As Forbes recently stated the 5 Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artists Of 2015 have been assembled and revealed by

In top place is Sean John Combs, Puff Daddy, Puffy, Diddy, or P. Diddy, the American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur has amassed $735 million.

Dr. Dre clocks in with $700 million, Jay Z with $550 million, 50 Cent with $155 million and taking up fifth spot is Birdman, with his significant $150 million.

So with the top five having a joint worth of 2.3 billion, it’s certainly not a bad rapping life and very far away fro where they first started from.

As Sean Combes says: “I don’t say it in a cocky way, but I take pride in being one of the best at doing what I do.”

Andre “Dr. Dre” Young says “When the ideas are coming, I don’t stop until the ideas stop because that train doesn’t come along all the time.”

He continues “The secret to my longevity is that I’m a perfectionist.”

Despite his recent claims for bankruptcy Curtis James Jackson III, more commonly known as 50 Cent, is still reputed to be worth $155 million.

Bryan Williams, or Birdman is has also attained the American rappers dream. Starting out as a record he co-founded of Cash Money Records and his journey so far has seen him pocket $150 million.

They all reached their dreams in 2015, so there is still hope for us all.
