Sean Combs tops the list as the wealthiest mogul in this years Forbes Five: Hip Hop's Wealthiest Artists list, and could easily reach the billionaire mark before he's finished with the game. Better known as Diddy, the platinum album selling founder of Bad Boy Records boasts not only a stellar career in music, but has made noise in the fashion industry and has become the unofficial party ambassador for anyone who has enjoyed the 'goodtime' that is Ciroc vodka.
Diddy stands atop the list with a net worth of $550 million. See who else made the list after the jump.
Sean Carter came in 4th at very close $460 million, but with a career spanning over a decade Jay Z continues to sell out arenas and make music that inspires a generation. This man is far from done.
"When your album sales weren't doing too good" Dre was the doctor they told yo to go see. Coming in at #3, the west coast rap pioneer Dr Dre is worth and impressive $270 million thanks to albums sales and the success of the popular Beats by Dre headphones endorsements.
Brrrrrrr! I can tell you exactly "what happened to that boy"; he made a number of great business moves, and under the Cash Money umbrella, Bryan "Birdman" Williams came in at #4 with a net worth of $125 million.Curtis Jackson rounds out #5 with a net worth of around $110 million, despite splurging freely on the finer things in life during the earlier stages in his career. After a lucrative deal with Vitamin Water, and current dealings with Street Kings energy drink, Fiddy is still one to be reckoned with.
Nothing like that's about his business. Kudos guys. ~vK
