    Hip-Hop's TOP 10 RICHEST

    [​IMG]

    The clue's in his name but 50 Cent is officially the world's highest earning Hip Hop star.

    He's toppled Jay-Z off the top of the Forbes' annual Hip Hop Cash Kings list.

    Last year, 50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, earned £75m - almost double what Jigga brought home in his pay packet.

    It's not just his tracks which are paying for his bling but his massive business empire.

    He's got money coming in from his own clothing line, videogames, movies, ringtones, flavoured water and there's even talk of him investing in a South African mine.

    P Diddy kept his third place position from last year thanks to his Sean John clothing line, perfumes and reality television shows.


    The rich list

    1. 50 Cent - £80m

    2. Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter - £43m

    3. Sean 'Diddy' Combs - £18m

    4. Kanye West - £16m

    5.Timbaland - £11m

    6. Pharrell Williams - £10m

    7. Kasseem 'Swizz Beatz' Dean - £9m

    8. Snoop Dogg - £8.5m

    9. Dr. Dre - £8m

    10. Ludacris - £7.5m

    i haven't got a single track by 8 of those artists, other than timbaland and pharrell i don't rate any of them at all, especially 50 cent.

    that's the reality.

    Dre and Snoop(untill about 98) and Jay Z(untill about 98 also) are the only ones I listen to. Bit of early Luda too. Kanye's a good producer.

    Apart from that, none of them deserve that money. They make shit music.

    And P Diddy really fucks me off. He was Biggie's bitch basically, then made money off Biggie's death.

    Timbaland produced a lot of decent stuff back in the day.

    These days he's an R&B fag.

    Back in the day he made some cool beats though.

    1. 50 Cent - £80m - Fucking hate the cunt. Although Power of the Dollar (which made him NO money, just got Dre's attention) was pretty good.

    2. Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter - £43m - Went downhill bigtime after The Blueprint IMO

    3. Sean 'Diddy' Combs - £18m - Made money off Biggie's death = cunt

    4. Kanye West - £16m - Pretty sick producer (Flashing Lights is pretty flawless production wise), shit mc really though.

    5.Timbaland - £11m - Use to produce some decent tunes back in the day.

    6. Pharrell Williams - £10m - JOKER. Lapdance is the only half decent thing involving him

    7. Kasseem 'Swizz Beatz' Dean - £9m - Again, JOKER

    8. Snoop Dogg - £8.5m - Went downhill. The Dogfather being one of the best Hip-Hop albums made IMO

    9. Dr. Dre - £8m - The Chronic and 2001 are two flawless albums. Top 5 producer.

    10. Ludacris - £7.5m - Back For the First Time was a pretty sick album. Then there's one word that spoils Ludacris. Crunk...

    That's my low down on them. IMO, not many deserve to be there.

    BTW; IMO = In My Opinion, in case you didn't know.

    BTW; BTW = by the way, in case you didn't know.
