XXXTENTACION: $10 million
The controversial rapper was known for his raw and daring style of music. Real name Jahseh Onfroy, the rapper shot to fame by releasing snippets and full versions of his songs on SoundCloud.
Within two years, he released several projects, both as a solo artiste and also as a member of the Members Only music group. In early 2017, the track “Look at Me!” became his first breakthrough hit.
For someone with a violent criminal history, even after a 27% drop in year-over-year consumption, the polarizing South Florida rapper remains the most-streamed dead celebrity in the U.S. with 5.6 billion spins.
