They all claim to be the rappers alive but which MC's have the biggest bank accounts and do they have as much money their mouth's say they do? The list certainly isn't surprising, well not unless you count Nelly still being there somehow having more money than Nas who doesn't feature, we’re guessing Heart and Magic FM must still play 'Dilemma' on a heavy rotation. Top of the list is Diddy with a cool half a billion to his name closely followed by a proper rapper in Jay Z.

Master P comes in third, while even the popularity of Dr Dre's endorsed headphones cant put more distance between the former NWA star and his protégé 50 Cent with just $10m separating them. Another of Dre’s Aftermath signings, Eminem comes in 6th. Veterans, Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg both feature in the top ten while Kanye West languishes in just 11th place 5 million behind Lil Wayne.
