Forbes Releases It’s Annual List Of Wealthiest Rappers

Drake is the 5th wealthiest rapper of all time.


Forbes just released it’s annual list of wealthiest rappers and nothing has really changed except for Jay-Z surpassing Dr. Dre for the second spot. Diddy is still in first place as all three are still in the race for the hip hop’s first billionaire. Birdman comes in forth and Drake is only $20 million behind him.


Forbes explained the way they calculate their figures:


“In order to complete the Forbes Five list, we follow the same procedures used to calculate our list of the world’s billionaires: looking at past earnings, valuing current holdings, leafing through financial documents and talking to analysts, attorneys, managers, other industry players and even some of the moguls themselves to find the details.”


Check out the list below.

1. Diddy ($820 million)

2. Jay Z ($810 million)

3. Dr. Dre ($740 million)

4. Birdman ($110 million)

5. Drake ($90 million)
