Forbes takes a look at the Top 5 wealthiest artists in the Hip Hop genre. Three of the people pictured above are on the list.

To narrow down the list Forbes went through an analyzing procedure. The following factors went into the decision making, “valuing current holdings, looking at past earnings, leafing through financial documents and talking to a bevy of analysts, attorneys, managers and other industry players to find the nitty-gritty details. We considered only performers, which is why hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons isn’t on this list.”

3. Dr. Dre ($125 million)
