from that circle include Tinashe ($40,000-$45,000), Solange ($150,000) and Rita Ora ($75,000). So far, the validity of the list has not been confirmed, and some people questioned the accuracy of the list as some of the artists mentioned have long fallen out of public relevance (though they still may command a modest fee). 

     

  5. Tory Lanez tweeted out in August that he charges a cool $75,000 just for features, according to XXL Magazine. But based on the leaked list, the hip-hop crooner reportedly charges between $50,000 to $75,000 for a single show. Furthermore, October’s very own, Drake, was notably absent from the list as well as other major names such as Kendrick Lamar and Nicki Minaj.

     

  6. It also seems the alleged prices might solely include how much these artists charge to perform at colleges and universities, as Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, Kanye West and Chris Brown among others had “no colleges” filled in by their names.
