Diddy Lands At #1 On Forbes Top Hip Hop Earners


Everyone was surprised that Dr. Dre didn’t top the Forbes list again this year, but his spot was taken by none other than Diddy.

Dre sold Beats to Apple last May for $3.2 billion, but still didn’t make enough to top The Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists 2015 list. Dre came in second behind Diddy who brought in  a staggering net worth of $735 million!

Dre sits in at $700 million behind Diddy who acquired his wealth through Ciroc, Alkaline brand Aquahydrate water, and his RevoltTV brand.

Finishing off the list is Jay Z at #3 who brought in $550 million, 50 Cent at #4 with $155 million, and Birdman finishing last at $150 million.
