Drake takes 50 Cent's place in Forbes' hip-hop rich list

Drake has swooped in to replace 50 Cent on Forbes' list of hip-hop's wealthiest stars.

The Get Rich Or Die Tryin' rapper filed for bankruptcy last year after a New York City jury ordered him to pay $7 million (£4.9m) to a woman who said he posted her sex tape online.​

That means Drake claims fifth place on the list with a net worth of $60 million thanks to deals with Nike, Apple and Sprite as well as his touring and music.

​"That's pretty much my objective every year," Drake previously said of having his financial achievements acknowledged by Forbes. "Other than making good music."​

Drizzy still has some way to go if he wants to meet his objective of making $250 million by the time he's 30 (that's less than a year away!).

P Diddy tops the list yet again with a fortune of $750 million stemming mainly from his deal with Ciroc vodka.

Dr Dre follows closely with $710 million, boosted by last year's Straight Outta Compton biopic and the sale of Beats By Dr Dre two years ago.

Jay Z is third with a net worth of $610 million after TIDAL's explosion into three times its $56 million purchase price.

Finally, Cash Money co-founder Birdman is fourth with $110 million.
