Surprisingly Awesome Financial Advice From Hip-Hop Stars

“In anticipation, for precipitation, stack chips for the rainy day.” – Rihanna


Rihanna has always been a tough-as-nails baller, but she’s also a financially responsible adult. Back when she recorded her breakthrough single “Umbrella,” Rihanna was just a wise 18-year-old under Jay-Z’s wing. What happens when you’re a rap mogul’s protégée? You get some great advice. In this verse, Rihanna is clearly channeling Jay-Z’s money smarts and telling us all to save up because bad things happen. When it rains, it pours – and we’re going to need to buy an umbrella (or a replacement part for our car or a doctor’s visit). The best way to protect yourself from unexpected expenses is to have a solid savings.
