Diddy Tops Forbes Top Hip-Hop Artist List

Hip-hop heroes DJ Clue and Sean "Diddy" Combs kick back at New York's Kiss & Fly on November 3.

Forbes revealed their top five richest hip-hop artists list yesterday (March 9) and Sean "Diddy" Combs taking the top spot. Check out the list below:

1. Diddy ($475 million)

2. Jay-Z ($450 million)

3. Dr. Dre ($125 million0

4. Birdman ($100 million)

5. 50 Cent ($100 million)

With a fortune of $475 million, Diddy reigns due to his interests in Sean John Clothing, his Bad Boy Worldwide Record label, and most significantly, his Diageo joint-venture Vodka brand, Ciroc. Blame it on the alcohol!

Jay-Z comes in at a close second with $450 million. Congrats Diddy.
