Famous American Rapper With Unique Hubbies

Published

on

 


Each of these performers have made crowds go wild at some point in their careers  

Even the rich and famous have hobbies, those various activities to be enjoyed during free time or, in the case of busy musicians when they are off stage and not on tour.

Like all artists, rappers must prioritize their craft. However, between turning out albums for their fans, writing and recording in the studio, and selling out concert shows, they still manage to make use of their downtime in their own special way just like the rest of us.

Here are five notable rappers, past and present, whose hobbies are unique and interesting. Who knows, maybe you even share in one or more of these interests.

Lil Wayne – Skating

One of the most famous rappers of the 21stcentury, Lil Wayne is known for his top-selling albums, with himself and his team continually winning prestigious awards year after year. In fact, at this year’s 63rd Grammys, his thirteenth studio record, Funeralwon Best Recording Package.

When the rapper is not raking in momentous achievements, you can probably find him skateboarding, a passion he has had for the better part of his life. In past interviews, he has made references to the hobby, describing it as his “second love” with music being the first, of course. He frequently attends pro-skateboarding events and even performed himself one year at the VMA awards.

Nelly – Poker

The recipient of several MTV, Billboard, and BET Awards, among many others, Nelly is a talented rapper whose skills are multi-faceted. The St. Louis native has been in the rap scene since his breakthrough album Country Grammar earned him a top spot on the charts back in the early 2000s.

Nelly’s fans and followers know about his love for poker as he has been quite vocal about it in past interviews with the press, where he talks about the strategic game and the reason he plays. In fact, the star has even been to the World Series of Poker, one of the most prestigious poker tournaments that got its start back in 1970 with only 7 participants. In addition to making music and playing poker, the singer enjoys watching professional baseball and is a dedicated fan of his local team, the St. Louis Cardinals.

Will Smith – Chess

Although Will Smith is generally known for his acting performances rather than his musical talent, the star actually got his start with rapping under the name “The Fresh Prince”. This then led to him landing the lead role on the hit show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, one of the most popular sitcoms of the 1990s.

However, some people may not know that the rapper turned successful actor is an avid player of another strategy game – chess, and has endorsed important tournaments like the Millionaire Chess Open. The chess enthusiast enjoys the hobby greatly and has even been known to work with chess masters in an effort to further refine his skills.

Will Smith is one among many other famous people who enjoy a good game of chess

DMX – Entomology

Easily the most fascinating and unique hobby on this list, the late rapper DMX was widely known for his love of insect collecting. The artist enjoyed studying bugs in his free time, interested in the world of these creepy crawlers and their relation to humans.

However, DMX is not the only one whose passion for entomology took up a large part of his life. Fellow rapper Kool Keith has also expressed his interest in the study of insects, acquiring his own personal collection at home.

Ice T – Gaming

Last but not least, Ice T is perhaps just as popular for being a master gamer as he is for being a stellar rapper. The artist has never been shy about his love for gaming, even giving himself the title “The Original Gamer.” In past interviews, he has stated that his favourite title is Call of Duty and it is the one he spends the most time playing.

Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin is a born giver and a pacesetter ” Dr Doyin Olaleye, Marlians TV

his is how Men of God should love and support one another; The Billionaire Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin emphasized as he blessed Popular Abuja Prophet Joshua Iginla and Dr Chris Okafor

Billionaire Prophet, Jeremiah Fufeyin donates N10 million to pastor Iginla’s foundation

Known for providing succour and nurturing dreams to reality, Founder and senior Prophet, Christ MercyLand Deliverance Ministries (CMDM), Jeremiah Fufeyin yesterday donated about N10 million to aid the charity organisation of Popular Abuja based Prophet, Joshua Iginla.

Owomowomo as he is fondly referred to, believes that people must do their little bit of good wherever they find themselves; as the acts put together could overwhelm the world and make life easy and better for someone out there, noted that the donation was born out of the passion to assuage the plight of Nigerians, especially the masses.
The pacesetter Prophet, insisted that men Of God in Africa, especially Nigeria must show love and set the good pace of love amongst clergymen in the country.

While the World Bank had noted that with economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis, the national poverty rate in Nigeria may hit 100.9 million by 2022, this means a lot of Nigerians will suffer unbearable and unnecessary hardship, Fufeyin who is filled with love and compassion for humanity noted that wealthy Nigerians must find a way to limit such socioeconomic projections, in supporting those in need.

Fufeyin in a viral video online noted that the donation to the church would go a long way to assist the charity segment of the ministry.

Fufeyin, who also blessed the ministry of powerful Lagos based Prophet Chris Okafor with 5 million Naira for their ongoing church project had recently offered about N1.5 million to outstanding Corp members who served in his church in Warri earlier this year, also Marlians Television Network made a publication last year where the Billionaire Prophet donated about N800 million to the less privileged in the heat of the COVID-19 pandemic,
He insisted that Nigerians have given so much to the church and that it was only fair that wealthy pastors give back in these trying times.

The statement said the Prophet had earlier assisted the Federal Government and members of his church with about N300 million last year, bringing his total donation to N1.2 billion in a few months.

The message is clear, either intentionally or unintentionally, Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin is setting a new standard of relationship, love and unity amongst Clergymen in the continent and this is something that’s obviously missing for a long time now in the body of Christ, it feels so refreshing seeing men of God supporting each with clean hearts, instead of endless hatred, envy, jealousy amongst Pastors in Africa.
Prophet Jeremiah seems tirelessly focused on changing the negative narrative amongst clergymen in the country.
God Bless Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, God Bless Papa Joshua Iginla, God Bless Doctor Chris Okafor and God Bless You.
