These men top Forbes' Richest Hip-Hop list. Together, they are worth billions.
See why we’re adding a dash of skim milk to our brew:
- Forbes ranked Diddy, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Birdman and 50 Cent the top richest men in Hip-Hop. Combined, they’re worth billions of dollars. Diddy’s estimated net worth is $550M with earnings coming from Circo, Bad Boy and several other business ventures. Jay-Z’s net worth is reported to be $460M. Most of his wealth is earned through touring, selling his Rocawear label, his Live Nation deal, owning part of the NJ Nets and his clubs. [YBF]

So, it’s all the time, even off camera.” [EURweb]
