Stories of rappers falling to financial irresponsibility are pretty common in hip-hop. Many rappers have regrettable stories spawning from the financial choices they made earlier in their career. Thankfully, many have taken the opportunity to try and pass some of that financial wisdom along to their peers to prevent them from making the same mistakes. During a recent interview, Fivio Foreign opened up on what he did with his early signing bonus and what he wished he'd known at the time.

The first thing he reveals he purchased is a nearly $100k bulletproof truck. He describes that as the "smartest" decision he made with his money. He also explains that he spent tens of thousands of dollars on chains. But the biggest mistake in his eyes is that he put his money into renting a house instead of buying one. He explains that he didn't really process the difference he just wanted to move somewhere quickly. Check out the full videos of him explaining his financial decisions after cutting his deal below.
