Drake once said he planned to make $250 million by the time he was 29. With less than a year left before he turns 30, he’s the first newcomer to crack the Forbes Five.

For years, the list has been about the same five people – Birdman, Diddy, Dr. Dre, Jay Z and 50 Cent but since 50 Cent filed for bankruptcy last year, he has been knocked off the list.

Drake then swoops in with a net worth of $60 million from touring, music and deals with the likes of Nike, Sprite and Apple—at No. 5. Drake once said of having his financial achievements acknowledged by FORBES “That’s pretty much my objective every year, other than making good music”

This year’s king, Diddy, boasts of a staggering fortune of $750 million, Dr Dre comes in a close second with $710 million dollars. Jay Z ranks third in the race to $1 billion; his net worth now stands at $610 million and Cash Money chief Birdman ranks fourth with $110 million, down from last year due to turmoil within his empire.
