Sean Combs is king, while surprisingly, Bow Wow did not make the list.

Forbes released their annual list of the five wealthiest names in hip-hop, which will appear in their upcoming April 15 issue. The rankings are as follows (with no big surprises here):

1. Diddy ($580 million)
2. Jay-Z ($475 million)
3. Dr. Dre ($350 million)
4. Birdman ($150 million)
5. 50 Cent ($125 million)

Zach O’Malley breaks down the list and explains Forbes’ methodology in compiling the list in the video below.
