I wonder how much money that 100 million has made him in the interim, too...

the absurd fact is that money makes people richer, which is part of the inequality equation here.

If he wasn't the kind of moron that spends money on exclusive albums he should easily be able to live off interest

Lmao this is poor people mentality right here You can have your playthings, just make sure you’re on top of your game. You really think a 1 million album is a drop in the bucket compared to his nw? Plus you’re still taking about it like 6 years after this happened

His personal net worth is 80m. So that's 1/80th of a bucket which would be many drops

u/Most_Association_595 Jan 15 '22

Uh no 1.25 percent is a drop in the bucked. If you have 400k next worth, you can definitely afford to splurge 5k on something nice. Also, where exactly are you getting that number from? I’m pretty sure I read his nw > 100mm

A drop is less than 1.25% of a bucket

Oh fuck off with this nonsense. The point is that it’s inconsequential

If he has a habit of these purchases then no it is not
