    The music industry has blessed the world with some of the finest MCs and producers of all time. These rappers are considered living legends for the lyrics they've written and the albums they produce. Rappers like these usually have lots of money to spend and some of them have some pretty expensive hobbies. A portion of them like to gamble and place bets and that should come as no surprise to anyone. Without further ado here are some rappers that like to gamble:



    2000 was a great year for Nelly as he made a name for himself with the hit album Country Grammar. Pretty much any raphead knows Hot in Here and knows what a good party song that is. Dilemma is another hit song that he and Kelly Rowland are responsible for. When he's not busy making the next hit Nelly has been known to play poker. In fact, he's such a poker fan that he regularly competes at the PokerStars European Poker Tour circuit. However, it hasn't been going great for him at the poker table as he's suffered some heavy losses. Maybe he should try his skills at some online casino. If he's looking for a different version of poker he can play here and even make use of some bonuses to give him the winning edge.

    Jay Z

    Jay Z is arguably one of the most successful rappers of all time. He's not just a rapper but a very good businessman as well as a basketball sports agent. He has been through ups and downs in his career but came out strong eventually. The Hard Knock Life is one of his most recognizable tracks and The Blueprint one of his most successful albums. Besides rapping and producing Jay Z also likes to play a few games of blackjack and poker as he's been known to take part in high stakes poker events all over the world.


    If it weren't for Birdman and his brother Cash Money Records wouldn't exist and people would've never heard a Lil Wayne track. He's also known for being a successful businessman and investor but also for betting in sportsbooks and spending his free time in casinos. He lost over $2 million by betting on Miami Heat to win the NBA Championship, but it was the Dallas Mavericks that walked away with the title.

    P Diddy

    P Diddy, or as he was known earlier Puff Daddy, was the one who discovered the Notorious B.I.G. and changed the rap game forever. He's an icon of the hip hop scene and very well of because of it so it should come as no surprise that he likes to gamble. When he's not scouting for the next rap superstar he can be seen in Las Vegas playing blackjack at the high stakes tables.

    All of these rappers have controversial lives and expensive habits and their ups and downs in their careers and on the casino tables have given them valuable lessons that they use in their business lives.
