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

7. Birdman: $20 million
Lil Wayne's "daddy" is the big poppa of Cash Money Records, so you know he's enjoying himself these days. You pretty much can't turn on the radio, television or look outside without seeing one of his little babies.

6. Drake: $20.5 million
He started not to give a fuck and stopped fearing the consequences, and now he's richer than any other former Canadian child star on the planet. Well, okay just kidding. There's still Justin Bieber.

5. Lil Wayne: $27 million
Not even jail can stop this crazy man, because he's not a human being, or something. His Trukfit line of skater clothes, along with his endorsement from Mountain Dew have pushed him over the edge into the top five. We're pretty sure there's nothing Wayne wouldn't do for money, or for anything, at this point. Like, c'mon, he signed Limp Bizkit.
