The Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show’s list of performers would make the promoters of any major music festival jealous: Coldplay, Beyoncé and likely Bruno Mars, for starters. Yet, just like Madonna, the Black-Eyed Peas and Katy Perry before them, none of the acts gracing the Super Bowl stage in Santa Clara this Sunday will be receiving a performance fee.

Making the best music doesn’t always translate to making the most money. Of the ten highest-paid musicians in the world, only three earned Grammy nominations. Just ten of the 25 top earners industrywide received a nod, and only six of them claimed more than two. But the value of a Grammy, while hard to pinpoint, is undeniably significant.

Despite the fact that he was born in 1988, A$AP Rocky has plenty of old school tendencies to go along with his avant garde side.
