Drake’s actual bling wasn’t affected, and the “Hotline Bling” rapper will undoubtedly bounce back from this minor setback. His net worth is still below that of celebrities such as Kobe Bryant, Justin Bieber, and Miley Cyrus, while he reigns over Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, former opponent Bernie Sanders, and President Barack Obama.
Concert tours are currently the biggest source of Drake’s wealth, and the theft from his tour bus probably won’t even affect Drake’s net worth. The rapper continues to rake in the money with album sales, product endorsements, and multiple investments, with his current lifetime earnings sitting at approximately $168 million.
