Drake Makes The Top 5 Of Forbes 2017 Hip Hop Wealthiest Artists List

Forbes have revealed who the top 5 rappers are that have made their 2017 “Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists” list and Drake is one of them.

With a total of $90 million, Drizzy made the #5 spot on the list, which is calculated by “looking at past earnings, valuing current holdings, leafing through financial documents and talking to analysts, attorneys, managers, other industry players and even some of the moguls themselves to find the details”.

Above the 6 God was Birdman in fourth place with $110 million, Dr. Dre in third place with $740 million, Jay Z in second place with $810 million, and Diddy in first place with $820 million!

Rounding out the Forbes Five is Aubrey “Drake” Graham at $90 million. Last year’s Views became the first album to top 1 billion spins on Apple Music and helped fuel a grueling tour that took the Toronto native from Atlanta to Amsterdam, grossing north of $1 million per night along the way. His deals with Apple, Nike and Sprite should keep the cash coming.
