From expensive clothes to gaudy chains and customized rides, wealth has always been a major talking point in the hip-hop community – especially in rap lyrics. As Jay-Z chides on Magna Carta… Holy Grail‘s “Versus” track, “The truth in my verses versus your metaphors about what your net worth is.” Thus, Businessweek recently launched an inside look into hip-hop’s dubious tales of extraordinary wealth. The results confirm Hov’s skepticism of rap’s tried-and-true rags-to-riches narrative – one in which Jay has taken part in the truest sense while others’ claims to a cache of prosperity are, in truth, mostly unrealized.Here, Businessweek hilariously ousts some of the industry’s worst offenders – and most “humble” lyricists – with a telling “Actual Wealth vs. Alleged Wealth” comparison.

Trinidad-born NYC rapper Theophilus London follows up on the release of his latest single “Rio” with this music video. A chilled out track that features The Menahan Street Band, “Rio” draws on London’s diverse musical influences that include non hip hop genres such as funk and jazz. The self-directed video is hazy and dreamlike, which pairs well with the laid-back groove of the back track.
