Net worth: $250 million

Master P comes in at number five on this list not because of his rap career, but because of his unparalleled skill as a businessman. His investments include a Footlocker outlet, a phone sex company, and real estate investments. He also owns a sports management agency, and a business conglomerate that made $110 million in a single year. But Perhaps P’s most impressive business feat was his deal with Priority Records, which allowed his label to maintain full ownership of their record masters, as well as 85 percent of sales on the records. If Master P offers to manage your money, accept his offer immediately.
