11. Drake

Arguably the hottest rapper to break out in years, Aubrey Drake Graham is worth an estimated $10 million. Drizzy’s signing to Young Money, hit album Thank Me Later, tour dates and deals with Sprite and Virgin America have added to his success. What other rapper do you know with their face on a plane? It’s Drizzy baby….

10. Kanye West

Despite a tumultuous year and cries of controversy, Kanye can boast a net worth of $12 million. The G.O.O.D. music head is expected to earn $25 million by the end of the year with his various production credits and release of his still untitled album.

9.  Pharrell Williams

Although a Pharrell song has yet to top the charts in years, his work with his band N.E.R.D. and various outside ventures in furniture, clothing and art have accumulated to $13 million in earnings. Additionally Pharell’s work on the soundtrack for animated film “Despicable Me” helped him come in at the #9 spot, well deserved for the hit producer, rapper and writer.

8. Timbaland

Timbaland’s self admitted recluse from Hip-Hop has obviously served him well with the producer earning $14 million. His pop solo album Shock Value II dwindled in sales but his work with Shakira, Jay-Z and Drake have kept the checks coming in. Add in a gig with DJ Hero 2 and Timbo’s at #8.

7. Snoop Dogg

Cali’s O.G. is worth an estimated $15 million making him worthy of the #7 spot. His Malice In Wonderland tour earned him an estimated $10 million despite dwindling album sales. His recorded earnings can also be traced to an appearance on soap opera One Life To Live and role in the movie Bruno.
