Pitbull and Rick Ross Claim to Be Billionaires, Only Make About $9 Million a Year

Believing a rapper who says "I'm a motherfuckin' billionaire" is just as ridiculous as believing a politician who says "I will be honest, accountable, and faithful to my wife."

Still, in pursuit of some LOLs, Bloomberg Businessweek (a publication that's owned, coincidentally, by billionaire and politician Michael Bloomberg) has assembled a snazzy infographic, comparing hip-hoppers' inflated lyrical boasts of wealth with actual annual income.

And predictably, two of the 305's biggest ballers are outed for fibbing about their finances.
