    Who would you say has GOT to be a millionaire from the scene?

    Surely Goldie is way up there, as is Hype and say Andy C.

    Highly doubt Hype and Andy C are millionaires. Goldie MIGHT be.

    Pendulum must be. Maybe Chase & Status as well, they were nominated for some big award recently, weren't they?

    Actually scrap that, neither is Goldie.

    Pendulum & Chase & Status 100%.

    ...so if you get nominated for an award you automatically get millions in your bank? by that logic SP:MC is definitely a millionaire because he won best MC at the DNBA Awards, in fact he's probably the richest MC in the game, probably got millions in the bank and a private jet to take him to gigs...

    I seriously doubt Pendulum are millionaires. Chase & Status on the other might be.

    No, you dingus! I meant if they're big enough to be nominated for an actualy mainstream award like the Brits (just looked up what it was) they must be doing alright for themselves.

    highly doubt that chase and status are... they would've made a tidy sum of money from writing for Rihanna, but that would depend on the contract details, publishing rights etc...

    edit: this thread is seriay retarded btw.

    No one even close, £75k a year bags you about £45k a year after tax.
    Return on sales for pendulum and c&s are probably alright but the moneys not just going to one person.

    Goldie's probably earned close to, or over but living costs increase the more you get.

    on a side note, Calibre deserves to be, as does Intalex and Ant Tc1.

    Chase & Status have to be millionaires. Two great album releases various chart appearances collaborating with alot of big names. IMO they have there own tour bus for gorrds sake
