Forbes' just announced the five richest people in hip-hop. No, Dr. Dre is not in fact a billionaire. He's also not at the top of the list. Diddy reigns at #1 with $735m (thanks, in large part, to his deal with Ciroc), and Dre follows with $700m. Jay Z rounds out the Top 3 with $550m. 50 Cent and Birdman (aka Baby of Cash Money) complete the list with $155m and $150, respectively. The results were tabulated based on current holdings, earnings and the assessments of other industry types. In a related story, a hedge-fund manager would now like to spit a verse.
