The 20 Richest Rappers: From Pitbull to Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Kanye, Jay-Z, and Dre Day

16. Swizz Beatz: $7 million, tie
She ain't got no money in the bank, but this motherfucker has pounds of it all over the place. One of the hottest producers in hip-hop snagged deals with Lotus and Reebok this year.

15. 50 Cent: $7.5 million
Not only did Fiddy survive this year, he blew it out of the water. Not Vitamin Water anymore, but still. His music, G-Unit fashions and video games, as well as his own line of headphones keeps his sitting pretty.

14. Snoop Dog Lion: $8.5 million
Even though he changed his name, his routing number stays the same. "Nuthing But A G Thang" is still required listening for high schoolers, so his cake is going to stay bakin' for a hot minute.
