  /  03.10.2011


Diddy is rolling in the dough. The entertainment mogul has been crowned the richest rapper, according to Forbes.

Thanks to his various ventures, Sean “Diddy” Combs is sitting on a fortune valued at an estimated $475 million, securing him the No. 1 spot on the magazine’s Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists list. His net worth is attributed to his Sean John clothing line, Bad Boy label, and Cîroc, which has become the top premium vodka on the market.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z clocks in behind Puff, with his bank account worth $450 million. The Brooklyn rapper racked up the massive amount with his various enterprises including his Roc Nation label, fashion, touring, and record sales. Dr. Dre comes in at No. 3 with $125 million, roping in his cash from endorsing HP laptops and releasing his successful Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.

50 Cent and Birdman tie for fourth with a cool $100 million to their names. The G-Unit Records CEO got his funds from selling his shares in vitaminwater to Coca-Cola for nine figures, while Baby continues pulling in money from his Young Money-Cash Money labels, which have been on a hot streak with platinum releases from Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Wayne.
