I used to always wonder, and sometimes still does, how much different celebrities charge for appearances and for those in the performance world, for a show.

Recently Complex.com compiled a list of different rappers and how much it is for a show. We recently did a list of the most infamous concert riders. Check that out here.

This list may surprise some of you so I featured just a few.

10. Trinidad James – $12,500 Trinidad was recently dropped from Def Jam but he recently released a cut earlier this week called “H.O.M.E.” It stands for Hating on Me.

9. Riff Raff – $35k – You all remember Riff Raff got his start on the reality show “From G’s To Gents.” Don’t get it twisted though. Riff Raff has been around for a minute and has definitely worked his way from the bottom to the top.

8. Shad Moss formerly known as Bow Wow – $25k – According to Complex they headed this as booking your favorite rapper. It was recently announced that he will be taking on a regular role on a CSI spinoff called CSI: Cyber. I am sure that price will probably go up.

7. Rakim – 20k – Now this surprised me a bit. I thought that Rakim would be more. I really don’t have much more to say about that.

6.  Busta Rhymes – $40k – Busta is buzzing with his new single “Calm Down” featuring Eminem. I really like Busta and I think this one is about right.

5. Soulja Boy – $50k – Soulja Boy is going to be on the upcoming Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood installment so I am sure the bookings will be really flowing. One thing to keep in mind Soulja Boy can be considered to have a little bit of a crossover crowd, but, $50k a show? I ain’t mad at ya.

4. Juicy J- $60k – I think that this one is about right as well. Juicy J is well rounded and appealing to a lot of crowds! Get that check Juice!

3. Nelly – $65k – Now, I am a fan of Nelly so I will have to say yasssss honey! With the new reality show coming with his boo Miss Jackson heading to BET, I’m not mad at Nelly either!

2. Wale, B.O.B., & Jeezy – $70k – These fine gentleman came tied in second. I have seen all three perform and they definitely put on a show.

1.  Snoop and Rick Ross – $100k – I have not seen Snoop perform, however, I have seen Rozay perform at least twice and let me tell you. He had that stage JUMPIN!!! I hear that Snoop has the stage live too! Get that check misters!
