22 Rappers With Highest Net Worth
#19 Adam Horovitz aka Ad-Rock, $75 million
As a member of The Beastie Boys, Ad-Rock, as he is known to millions of hardcore fans, is considered one of the most revered members from the first generation of hip hop. Initially in a punk band, Ad-Rock transitioned to hip hop when it first became a force in the boroughs of New York and took the sound across the Atlantic with his bandmates.
Horovitz joined the group at 16 years old, shaped their sound and was instrumental in the group becoming a dominant group in the early days of rap. The Beastie Boys sold more than 22 million albums and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. Ad-Rock has since appeared in film and television productions and produces for other musical artists.
