Jay-Z, Diddy and Dr Dre, all American rappers, are miles ahead of their contemporaries in the net worth department. Puff earned much of his wealth through Cîroc Vodka, Revolt TV, his "Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour", as well as other investments. Along with his music-related income, Jay Z also has a number of business ventures including streaming service Tidal, champagne brand Armand de Brignac, and entertainment company Roc Nation.

In compiling it, Forbes took into cognizance past earnings, financial documents, and value of current holdings. He is accompanied by Drake and Jay Z in the top wealthiest artists list. In 2014, he sold Beats to Apple for $3 billion and it is still paying off massively. Legendary producer Dr. Dre finishes in third place with $740 million. It should come as no surprise that there are some truly staggering net worths.

To complete the top five list, Hotline Bling singer Drake stands with a $90 million worth. Drizzy's last two projects Views and More Life have done extremely well plus his deals with Apple, Nike and Sprite are keeping the money inflow going.
