Forbes Magazine has compiled a list of the top five earners who happen to be hip-hop entrepreneurs that double as performers.

The list was made in the same fashion that their top billionaire list was done.

It valued current holdings, past earnings, financial documents and they consulted with analysts, attorneys, managers and other industry insiders to bring you the five rappers that are making the most.

Check out the five wealthiest in Hip-Hop below.

    I don't believe that list to be accurate, I think Jay-Z have more money than Diddy & 50 cent should be in top 3 with them.

  • iblaze112

    why do black people think that jay z have more money then diddy, diddy has alot of businesses that people do not think about in hip hop. people need to get the facts right, just because jay z is who you like.

  • Nee

    *to be inaccurate.

  • seantyty

    i'm not diddy fan but we all know diddy make more money than jay-Z even jay-Z know diddy make more than him. diddy has many business like sean john who worth 500million now aslo he own enyce line and zac posen line,bad boy record and justins also got 50/50 on Ciroc Vadka and many more.diddy even worth more than that soon his gonno be a billioneer.

  • Courtney

    I can't stand 50s bullying, non-rapping A$$.

  • chris

    all i know is that he may not rap anymore but Master is beating Diddy and JayZ by about 200 million or more. He should be no 1. Just google it. Master P was worth almost 500 million in 1998 so the rest just plalying catch up

  • management

    master p is worth around 300 million according to forbes..apparently he was worth more in the past but got bankrupt...so the richest for now is diddy followed by jayz....

  • Sunny (S2R)

    Congrats P. Diddy (Puff Daddy as we used to call U b4 changing to P. Diddy). It's good to be cool, coded & humble so people won't even know one's worth. All other rappers on this list are my men too (Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, 50 Cent & Birdman); congrats to you all as U're stepping up the list. So, let people stop saying Mr. A is wealthier than Mr. B bcos U don't know the criteria/facts used b4 releasing the list and "He" who doesn't talk of his wealth might be found richer than who people talk about every time.

  • seav

    Diddy helped Jay Z anyway....blacks just conviniently ignore that. Just like Dre helped 50 cent
