Drake Has Made His Very First Appearance On The Forbes Five List

Drake has made his very first appearance on “The Forbes Five” list, which shows who are currently the wealthiest artists in hip-hop, by coming in at #5.

To compile the Forbes Five list, we follow the same procedures used to calculate our list of the world’s billionaires: looking at past earnings, valuing current holdings, leafing through real estate records and talking to analysts, attorneys, managers, venture capitalists and some of the moguls themselves to find the details.

According to Forbes, Drizzy has a net worth of $60 million, due to his music, touring, and deals with Apple, Nike, and Sprite.
