Jay-Z tops The Source Magazine's 'Power 30'

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) - It's been a minute since Jay-Z released an album, but he's still got enough swagger to land on The Source's "Power 30" list.

The hip-hop magazine says Jay-Z tops the list because he's an industry leader and a top businessman, with his ventures with Live Nation and Rocawear, and his part-ownership of the New Jersey Nets.

Others on the list include Diddy, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, will.i.am, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain and Kimora Lee Simmons.

President Barack Obama was given top billing on the honorary power list because of his influence on the new hip-hop generation.
