And living lavish, or living well?

Rakim's paid in Full comes to mind.

But who was before that and credible/relevant?

NHL - who?

Lit - I wanna know. Sometimes hearing Raekwon talk about money when I was 13 was really inspiring.

Like to live high end way back.

So I was wondering who was showing that?

Maybe on rappers delight.

^ er....yes bit of a no brainer...first time on wax i am sure loads of MC's did it live first but this first on wax

"Check it out, I'm the C-A-S-AN, the O-V-A and the rest is F-L-Y
You see, I go by the code of the doctor of the mix and these reasons I'll tell you why
You see I'm six foot one and I'm tons of fun and I dress to a tee
You see I got more clothes than Muhammad Ali and I dress so viciously
I got bodyguards, I got two big cars, that definitely ain't the whack
I got a Lincoln continental and a sunroof Cadillac
So after school, I take a dip in the pool, which is really on the wall
I got a color TV so I can see the Knicks play basketball
Hear me talking 'bout checkbooks, credit cards, more money than a sucker could ever spend
But I wouldn't give a sucker or a bum from the Rucker, not a dime 'til I made it again
Everybody go: Hotel, motel, whatcha gonna do today (say what?)
Cause I'ma get a fly girl, gonna get some spank and drive off in a def OJ"

I guess it is Rapper Delight.

Caz wrote that verse.

What about who fantasized about money vs those who actually had money and lived it?

I actually don't think it was ever done correct in rap.

Alot of it is Fantasy.

I guess long term, the real winners here are Dr.Dre, Jay Z, Eminem, Drake, 2 Chainz cause he's a landlord and Rick Ross cause he owns Chicken spots.

Puff Daddy too.

The reality is that most successful rappers money wise have a side hustle.

They are all on point businessmen.

50 Cent is a great example.
