50 Cent: ""I blow a hundred million, make another hundred mill"

Jay-Z in his latest album calls out rappers on their claims of crony-type wealth. BusinessWeek reports:
Fresh off of Jay-Z’s new album is the track Versus, on which he chides fellow hip-hop artists and their dubious tales of extraordinary wealth: “The truth in my verses, versus, your metaphors about what your net worth is.”
According to BW, the lyrics in the 50 Cent 2012 song I'm On It include the verse:
I blow a hundred million, make another hundred mill
50 Cent's 2012 earnings: $7.5 million. Not bad, but rapper money isn't crony money. Not even close. George Soros net worth as of March 2013: $19.2 billion. Soros will probably spend more on his upcoming wedding than 50 Cent made in all of 2012.
