Categories: Lists, News

Say what up to Cash Money's Birdman and this year's hip-hop cash kings.

When you're in the rap biz, it's all about the Benjamins.

No matter how many shiny awards are stacked somewhere in that multimillion-dollar mansion, you've only truly made it when you rank among Forbes' wealthiest hip-hop artists.

More than just lyrical worth, the worth of these rap moguls was calculated based on their past earnings, current holdings, and financial documents, as well as face time with analysts, attorneys, managers, and other industry players.

Check out the five richest rappers of 2014.

5. 50 Cent, $140 Million
Fiddy's such a "Hustler." So it's no huge surprise that Curtis Jackson comes in as the fifth richest rapper of the year. How has 50 Cent stockpiled so many millions? Mainly from his $100 million check from the sale of Vitaminwater back in 2007. Throw in an endorsement deal with SMS Audio, the launch of Street King energy shots with SK Energy beverages, and the upcoming June release of his fifth studio album, Animal Ambition, on G-Unit Records, and you've got yourself the formula for a hip-hop cash king.
