For the last couple of decades, women have been fighting to be heard within the rap industry, and now there are several successful female rappers, with many working in collaboration.  In the 1990s, the icons in rap were Lil' Kim and Missy Elliot who influenced up and coming younger female rappers and according to Celebrity Net Worth, is estimated to have a net worth of around USD500,000.

One of the newer female rappers is Mulatto, who in He Say She Say incorporates the lyrics “I smell like money and Baccarat (ooh) / Fendi space boots, like an astronaut (ooh) / I swear if I said it, I meant it, I handlin' business.” This hints at the direct experience of live dealer online casino games, which are not just great entertainment, but a chance to win big. However, the richest female rapper made her money almost exclusively from her music.
