P-DIDDYWho says Hip-Hop doesn’t pay? The usual suspects remain atop of The Forbes Five list when it comes to Hip-Hop’s wealthiest.

Sean ‘Puff Daddy’ Combs, Andre ‘Dr. Dre’ Young, Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter, Bryan ‘Birdman’ Williams and Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson sit on top of the annual list.

The race to Hip-Hop’s first billionaire is easily being won by the man at the helm of The Forbes Five, Puff Daddy, with an estimated worth of $700 million, adding $120 million over last year’s total. With the tune of having $550 million to his ears, Dr. Dre, the ‘Beats By Dre’ mogul is $30 million ahead of Jigga Man, whose fortune is listed at $520 million. Birdman’s $160 million is slightly better than 50 Cent’s $140 million.
