    Where's 50 Cent? Not in the Top 10 of Forbes' annual "Hip-Hop Cash Kings" list for 2010. The list is topped by Jay-Z and Diddy, which should shock no one.

    Forbes estimates that Beyonce's hubby grossed $63 million last year. Rounding out the top five are: Diddy ($30 million), Akon ($21 million), Lil’ Wayne ($20 million) and Dr. Dre ($17 million). That's a lot of zeroes right there. Other artists/Entrepreneurs that made the overall list include Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Timbaland. Kanye West, Drake and Eminem.

    Who is your favorite artist on this list? Have you lined their pockets with your cash by purchasing their wares?
