Like they always do about this time, Forbes has issued their annual report on Hip-Hop’s haves and have-nots. For 2015, the top dogs remain pretty much the same as they always are, minus a bit of musical chairs. P. Diddy made his way past Dr. Dre as his investments in things like Revolt and Ciroc pushed his earnings up to the $735 million mark (Dre hit $700 million). With their equally diversified portfolios, Jay Z and 50 Cent both helped fill out the list.

What’s most amusing is that Birdman made the list at number five – down one spot from last year – with an estimated net worth of $150 million. With his ongoing legal issues with Lil Wayne, that information is kind of like stuntin’ too hard in front of a baby momma or people you owe money to. They’re definitely coming for their slice of the pie, no matter how broke he may cry.

Check out the figures for each entertainer below and catch the breakdown for each here.

1. Diddy – $735 Million
2. Dr. Dre – $700 Million
3. Jay Z – $550 Million
4. 50 Cent – $155 Million
5. Birdman – $150 Million
