I'm Obviously in the Wrong Business

Forbes just released the top wealthiest hip-hop artists. It breaks down like this: 1. Diddy ($475 million) 2. Jay-Z ($450 million) 3. Dr. Dre ($125 million) (If I made as much as Diddy; I'd pay people to carry me too) Diddy, Jay-Z and Mr. Young are the top three no doubt, but what might surprise you is who came in a very respectable forth place: 4. Youso ($12 thousand) My hip-hop career hasn't exactly taken off. Here are the real artists rounding out the top five richest hip-hop artists: 4. Birdman ($100 million) 5. 50 Cent ($100 million) Why isn't some of your other favorite artists on the top 5? These estimations by Forbes are built on some specific criteria.

" valuing current holdings, looking at past earnings, leafing through financial documents

and talking to a bevy of analysts, attorneys, managers and other industry players to find the nitty-gritty details.

We considered only performers, which is why Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons isn’t on this list."
