Cash Cows in Hip-Hop..

50 Cent, Young Jeezy, Puffy, & Jay-Z

50 Cent, Young Jeezy, Puffy, & Jay-Z

Surprise, Surprise!  Jay-Z is #1 on the Forbes list of ‘Hip Hop Cash Kings in 2009’ by racking in $35 million, which is down from his $82 million he made last year.  Diddy (I still call him ‘Puffy’ from the 90’s), came in 2nd with $30 million.  Kanye West came in 3rd with $25 million.  Seems that Jay-Z’ “team” has more money than everyone combined.  50 Cent, who was #1 last year with $150 million dropped to #4 with $20 million.  The recession is definitely taking it’s toll.  Poor Millionaires; *sarcastic*

Having all that money MUST be nice.  If anyone can contact anyone on this list, tell him to hit me up…
