Forbes has released its list of the five wealthiest hip hop artistes in 2015, and there's a new name at the top.

Usually, the honour of being the richest man in rap goes to Dr. Dre, but this year it's different. Diddy beats out Dre with a net worth of US$735 million, which is due to his various companies, including Revolt, Ciroc and AQUAhydrate.

Dre is at number two with $700 million, while Jay Z is third with $550 million.

50 Cent and Birdman fall into sequential spots with $155 million and $150 million respectively.
