P. Diddy's NYC Police Escort, Dry Cleaner Under Investigation

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

1. Diddy ($475 million)
2. Jay-Z ($450 million)
3. Dr. Dre ($125 million)
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 (relatively) close second with $450 million. Congrats Diddy.
