When Forbes Magazine released their 5 richest rappers list with Diddy being #1... a lot of people had questions. Read below for details and see the video with the breakdown.
Some people expected Dr Dre to be #1 while others expected Jay Z to be #1... while many people had questions about why 50 Cents worth was so low considering he got $100 Million from the vitamin water deal.
Forbes explains that Diddy is the richest person in Hip Hop worth $550 Million because of his Ciroc deal, every time you buy Ciroc, Diddy gets paid.
Net time people start complaining that Jay Z needs to retire because he's too old... remember this list, Forbes magazine says Jay Z is #2 worth $460 Million because he's still making big money off his music and a few other things,
As for Dr Dre... He's #3 worth $270 Million because aside from the money he makes off music... he owns 1/2 of the Beats By Dre headphone company, they got a 300 Million dollar deal from HTC phone company, so... you do the math :)
Baby (Birdman)is #4 worth $125 Million because he's getting paid off wayne and Young Money... Baby usually likes to rant about being richer than Jay Z... he might wanna think twice about that statement. You can add up Baby, Lil Wayne and everybody else from Cash Money & Young Money together and it still won't equal what Jay Z is worth. Nonetheless $125 Million IS a lot of money, it's more money than the average person will make in 125 lifetimes... baby should feel blessed instead of complaining.
Many people questioned why is 50 Cent is #5 worth $100 MILLION considering he made $100 million off the vitamin water deal. Forbes says 50's money is lower because he is living a extrazangt life style, he kinda implied that 50 is living beyond his means with the cars, houses...etc.
