thank you!!!!! list is wrong !!!
The article clearly, and almost redundantly states how they come up with the list.

In order to form the list, we followed the same procedures we use to calculate the list of the world’s billionaires (released today) — 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.

Nothing in that explanation of methods used to compile the list leads me believe that even Forbes themselves thinks that this list is 10000% hard accurate indisputable facts. The part I bolded is all speculation and opinion of people with interests in the industry. The only way to make this list what yall think it is, would be to illegaly access personal non-public financial records, which won't happen, so agree or not this list is as close as we will get to understanding who really has what.

People are so quick to take what's in front of them at face value - everybody can read but few can comprehend.

Wasn't 50 ranked in the forbes years ago as being between 200-300 mill? how did his net worth drop so drastically compared to Puff and Jay?

I also thought Pharrell was over 100 mill , guess not.
didnt you read about 50 loosing in investments?

that's the thing about net worth. They count your investment portfolio (what they a.ssume to be in it). You can own $20 million in real estate, then the value of real estate goes down....now all of a sudden, you own $11 million. "Value" is a relative term, it's basically only what someone will pay you for it. $1 is a $1 everyday. But, $200 million in google stock, can be $175 million in 5 hours.....or $220 million.

1)The 50 deal after all was said and done netted him about 150million....not the 400 which was originally said
2)Its very difficult to make an accurate estimation on their networth......stock holdings and other values fluctuate so much in a short period of time that these numbers could be overvalued or maybe even extreme undervalued. I remember hearing that before the crash of 2008 Jay was aorun 650-700 million....you can see how that all changed....he didnt go and spend it like someone asked....but the value of his a.ssets have dropped.

To really get an accurate estimation on their net worth...everyone would have to sell all of their a.ssets and liquify it all. Then afterwards you can see what they are worth....ofcourse that would never happen.

But in Puffs and Jays case....their "assests" are businesses and stock holdings....and investsment that cross the entire world......so their a.ssets are held in things that will hopefully increase in value overtime......Baby just has cars and ice and clothes....things that will depreciate over time.

Belee dat playboi

Wayne's been putting in all this work just for Birdman and Slim to reap the greatest benefits.
pretty much. he's gotta know that. him having his own lablel don't really mean s**t if it's still under baby and them.
he's one stupid n*gga for that if you ask me. he could've have his own hov situation far as owning his own everything but chose to stay with his 'daddy'

lol so jay, wroth 750 million 8 years ago, somehow he spent/lost 300 million? lmao, forbes also says carlos slim is the richest man in the world...lmfao lmfao...I know you write a magazine, so you went to journalism school (another fail for you), say no homo in your articles (triple fail), and you forgot, jay has over a billion now (that's well known), and the richest people are oil sheeks in dubai..dumb f**ks...smh...I hate how people believe the bulls**t someone tells them...like obama is gonna change the country, well ok, he sure did f**k it up...so I guess that's more change than bush's good?
