The 2010 Hip Hop Rich List

19 Aug

Forbes has released it’s annual hip hop rich list for 2010:

In turbulent times stability often constitutes success–and that’s the case in hip-hop this year. The top 20 earners on this year’s Cash Kings list racked up $300 million in earnings, the same as last year, despite a troubled world economy and a music industry thrown into flux by new technology. Artists like Jay-Z, Diddy, Ludacris and Snoop Dogg have thrived, adapting to the new world order by diversifying their revenue streams beyond recorded music.

The top five consists of:

1. Shawn “Jay- Z” Carter – $63 million
2. Sean “Diddy” Combs – $30 million
3. Aliuane “Akon” Thiam – $21 million
4. Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter – $20 million
5. Andre “Dr Dre” Young – $17 million
