It’s that time again! Forbes has just released their annual list of the five most wealthiest hip-hop artists to be walking this earth. The top five artists haven’t nudged much since last year’s list, with only change being Jay-Z knocking out Dr. Dre in the #2 slot sliding him to third position. While Diddy and Jay stand toe to toe with one another for the title of hip-hops first billionaire.
Interested in knowing the guidelines to even be considered to make this “Rich List” below I have provided Forbes explanation on their methodology:
“In order to complete the Forbes Five list, we follow the same procedures used to calculate our list of the world’s billionaires: looking at past earnings, valuing current holdings, leafing through financial documents and talking to analysts, attorneys, managers, other industry players and even some of the moguls themselves to find the details.”
You have to really be on point with your hustle & these men prove to be certified with cash year after year on each other’s ankles to the top.
