Step one: secure the bag. Step two: secure more bags.

Forbes announced their annual Hip-Hop Cash Kings list and Puff Daddy reigns supreme once again. Last year, Puffy topped the list with $60 million. This year, he beat himself and netted a whopping $62 million.

Jay Z follows up closely behind the Bad Boy mogul with $53.3 million and Beats by Dre mogul Dr. Dre rounds out the top three with $41 million earned. Drake’s been the busiest, but he comes in at number four with $38.5 million.

Drake’s accompanied by two other Cash Money artists who rounded out the top 10 list: Nicki Minaj and Birdman. While Nicki Minaj’s year has been pretty quiet, she managed to earn $20.5 million, beating out her boss Birdman, who scraped in $18 million. Further down the list, J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Macklemore, and Ryan Lewis all tie with $14 million earned.
