It’s that time of the year again where Forbes lets us know who our next victim—I mean, inspiration should be. In all seriousness, Forbes recently revealed their list of the wealthiest artists in Hip Hop.

The top 5 wealthiest Hip Hop artists on this list are definitely all heavy hitters in their own right but chile, that difference in dollars from the no.1 spot to the no.5 spot is insane!

Diddy is once again leading the pack at the no.1 spot with an estimated net worth of a whopping $820 million. A lot of those millions are from all the shmoney that was rolling in from his Ciroc Vodka, Revolt TV as well as the Bad Boy Reunion Tour.

Meanwhile, I’m transferring chump change from my savings to my checkings account…

Jay Z is next up in line as he snatched the no.2 spot from Dr. Dre. Jay is not far behind from Diddy as he is worth an estimated $810 million–$200million more than he made last year.

Who do ya’ll think will hit the billion dollar mark first?

Coming in 3rd place with an estimated net worth of $740 million is Dr. Dre of course.

Still in the millions, but with a major drop compared to the top 3 is Birdman. He takes the no.4 spot with an estimated net worth of $110 million.

Rounding up the top 5 wealthiest artists in Hip Hop is Drake, who takes the no.5 spot with an estimated net worth of $90 million.

I think it’s safe to say these artists will continue to be a part of the top 5 wealthiest artists in Hip Hop for at least a couple more years.
