Drake 5 Richest Rappers In Hip-Hop 2016

Forbes released their famous list The Forbes Five and they now have a new name to add to 5 Richest Rappers In Hip-Hop–Drake.

For years, Forbes’ list of hip-hop’s wealthiest artists has been composed of the same five figures—Birdman, Diddy, Dr. Dre, Jay Z and 50 Cent. But the latter spent his $100 million Vitaminwater windfall faster than we thought, and last summer’s bankruptcy filing knocked him off the list. Enter Drake—flush with cash from touring, music and deals with the likes of Nike, Sprite and Apple—at No. 5, with a net worth of $60 million.

Drake’s $60 million net worth is thanks to a sizeable cash pile, accumulated through multi-platinum recordings, million-dollar-grossing tours and seven figure endorsements. The 29-year-old has been a regular on the Hip-Hop Cash Kings list of highest-earning rappers since his debut in 2010, when he banked an estimated $9 million pre-tax.
