Bloomberg BusinessWeek crunched the numbers to find the biggest gaps between a few rappers' stated wealth and their actual income. Major findings: Jay-Z is actually telling the truth, Nicki Minaj… not so much. (Click the picture to view the graph.)

While the graphic is cool, I'd be remiss to not point out a couple of (pretty egregious) mistakes made by the fine writers at BW. Several of the rappers (namely Rick Ross, Ludacris, and Nas) are clearly referring to their net worth. BW only gives their yearly annual income. Big difference.

And, yes, for a group of free-spenders not exactly known for smart financial acumen, this mistake would classify as ironic.
