Best Review - Top 5 Money Making Hip-Hop Artists


ip-hop music originated in the 1970s in Bronx, NY (according to wikipedia) and gained mainstream notoriety in the 1980s...One its most recent celebrity deaths being that of the "overweight lover", Heavy D in November 2011, which shocked many fans worldwide... Heavy D's classy cool character is what enabled him to be one of the ground-breaking artists, which made hip-hop popular in many households across America...He was definitely one of the entertainers that paved the way for this top money-making list of rappers...

Coming in at the number one and two positions are two artists that are neck-in-neck because although it appears as though one made more annual cash as of mid-year 2011 the others net worth is greater...Let the true accountants be the judge...Being a layman, I would have to say that Jay-Z and Diddy tie for the number one money-making Hip-Hop entrepreneurs (although this format doesn't allow for two listings in one position)...
