From Forbes.com:
While Jay-Z topped Forbes.com's inaugural Hip-Hop Cash Kings list of the top-earning people in the business last year, in 2008 he cedes the throne to Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, who raked in $150 million over the past 12 months--almost twice what Jay-Z made.
damn...u left diddy out??? lol. and when ur asking which one is the richest, ur actually asking for net worth, not cash in the bank...the richest is the person who is worth the most. Curtis got more hands on money.
From Forbes.com:
Diddy is Ranked 3rd in the Hip Hop Cash Kings of 2008 making a total of 35 million.
