Forbes released its annual rich rapper list yesterday and to no one's surprise Jay-Z was on top. Hov has claimed the top spot on that list in three out of the last four years, thanks in large part to his enormous deal with Live Nation. The rest of the top five is filled out by fellow moguls Diddy and Dr. Dre, along with MITs (moguls in training) Akon and Lil Wayne. All told, these five guys brought in $151 million last year. The next 15 dudes on the list brought in another $156 million, which means the 20 richest rappers brought down $307 million last year. That's a lot of dollars! To put that number into perspective, here's some stuff they could have purchased with their cash:

+ 61.4 wedding rings for Beyonce.

+ 146 Bugatti Veyron's, the $2.1 million car Birdman bought earlier this year.

+ 750 Maybach 62s.

+ 49,120 "Eye Candy" grills from Grills by Paul Wall.

+ 626,530 pairs of Lanvin sneakers, which Kanye thinks are great for jogging.

+ 21,928,571 shrimp quesadillas at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club.
