6. Although Dr. Dre hasn't released an album in almost 10 years, he still makes more money than most of us could even fathom. His record label Aftermath Entertainment is home to several rap legends including Eminem, whose 2010 album 'Recovery' has already had two No. 1 singles. Dr. Dre has left fans in suspense as to when his next and supposed final record 'Detox' will be released, but rumors are circulating that it will be within the next year. Dr. Dre has made about $17 million in 2010.

Lil Wayne's seventh studio album 'Rebirth' was released in February 2010 and debuted at No. 2 on the charts. In addition to his album's success, his latest single 'Drop the World' was certified platinum. As of April 2010, Lil Wayne is also a certified millionaire, making more than $20 million.

In 2009, Akon was also featured on David Guetta's single 'Sexy B----,' which reached No. 1 on the charts in 6 different nations, and he has a new album in the works which should be released in the near future. With the combined revenue from his record labels and his recording career, Akon has grossed approximately $21 million as of April 2010.

It should come as no surprise that the richest rapper is none other than Jay-Z. Like many of his rapping counterparts, Jay-Z has made roughly $63 million this year thanks to his rap career and superb business skills. Jay-Z released his eleventh studio album 'The Blueprint 3' in September 2009, producing several hits including 'Empire State of Mind' featuring Alicia Keys and 'Run This Town' featuring Kanye West and Rihanna. On top of this, Jay-z also co-owns the 40/40 Club and the New Jersey Nets. He also created the Rocawear clothing and is the CEO of Def Jam Recordings. As the husband of Beyonce Knowles and the richest rapper of 2010, Jay-Z seems to be unstoppable.
