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.
